Noel Gallagher is on an indefinite leave from music
The former Oasis frontman has just finished touring his debut album with NoelGallagher`s High Flying Birds around the world, and plans to take it easy for a while.
He said: "I`m going to take voluntary redundancy and maybe grow a couple of beards. I like to get as far away from it as possible when I finish touring because it`s so full on when you`re doing it. There`s not just only the gigs, there`s all the other stuff that goes around it."
The 45-year-old `If I Had a Gun` star won`t return to music until inspiration strikes, or wife Sara MacDonald, 40, pushes him to get back to work.
He added: "I don`t know when it will be, but you just wait for some kind of call from somewhere - creative call or whether it be the elbow from the wife, which it was last time. `Get out the house, man`. She didn`t say it in as many words but that`s what she meant."
