Noel Gallagher most overrated songwriter ever: Steve Earle

Press Trust of India  |  London 

Veteran singer Steve Earle has slammed Noel Gallagher, saying the Oasis' lead vocalist is "the most overrated songwriter" in the history of pop music.

Earle, 62, has called out Gallagher's lyrical ability as he said the British rock band got famous in the '90s because they "behaved badly".

"I dislike Man City because it is Oasis's club. Noel Gallagher is the most overrated songwriter in the whole history of pop music. They were perfect for the Brit press because they behaved badly and got all the attention," Earle told The Guardian.

The rocker, however, praised another English rock band Blur and its singer Damon Albarn, saying they were "really great".
