Noel Gallagher has revealed he is enjoying being bored after splitting from Oasis.

The swaggering Mancunian is in no hurry to record solo material since his fall out with younger brother and former bandmate Liam, as he is enjoying doing nothing.

Noel told The Sun he hadn't played the guitar in months, adding: "It's good to be bored - for me to be bored is nice.

"Just to stare out of my window or wonder if I should arrange my CDs, wonder if I should count all the spare change in the whisky bottle.

"Should I go out and see what that new pear cider tastes like? There's plenty of stuff I could be getting on with."

The 43-year-old musician has just become a father again this month to son Sonny, but revealed his top priority is currently getting a suite named after him at a top Manchester hotel.

He said: "I stayed at the Radisson in town and they had a Peter Saville suite.

"I asked the woman why they had it and she told me that anybody who was Mancunian and stayed over 100 nights with them, they name a suite after.

"I thought to myself 'Really, right you'd better watch this then.'"
