A close friend to both siblings, rocker Richard Ashcroft claims he believes the brothers' estrangement in 2009 will lead the two into exciting new musical projects.
' break-up will give brothers Liam Gallagher and Noel Gallagher a "new lease of life", rocker Richard Ashcroft has claimed. The former frontman of , who is close friends with both siblings and played a number gigs with Oasis when both bands were starting out in the early '90s, believes last year's split will lead the pair into exciting new musical projects.

"I spoke to Noel a couple of days ago," he told ShortList magazine. "He's going to go through similar questions to the ones I went through in 2000. But he wrote the songs in the biggest band of the '90s, so he's got nothing to worry about. It'll be a new lease of life for both of them. I'm quite excited about it."

But Richard, whose band initially split in 2000 before reforming in 2007 and disbanding again in 2009, has ruled out the possibility of collaborating with either Liam or Noel, and is dismayed by the number of duets currently in the charts.

Asking about whether he'd be interested in recording a track with either Gallagher, he said, "Now you see someone's album coming out and there are 15 different people on it. The younger generation, like , are getting into 'Top Trumps' music - 'I'm going to Top Trump you with how many guests I've got.' "
