He's a lot calmer on the road...
The Sun spoke with Jake Bugg about touring with Noel Gallagher. Bugg is supporting Gallagher on all of his dates in Europe. He says that Gallagher does not party while on the road.
He said: "Noel is looking after himself, making sure he has plenty of rest and stuff. We've had a couple of drinks, but not too many though as obviously as we're on the road and have to try and be healthy. We have to make sure we get enough sleep, get practice in and don't ruin our voices."
When asked if Noel's wild days are behind him, he said: "I'd say so."
He also said that he would rather sleep in a tour van bed than a fancy hotel. He said: "We're in a little van at the moment. We're not spending loads. We don't want to look like we're bigger than we are."
He admitted that he is surprised by how much his career has grown in the past year. After his tour with Gallagher, he will go to the US with Snow Patrol. He added: "It's a dream come true. I was a big Oasis fan and Noel is a great songwriter so it's obviously brilliant to be on tour with him. I've played at some amazing places and some of the gigs have been the biggest I've done. I am looking forward to going to the States, especially all the inland States and cities. And to go with Snow Patrol is incredible."
