    Noel Gallagher wrote most of the songs which made Oasis one of the world's biggest rock acts during the mid-1990s. He is convinced he will never replicate that success. Ever.

    His solo act, Noel Gallagher's High Flying Birds, topped the UK charts, but he doesn't think he'll ever top his past. Since, really, Oasis were massive in the mid-90s.

    In an interview with Mark Lawson for the BBC, Gallagher said, "Nothing anybody does can be as big as Oasis. Not Coldplay, not Kasabian, not the Arctic Monkeys, in this country not U2, not any of them, its as simple as that. It's not only me that lives up to that legacy, everyone else has too. We were the last. We were the greatest. The end." Wow, that's modest.

    Tell us how you really feel, Noel. Now maybe you can get it together with your brother Liam and bury the hatchet?

    What is your favorite Oasis song? Mine is "Champagne Supernova," but say "champagne" like Christopher Walken did during an SNL skit years ago!
