Noel Gallagher had some crazy times in the '90s, and during a recent interview (via Independent), the former Oasis singer recalled being hospitalized after doing cocaine “every night in the 1990s,” which led to psychosis and “brutal panic attacks.”

“I did have to check into hospital once” he revealed. “Imagine having the psychosis and having to have to go to hospital. They don’t understand a word you’re saying because of your accent and you’re like ‘I think I am on my way out.’”

“I had a few brutal panic attacks, which is why I quit,” he added.

The 52-year-old has been clean since 1998 and now finds people on cocaine “boring.”

“You just know that when the coke comes out the night is going to take a s**t turn" he told the Irish Independent last year. “It’s always like fun and games and once someone gets the coke out then all of a sudden it’s, 'Well, it’s time for me to go anyway, because this is now boring.'”

A few weeks ago, Noel unearthed an old Oasis demo called "Don't Stop..." and shared it with the world. Though fans were happy, his brother and former bandmate Liam was not.

"They never asked me and they should have as its under oasis but I don’t expect anything else from those cowboys at ignition there snide C*NTZ," he tweeted about the track. He also called the release a "PR Stunt."

Liam was the one who recently expressed his urge to get Oasis back together to raise money for COVID-19 relief, but after these comments a reunion seems further away than ever.
