Noel Gallagher Claims Rock Stardom Will Go Extinct, Apparently Hasn't Heard of Other Forms of Stardom

Aw, look: Another one of Oasis' Gallagher brothers uttered a statement that managed to be arrogant, ignorant, and fuddy-duddy all at the same time!

This time it was the elder (and usually saner) one, Noel, speaking to the U.K.'s Sunday Express about the impending die-off of that rare and vital species, the Rock Star:

Rock stardom will die because nobody will make enough money any more to be rock stars. Everybody will be jobbing musicians. It's unbelievable. The music industry has changed beyond all recognition. The music business we signed in to does not exist any more.

Pity the poor rock star! How will our cultural ecosystem recover? Who will we get to trash hotel rooms? And sleep with multiple groupies at the same time? And release bloated records that only sound good if you've been doing coke for three years straight?

Oh, that's right: DJs, pop stars, and rappers.
