Richard Ashcroft Wants To Make A Musical With Oasis About Their Debauched Youth

Richard Ashcroft wants to make a musical with former Oasis rockers Liam and Noel Gallagher about their younger days.

The 44-year-old rocker has been toying with the idea of writing a production, which would feature a mix of songs from the Some Might Say hitmakers and his own band The Verve and chronicle the bands’ respective careers.

Ashcroft, who inspired Oasis’ song Cast No Shadow, was told guitarist Noel Gallagher was keen to work with him and that’s how the idea came about.

Ashcroft, above, told the Noisey website: “It’s a real nice compliment for me for Noel to say that.

“I would love to do a musical with them both. I’d like to do a musical of Verve songs combined with Oasis songs in a story of both our youths and the combination at the end and the fact that we have crossed paths, been mates and looked after each other.”

The Bitter Sweet Sympathy singer has been weighing up the positives and negatives of working with both Noel and his brother Liam, below, who have been bitter rivals since Oasis split in 2009, but said a collaboration of any kind would be “great” and bring in lots of money.

Asked what it would be like if they teamed up, Ashcroft addeed: “The pros are that Noel is an amazing songwriter. So if I get 50 per cent on the publishing royalties then it’s obviously cha-ching for both of us.

“I’m an amazing lyricist and I’ve got incredible melodies so the combo is great.

“There’s also a lot of pros working with Liam, but there’s a lot of negatives working with either of them and not working with the other one. It’s like being a brother in the middle.”
