Noel Gallagher has said he would still be working as a roadie if his music career hadn't panned out so well.

The Oasis star turned High Flying Birds singer worked on the road for indie band the Inspiral Carpets during the late 80s before rising to fame with his brother Liam.

Noel said: "I would have been out there now, probably in an ill-fitting black T-shirt with a tattoo and some scruffy Converse trainers. Because that is what they all wear.

"But I was maybe the best-dressed roadie in the history of music. I used to wear white jeans and never got them dirty. I was too quick for the dirt," The Sun quoted him as saying.

Oasis split up three years ago after an argument between the brothers backstage at a concert in Paris. Noel wrote Oasis hits including chart-toppers Don't Look Back In Anger, Some Might Say and Go Let It Out.

He launched his solo career in 2011. His debut solo album made it to number one in the album chart.

Noel has just confirmed the release of his first solo live DVD on October 15.

International Magic Live At The O2 will feature the full gig from his performance in February this year plus footage of his performance from the NME Awards, where he was crowned Godlike Genius 2012.
