Liam Gallagher has claimed Oasis should have split up earlier, before things got ugly last summer.
The 37-year-old, who fronted the band with brother Noel since they formed in 1991, continues to make music with the band members Andy Bell and Gem Archer after Noel wanted out last August.
He said the break was necessary, telling XFM DJ Dave Berry: "I think it's a good thing, in hindsight - maybe we should have done it earlier but I still think we could have made some great music, but we couldn't have got any bigger."
Liam went on: "If I weren't keeping myself busy, I'd be sitting around sort of picking at things and being bitter. But now that things are going on, I think it's a good thing."
The Mancunian singer wants Oasis to win the Brits Album Of 30 Years gong for (What's The Story) Morning Glory?, so that he gets to party.
"I hope people vote for us to win the best album of the past 30 years because I want to go, I want to have a night out," he continued.
"It would close the Oasis thing for me if we won and I could thank the fans. So get voting, or don't, and I'll stay in and play the Beatles. Either way I'll have a blinding night."
