Speaking to NME, Gallagher broke down his relationship with Michael.

"I wouldn't say I was friends with him...I met him a few times and he was a fantastic chap."

In the interview, Gallagher recalls partying with Michael after a show in Bournemouth, or not, as the case may have been.

"He came to see us in Bournemouth once, and was down the front of the gig... he took a pill and wanted to come to the after-show party. We were like, 'Not having one,' 'cos we had a gig the next day. He was off his box on these pills with no party to go to. So he got on a bus and ended up in Coventry or something."

The anti-party came up again when Gallagher ran into Michael backstage at the London 2012 Olympics.

"His mate turns around and goes, 'Oh, George said he met you before in Bournemouth, we were in a hotel room with three bananas,' and I was going, 'This f**king story sounds a bit f**king dodgy, f**king George Michael and three bananas? and he went 'Bananarama!' He was knocking about with them at that time."

Gallagher also commented on Michael's death and the impact it had on the community where they both lived.

"There's like a shrine now. I see it when I go for a run. It's nice, but s**t, if you know what I mean."
