I CHEW, NOEL; capaldi calls for an end of star wars with gallagher CONELewis wants to make music with Oasis legend.


LEWIS Capadli has admitted Noel Gallagher has to keep slagging him so he can continue with his outlandish stage entrances.

Speaking exclusively to the Daily Record ahead of last night's performance at TRNSMT, the Bathgate singer spoke about his online spat with the former Oasis member.

Last week, Noel said of Lewis: "Chewbacca should enjoy his 15 minutes of fame." In response, the Scots chart-topper changed his Twitter name to "Chewis Capaldi".

He took the spat a step further yesterday by walking on stage wearing a mask of Star Wars wookiee Chewbacca and then performed Oasis hit Don't Look Back in Anger.

Laughing before his set, he told us: "I think it's hilarious Noel is taking the p**s out of me and Liam getting involved is mental - a three-way chat with them.

"I need him to slag me every show so I have an entrance like Chewbacca tonight."

But he offered Noel an olive branch by suggesting the pair team up for a new song.

Lewis said: "I'd love for me and him to get in there. He doesn't like co-writes but he can write it and I'll sing it and I'm sure it will be a lovely one. If he is out there and he is listening, I love you to bits, Noel. Love you, Noel. That's my message to Noel. I love you." In a touching moment, Lewis dedicated his No1 hit Someone You Loved to tragic teen Robbie McArthur.

The 18-year-old, from Lochgelly in Fife, took his own life in May and the song was played at his funeral.

Robbie's family and friends launched an bid to get Lewis to sing the song during his set.

His mum Carmen Duff wrote to him on Instagram saying: "I'm hoping you would do me the honour of giving my son Robbie McArthur a massive shout out at TRNSMT on Sunday before you sing Someone You Loved. I recently lost Robbie to suicide and your song was what I chose for his funeral."

After Lewis sang the song, Carmen's friends Bryan and Pamela Wilson thanked him on Facebook. They wrote: "First time in nine weeks I've heard my bestie as happy as that."

Yesterday was also a homecoming for Emeli Sande. The Aberdeenshire singer said before performing: "Every time I perform here I feel such a warm welcome."

George Ezra brough the weekend extravaganza to a close as headliner.
