Bonehead weighs up Oasis reunion

Oasis ahead of their Knebworth gig in 1999

Former Oasis guitarist Paul Arthurs has discussed the likelihood of the band reuniting.

The band split in 2009 amid reports of a feud between brothers Noel and Liam Gallagher. But there has been talk of a possible reunion in 2014 to mark the 20th anniversary of their debut album Definitely Maybe.

Paul - aka Bonehead - who quit the band in 1999, told NME magazine: "If someone said, 'Here's a field, here's a stage and here's 200,000 people,' I'm sure Liam would jump up and do it, and I don't think it would even take anyone offering him a massive bankroll of money. He'd do it because that's what he loves, that's his passion."

Bonehead recently joined Liam's new band Beady Eye at a tribute gig to the late Charlatans drummer Jon Brookes, where they performed a number of Oasis tracks.

But the guitarist admitted a reunion still looked unlikely as Noel is not keen

Bonehead said: "As far as Noel goes, I saw him in Glasgow with the High Flying Birds, but we didn't speak about reunions... With Noel, I only know what I read in the press, and from what I read it sounds like a 'no'."

Noel told Rolling Stone magazine last year: "We are split up. Yeah, so, ergo, band splits up, band is no more. There is no band. So, no, I won't be getting involved, anyway. If there is a reunion, I won't be in it."

Younger brother Liam confessed last year: "I'd do it for nowt, but if someone's going to drop a load of f***ing money, I'd do it for that too."
