Car jam Weller drives Gallagher mad

Noel Gallagher has talked about his stressful drive with Paul Weller

Noel Gallagher has shared the details of an ill-fated car journey he took across London with Paul Weller.

The former Oasis star was a passenger with The Jam star Paul at the wheel when they went to visit a sick pal, he told The Sun's Gordon Smart on his XFM show.

Rock royalty Noel and Paul were on their way to visit Beady Eye guitarist Gem Archer who recently broke his leg in a bathroom accident at home while recovering from fracturing his skull.

Noel, who got a lift from neighbour Paul, said: "Weller just threw the sat nav at me and said, 'Do you know how to work it?' Obviously, I said 'no' - I don't even drive.

"I'm a world-famous rock star, I've got people and a beautiful wife to do that for me."

The pair set off anyway but shocked a passer-by when they had to stop for directions.

Noel continued: "So off we go, with no idea of the route. Driving around North London, with me trying to tell him the right direction.

"He was cutting people up and calling them all sorts. We stopped to ask this lad if he knew where to go. He nearly had a heart attack when he saw us in the car."

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Virgo:

A home improvement project will grind to a halt. Someone who is close to your heart may need some peace and quiet. Be prepared to send a repair professional away while your loved one recovers. If you're renting a space, your landlord may tell you to leave with very little notice. Stay calm. It will be easier to find new living arrangements if you remain logical. Spread the word on social media. Be specific about your needs. A friend or acquaintance may hear of somewhere suitable for you.More
