Noel Gallagher has told how he's been left with tinnitus thanks to years of guitar-playing.

The Oasis turned High Flying Birds star said that he went for a brain scan to find out what was wrong with him.

He told Andy Goldstein's TalkSport show: "I went for a brain scan. They did find it!

"I've got bizarre ringing in my ears. I think it's just through playing guitar for the last 20 years so I had to sit in a tube in the hospital.

"It's an accumulation of many things but I've had a b****y great time doing it all and if I do eventually die of brain disease it will have been worth it," The Sun reported him saying.

He said he was asked to put on headphones and chose classical music.

"It came on and it was the exact music I play to my little kid when he goes to bed. I was in there for 25 minutes.

"It was horrible. I know what the results will be - 'There is nothing wrong with you'. It's another way of fleecing money out of you."

Aquarius:

This is a great time to go shopping. You'll find some clothes, furniture or artwork that seems tailor made to your taste. Don't worry about spending more money than usual. The things you buy will give you years of pleasure. If you're looking for work, volunteer at a charitable organisation that is close to your heart. This will lead to a paying position that is emotionally fulfilling. You're tired of dead end jobs that leave you cold. It's time to move in a more rewarding direction.More
