Andy Bell, former bandmate from Oasis, brought up the possibility of a reunion, but Liam Gallagher swiftly dismissed the idea. Despite Liam's persistent attempts to reconcile with his brother Noel Gallagher and revive Oasis, Andy, now with the band Ride, maintains a guarded optimism about the prospect. Reflecting on the potential reunion, Andy shared his thoughts with Virgin Radio, acknowledging the uncertainty but leaving room for hope:
"Yeah, they probably will. I think yeah, they probably will do it. I don't think it looks likely right now, but life is long, isn't it?"

Oasis finds itself among the nominees for the 2024 Rock & Roll Hall of Fame induction, although Liam's response to the honor was less than enthusiastic, urging the organization to "do me a favor and f**k off." Liam has embarked on a new musical venture with ex-Stone Roses guitarist John Squire, following the release of their joint LP (and Liam has said that album is "just the starter," with the "main course" and "f**king dessert" yet to come).

Andy speculated that an Oasis reunion could follow a path similar to the Stone Roses, despite the tumultuous history between the Gallagher brothers that led to the band's dissolution in 2009. "They were not getting on at all, and there was a lot of bad blood in the press and stuff with the Roses, and then suddenly you were hearing about gigs," Andy remarked. "I think we could see something like that for Oasis." However, Liam remains adamant about moving forward, dismissing Andy's remarks: "Andy Bell from Ride, the shoegazing phenomenon, should really not be getting people's hopes up," he remarked on X (or, if you wish to be difficult to Elon, on Twitter).

Shutting down Oasis reunion rumors

In response to growing speculation and fan interest, Liam reiterated his stance on an Oasis reunion: "I've never mentioned [an] Oasis reunion. It's over. We must all really move [on] for our own mental health." In light of the reaction, Andy issued an apology on X, clarifying his comments and attempting to temper expectations: "Apologies! I didn't mean to get anyone's hopes up. Nothing to see here!"

Recently, Noel Gallagher appeared on The Black Keys' Ohio Players album, suggesting he can keep moving on to newer projects just fine. Still, some fans of the band might want them to reuinute, perhaps just to see what happens!
