Robbie Williams Opens Up On Oasis Feud: "I Wasn't Mod Enough For Them"

The 'Candy' singer reveals how his friendship with the Gallagher brothers quickly altered back in the 90s.

Robbie Williams has opened up on his famous feud with Oasis back in the 90s and said he was told he wasn't "mod enough" to stay friends with the band.

The 'Different' singer was seen hanging out with the band shortly after he quit Take That, but the new friendship then turned sour and became one of the biggest feuds in pop.

"Lad culture was a massive, massive thing. I love Oasis. I was a big fan of their music, vibe and energy," Robbie told The Sun. "I happened to know them and knock about with them for a little while. I don't think I was their cup of tea."

He continued: "At the time I think the exact words were 'I’m not mod', so I was sort of mates with them for a bit, then I didn’'t gel with them, so we stopped hanging out, simple as that."

Robbie famously challenged Liam to a fight on stage at the BRIT Awards back in 2000.

The 'Take The Crown' singer also spoke of his admiration for the band.

He said: "Liam's voice was the voice of a generation and Noel seemed to be writing the songs of a generation. They were our Beatles for around 18 months. 

"It was very, very exciting, high-octane stuff with various substances being taken left, right and centre, models, late night rock 'n' roll – all good fun!"

Meanwhile, Robbie is preparing to head back to the BRITs this month where he is nominated for Best British Single with Capital FM.

Robbie will also be performing at London's O2 Arena on 20th February alongside the likes of Justin Timberlake and Muse.
