Noel Gallagher has said that he will never reach the heights of his old band, Oasis.

He also added the other bands, including U2, could never top Oasis either.

The musician, who currently fronts The High Flying Birds, admitted that he feels the pressure of his former band. The comments were made on the BBC4 documentary, Marks Lawson Talks To ... Noel Gallagher.

"Nothing anybody does can be as big as Oasis. Not Coldplay, not Kasabian, nor the Arctic Monkeys. In this country not U2, not any of them. It's as simple as that."

Gallagher continued: "It's not only me that lives up to that legacy, everyone else has to too. We were the last. We were the greatest. The end."

Gallagher also spoke about rumours that he was "a control freak" during his time in Oasis, saying: "I was. I controlled them all the way to Wembley and Knebworth and all the way to the top of the charts. So, you're welcome."

Gallagher's next EP Songs From The Great White North will be released on 12" vinyl on April 21.
