Noel Gallagher is deliberately hiding from his brother and ex-Oasis bandmate, Liam.
Since Oasis split last August due to tensions between the guitarist and the volatile frontman, Noel said he's been going to great lengths to avoid a confrontation between them.
When asked why he wears his shoes at home by Talksport radio, Noel joked: "Well, I could have to run off at a moment's notice. Our kid might be passing. I might have to jump over the back fence and nip out through the local pub."
Noel - who is set to release a solo album, while Liam works on a new band - also revealed he is returning to the studio this week, to play drums for a mystery collaborator.
Although he wouldn't reveal the identity of the musician he's working with, he claimed to have "thrown up with him" in the past.
He told Talksport radio: "I'm playing drums this week on a session for someone else. I've thrown up with him at someone else's house."
The 42-year-old musician also said he's looking forward to comedian Russell Brand's upcoming wedding to pop star Katy Perry.
He said: "I have been invited and I'm going out on the stag do but I'm not going to be a best man or an usher.
"I believe he's going to come down the aisle on a flying carpet and the prenup is going to be brought in on an elephant."
