Noel Gallagher says his brother Liam used the name Lou Cypher when Oasis were on tour.

According to the former guitarist and chief songwriter of the Manchester band, his younger brother chose the devilish name to avoid fans tracking them down at hotels while they were on tour.

As reported by Bang Showbiz, the Daily Star quotes Noel saying: “Like, he thought it was funny, right, to call himself Lou Cypher. Like Lucifer.

"Like, Ohhh! Lucifer. What you? With your f***ing hands behind your back, singing out of tune?

“Lucifer? I don’t f***ing think so mate. I mean, it’s not even funny.”
