McGee: 'Oasis will come back for mega-bucks'

3 October 2013 Last updated at 09:15 BST

Alan McGee made his name and fortune by signing what was then an unknown band from Manchester called Oasis.

Collectively, their albums sold tens of millions of copies and made Creation - McGee's record label - famous.

He became a face of Britpop and a regular at No 10 - but financial problems led to McGee selling his company and personal problems led to issues with drink and drugs.

Now the 53-year-old Glaswegian is back, with a new label and a new life and still has plenty to say about the industry.

Reflecting on the future of Oasis, McGee told the BBC's arts editor, Will Gompertz: "Oasis will come back at some point... if they get back together it will be for a mega-bucks tour."

First broadcast on BBC Radio 4's Today programme on Thursday 3 October 2013.
