Noel Gallagher—who recently said he’s lost “a f–king shitload of money” since Oasis split and, in potentially related news, advised One Direction’s Zayn Malik to “f–kin’ get a good accountant because life is very f–kin’ long”—is back with more colorful insights about the rock world.

Rock critic and editor of The Quietus John Doran interviewed Gallagher for Noisey’s The British Masters series and asked him who could drink more: Morrissey, Bono, or Primal Scream’s Bobby Gillespie. Gallagher responded with a predictably entertaining answer:

Bono, hands down. Bobby don’t drink. Morrissey is good crack. He can drink, and remains—doesn’t really get drunk though—he remains equally as vicious from the f—king minute you meet him until seven hours later. I lighten up once I’ve had a drink. Not Morrissey.

But Bono, he is really f—king brilliant company. I’ve been drinking with him, and I’ve been leaving a bar at 6 in the morning and he’s on the bar singing opera. And he’s got a f—king gig the following night with 70,000 people. And I’m being escorted out like James Brown—f—king pissed.
