Star opens up about mystery illness and ‘dropping dead in the street’


While rock star Noel Gallagher wasn't exactly known for his tame ways back in his heyday, we're still surprised to learn that the former Oasis frontman wasn't in the fullness of health recently.

The 47-year-old musician opened up about his medical struggles in a recent interview with The Telegraph, but refused to disclose specific details when pressed.

Talking about a trip to the doctors, the dad-of-three was advised by professionals that neglecting to take certain medication would have a catastrophic effect on his health.

Deciding only to divulge certain information, the frontman for Noel Gallgher's High Flying Birds  said: "Honest to God I felt all right when I went in, and the doctor made me feel like I was about to drop dead in the street when I came out."

The star then went on to explain that he had injured himself on a family holiday, saying: " Then my doctor put me on these tablets – I won’t tell you what for [and] told me that if I didn’t take them I would virtually drop dead. I was taking them for months and they made me feel awful."

Deciding to go against the doctor's wishes, the acclaimed musician took himself off the medication and insists that he's feeling better as a result.

We're glad to hear it, but do look after yourself Noel!
