The importance of being 'bone idle'

Noel Gallagher said he writes songs for a hobby, but can't be bothered to release them

Noel Gallagher has said he has enough new material for three new albums but can not be bothered to record them.

The former Oasis star, who said he was spending most of his time "sitting around being bone idle", said: "I write all the time, I don't write for any specific project, I write because it's my hobby.

"I'm not really in the process of writing an album, I've got enough material for about three records anyway so it's just a case of when I want to do it, when I can be bothered.

"The way it is, I think it's enough for people's little brains to deal with one album at a time let alone three."

Noel recently took over the organisation of the Teenage Cancer Trust concerts at the Royal Albert Hall and said: "It's a lot of phone calls and a lot of conversations that don't amount to much in the end but it's all right, it's nice to help out."

The singer-songwriter released his first album after quitting Oasis in 2011 when Noel Gallagher's High Flying Birds topped the charts in the UK and eventually outsold the debut by brother Liam's new band Beady Eye.

A colleague who takes great pleasure in making everyone feel miserable should be reprimanded. Make it clear you aren't the only person who is suffering from their abuse. Explain how this bully is ruining morale. It's a system wide problem that needs to be nipped in the bud.More
