Blur's Dave Rowntree Says Fans Apologize For Mentioning Oasis Around Him
Posted by Joseph Lee on 02.03.2014
In an interview with XFM (via NME), Blur's Dave Rowntree said that people apologize to him when they mention Oasis in front of him. He introduced a performance of Oasis' "Stop Crying Your Heart" by saying people think he's "bitter" about the bands' rivalry.
He said: "When people around me inadvertently mention something to do with Oasis, or to do with something to do with Oasis, they generally turn to me and apologies. So if they say: 'I remember when I bought 'Roll With It', they go, 'Sorry Dave!' Or they say, 'I think the new Beady Eye single's quite good… Sorry Dave!'. So clearly people think that I'm still bitter about the battle of Britpop."
