Noel Gallagher is taking time off from Noel Gallagher's High Flying Birds in 2013 because he doesn't want to "f**k it up" like Oasis did

Noel Gallagher is taking a "well earned" break from music.

The 45-year-old rocker - who parted ways with Oasis in 2009 - wants to take time out from his solo project Noel Gallagher's High Flying Birds in 2013 because he doesn't want to mess up his own musical "brilliance" like Oasis did with their third album.

Speaking on XFM radio station, Noel quipped: "I'm taking a well earned break after this. Why mess with brilliance? I'd only f**k it up.

"Look what it did to the aftermath of '(What's The Story) Morning Glory?'. S**t on it! 'Be Here Now'?"

Oasis' third album 'Be Here Now' is often regarded as their worst by music critics and the outspoken star has previously blasted his own effort, describing the LP as "the sound of a bunch of guys, on coke, in the studio, not giving a f**k.

He continued: "All the songs are really long and all the lyrics are s**t and for every millisecond Liam is not saying a word, there's a f*****g guitar riff in there in 'Wayne's World' stylie."

However, the 'AKA... What A Life' hitmaker wants to persevere with his new musical venture in the future because he much prefers being a solo artist to being in the band with his brother Liam.

When asked whether Oasis would ever reform, he recently said: "Not even if all the starving children in the world depended on it. I know it's the done thing these days and what people do, but it's not what I do."
