Liam Gallagher insists it's his brother Noel Gallagher who is preventing an Oasis reunion.
The 44-year-old singer and his 49-year-old sibling have barely spoken since Noel quit the band in 2009 following a huge backstage bust-up between the pair.
Since then, they have engaged in a war of words in interviews and on social media but Liam is adamant it is not his Twitter jibes that are stopping them reforming but Noel's desire to be a solo artist.
Taking part in a Q&A with Johnny Vaughan at Manchester City's Etihad Stadium for Radio X, the 'Songbird' songwriter was asked to get Oasis back together.
To which Liam replied: "This is a serious question and I'm not bringing the mood down. Our kid's (Noel's) going around like I've stabbed his f***ing cat. He wants to be in a solo band. If people think me having a dig on Twitter is what's stopping the band getting back together, they're mad. If they want the band to get back together they'll have to ask our kid. It's down to our kid."
Liam has accepted that Oasis aren't going to reunite any time soon and so is currently recording his first solo album, signing a deal with Warner Music and is expected to release the LP next summer.
The musician - who formed Beady Eye in the wake of Oasis' break-up before calling time on the group in 2014 - is excited to bring out his own collection of songs but insists there's nothing better than being in a rock 'n' roll band.
He said: "You can do your solo records, you can be wherever you want, but when you're in a band and you're playing your music to four, three geezers playing back to you, there's no better feeling."
Liam was taking part in the event - which sold out in a matter of minutes - to raise money for Global's Make Some Noise charity.
Make Some Noise - which was created in 2014 - aims to help British youngsters and their families cope with illness, disability or lack of opportunity.
