Roger Daltrey wishes Oasis would get back together.

The Who frontman took part in a conversation with Yungblud for Rolling Stone and talked about everything from his onstage advice to the Manchester band.

Recalling the time Liam Gallagher supported The Who in America, he said: "We did a gig in Paris, and it was [115 degrees] in the audience. Liam Gallagher was there at this gig in a tent in Paris, and dear Liam is standing in the audience in a bloody anorak. He’s the coolest dude, I love him to bits."

The My Generation singer added: "He’s just got an edge, and I wish [Oasis] would just get back together."

Despite wanting Liam to bury the hatchet with his older brother Noel, he praised the rocker's solo career and commended his presence and honesty.

"Liam, though, has really carved out a niche for himself now, and I love him, the legendary rocker admited. "I think he’s fabulous. He’s totally honest. He’s not frightened of saying how he feels."

Though there's no doubt that Roger Daltrey's sentiments are shared among many Oasis fans out there, the chances of the band reuniting are looking less likely than ever.

Asked about an Oasis reunion on Pub Talk, Noel replied: "Would you go on holiday with your ex-missus?"

He went on: “As funny as this sounds. Oasis sell as many records now per year as we did when we were together. We’re as popular now in the eyes of the people as we ever were. And I’m happy with it."

The Ballad of the Mighty I singer added: "If we got back together, it would be a circus and there's no point. "Leave it as it is. I'm happy."

Despite Liam claiming he doesn't know what his older brother is up to, Noel was happy to acknowledge his brother's recent mammoth gigs.

"He's doing his thing," Noel admitted. "He's still f***ing selling out Knebworth. It's like, mate. Good luck to you. Good luck to you."
