Noel: Brand miserable after booze with Mozza
FORMER Oasis star Noel Gallagher has revealed he tried to get Russell Brand DRUNK during a boozy bash with pop miserablist Morrissey.
The 47-year-old said the bizarre encounter took place last year when he met Russell in Los Angeles.
Noel said: “I was in LA on holiday, and Russell came by. He goes, ‘What are you doing tonight? I was with Morrissey last night, and he wants to go for a drink’.
“So Russell’s texting him and Morrissey’s texting back, saying ‘Tell him to bring his credit card’.
“I told him I was up for it but didn’t want to keep my wife awake, so I want to be home by two o’clock.
“And he says: ‘Two? I can’t handle Morrissey for more than 30 minutes. He’s f**king mental!’”
Noel and the ex-Smiths singer, 55, then went on a wild all-night bender – but recovering alcoholic Russell didn’t get involved.
He continued: “Morrissey was f**king hilarious. We were drunk off champagne, and Russell, who doesn’t drink, was really miserable.”
