Noel Gallagher - Noel Gallagher fishes for hits

Noel Gallagher compares writing songs to going fishing.

The 'Everybody's On The Run' singer views the songwriting process as completely unpredictable and after almost 20 years in the music business he compares his guitar to a fishing rod searching for a big catch.

He said: ''I refer to it (songwriting) as going fishing. There are songs and they're all just flowing through the river of life, and your guitar is a fishing rod and some days you get a catch, some days you don't.''

The former Oasis guitarist is planning to take a break from music following a year on the road touring his hit debut solo album 'Noel Gallagher's High Flying Birds'.

Noel will only head back in the studio when he is bored of his wife Sarah MacDonald's moaning or he suddenly feels inspired.

The musician - who has two sons, Donovan, five, and Sonny, two, with Sara - said: ''I like to get as far away from it as possible when I've finished touring because it's so full on, not just the gigs, but all the other stuff around it.

''I don't know when I'll next write, it will either come from some kind of creative call from somewhere, or it will be the elbow from the wife. Which it was last time. You know, you get that over breakfast, 'When are you going to go back in the studio?' I'll wait for the nudge from Sara.''
