Noel Gallagher has launched a scathing attack on Live 8, saying it is a waste of time.
The Oasis star maintains that next week's extravaganza is a pointless exercise that won't help ease world debt because politicians won't listen.
He said: "Correct me if I am wrong, but are they hoping that one of these guys from the G8 is going to see Annie Lennox singing 'Sweet Dreams' and think, 'f-me, she might have a point there'. Or Keane doing 'Somewhere Only We Know' and some Japanese businessman looks at him and says 'we should really drop that debt, you know'. It isn't going to happen is it?" (ANANOVA)
