Noel Gallagher has revealed that he struggles to remember lyrics to his songs while performing onstage.Speaking on Matt Morgan’s Patreon podcast – per a Guardian report – the former Oasis member and Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds frontman revealed that his age is catching up to him.Gallagher – now aged 56 – pegged his forgetfulness to the “ongoing march of time”. Gallagher told Matt Morgan: “I’ve found myself on this tour consciously thinking: ‘What is the next line to this song?’ It’s like, you’ve just got to think about it.”He went on to say that he would consider using a teleprompter for lyrics in the future: “I’m sure, eventually, I’ll need one.”Gallagher isn’t the only musician to reveal they need aid in remembering lyrics.
In late 2020, Paul McCartney revealed he uses a teleprompter at his live shows in case he forgets the lyrics to The Beatles‘ songs.“Sometimes I’ll be doing a song, like ‘Eleanor Rigby’ [released in 1966] or something, and I’m on autopilot. And I’m starting to think, ‘Oh, what am I gonna have for dinner?’ Then I go, ‘Stop!’ because I’m singing ‘Eleanor Rigby’! I’ve separated myself not only from Paul and fame, but a couple of bits in my head are going in different places,” McCartney said.McCartney added at the time: “Sometimes that breaks down and I forget the song.
I have a teleprompter.”Earlier this month, Noel Gallagher‘s High Flying Birds announced former Kasabian frontman Tom Meighan as the support act for their 2023 UK arena tour.
