Noel Gallagher is not known for holding back on his opinions, and his recent appearance on Absolute Radio – during which he detailed a very colourful exchange with Rolling Stones legend Keith Richards – was no exception.

The lead guitarist with nineties band Oasis was talking to Hometime presenters Andy Bush and Richie Firth about life in the music industry, including Irish rock band U2, Keith Richards and of course his brother Liam.

The Gallagher boys have had a tempestuous relationship ever since childhood, and even though Oasis broke up in 2009, the feud continues to this day with the pair barely speaking.

In their hayday the sibling rivalry, including Liam's high-profile outbursts, were as much as part of the band as its music.

And it seems like even rock n' roll royalty wanted to know more about the brothers' backbiting.

Remembering the first time he met rock legend Keith Richards in the Bahamas, Noel said: "So I go up to the bar and there is Keith Richards, looking exactly as you would imagine… He said, ‘one thing I’ve always wanted to ask you, who is the bigger c**t, your singer or mine.’"

Noel Gallagher didn't hold back on a recent radio programme

In true Gallagher style, Noel told the rock legend that "as your singer wrote some of the greatest lyrics of all time I’m going to say mine".

Regarding their rivalry, Noel has even weighed in on Megxit saying that he felt Prince William's pain about having a brother "shooting his f***ing mouth off".

The 54-year-old, who famously feuded with his brother Liam for years, appeared to sympathise with Prince Harry's older brother, calling the Duke's recent behaviour 'unnecessary'.

As reported in The Sun, Noel suggested that he actually saw himself 'as the William' of his family.

Noel explained why people didn't like Bono

Noel, who has been producing music with his solo project High Flying Birds for the last ten years, made the remarks after the Royal Family was criticised when Prince Harry openly spoke to Oprah Winfrey in multiple interviews about his experiences growing up.

“Prince William. I feel that f***ing lad’s pain," Noel told the publication.

“He’s got a f***ing younger brother shooting his f***ing mouth off with s*** that is just so unnecessary. I’d like to think I was always the William.”

The Wonderwall hitmaker's latest remarks came shortly after he was trolled on social media by his brother Liam.

Suggesting that the siblings are no closer to ending their bitter feud, Liam took aim at Noel on social media at the end of May.

Noel revealed the shocking question Keith Richards asked him

At the time, Noel posted a short video of himself holding a sign that read: "Ask me anything about the last ten years" before screwing up the paper in the clip and throwing it to the camera.

While he was inviting fans to send him questions they would like answered, one comment certainly stood out from the Twitter messages.

Proving that there is no love lost, Liam typed: "Why you such a massive c***?"

During the radio show, Keith Richards wasn't the only celebrity to get the Gallagher treatment with U2 frontman Bono also flying onto Noel's radar.

Referring to the band's famous Joshua Tree album he said: "I get a bit frustrated when people are like ‘I don’t like U2’, and I’m like no, what you are saying is you don’t like Bono."

When asked why the legend was so divisive Noel mused: “I’ve said this to him, so I’ll say it to you, nobody likes a do-gooder, nobody likes it. That’s why people like me, I’m a do-badder.”
