Noel Gallagher recently opened up about his experience with cocaine abuse in the 90s.
The Oasis legend recently appeared on Matt Morgan’s Funny How? podcast where he delved into his experience with the drug, the reason he decided to quit, and an instance where landed in the hospital.
“Imagine having the psychosis and having to have to go to hospital,” he began. “They don’t understand a word you’re saying because of your accent and you’re like ‘I think I am on my way out’.”
In 1997, Noel recognised that his drug-taking was having a profoundly negative impact on his life — inducing crippling panic attacks. “I had a few brutal panic attacks, which is why I quit,” he revealed.
These days, Gallagher reckons that people who dabble in cocaine are “boring.”
“You just know that when the coke comes out the night is going to take a shit turn” he told the Irish Independent last year. “It’s always like fun and games and once someone gets the coke out then all of a sudden it’s, ‘Well, it’s time for me to go anyway because this is now boring.’”
Last month, Noel Gallagher treated fans to unheard Oasis track ‘Don’t Stop…’. Gallagher found the track whilst rummaging through his belongs in iso.
“Like the rest of the world, I’ve had infinite time to kill lately so I thought I’d FINALLY look and find out what was actually on the HUNDREDS of faceless unmarked CDs I’ve got lying around in boxes at home,” the singer wrote in a note posted to Twitter.
“As fate would have it I have stumbled upon an old demo which I thought had been lost forever,” he continued, adding that the only version of the song that’s “out there” was from a “soundcheck in Hong Kong 15 years ago.
”I know some of you love this tune so we thought we’d put it ”out there” for you to enjoy/argue over.” You can listen to the song below.
