Noel Gallagher wants his two sons to form a band and said he would encourage them to be like Oasis.

Speaking at the Q awards, the founder of the Britpop icons said he would not discourage his sons Donovan (8) and Sonny (5) from following in his footsteps.

"No, because we were f**king great. I don't know if you heard but we sold like 70 million fucking albums" he said.

However, Gallagher said he won't be teaching his kids how to play guitar.

"I can't teach anyone because I just kind of magicked it up.

"So my lad has got a drum kit in his bedroom and a guitar, I don't know what he's trying to do fu**ing at both of them at the same time or something.

"He's also left-handed, which is slightly annoying," he said.

Gallagher said if musical instruments are "lying around the house" children are more likely to pick them up.

"I don't say, 'guitar lessons today from three until quarter past'. If they do it they do it, and if they don't they don't.," he added.

He also admitted that his sons are more interested in hip-hop than his music.

''They're not listening to me that's for sure. They listen to a lot of hip hop which is lightly annoying.

"They listen to what they're mum listens to and she's kind of urban as well. Hip-hop hasn't grown on me, to be honest," he said.
