The artist used to drive the industry, but the industry reacted to Britpop, or whatever it was. And now bands go to the industry and go, ‘What is it you want again? OK, I can do that.’ But when we all came along – and it wasn’t by design, it was completely accidental – the industry took a step back and was like, ‘What the fuck is this? These people are all drug addicts and maniacs, they’re gonna fuck the fucking share prices up! We need to get rid of these people!’ If Oasis were starting tomorrow we would have nowhere near the impact, because you’re judged instantly on your first gig, and then Radio 1 will judge you on how many fucking followers you’ve got on Facebook. Oasis never had an A&R at Creation – we were given the fucking keys to the kingdom and they went, ‘Off you go, see you in a bit’. Now, the manager is accountable to the A&R guy, who’s accountable to the guy above him, who’s gonna lose his fucking job.
