br /> Starkey, the son of Beatles legend Ringo Starr, said many drummers regular say they could play with Oasis with one hand tied behind their back.

However, he insisted that playing with Liam and Noel Gallagher is just as musically challenging as playing with The Who - as he has also hit the sticks for Daltrey and co for many years.

"Liam, Noel, Gem and Andy are some of the smartest musicians I've ever met," Starkey told Rhythm magazine.

"Those lads are on it and that's why they're massive."

He added that Oasis are the "most inspiring" band he has ever worked with.

Starkey began playing with the group back in 2004 following the departure of Alan White, appearing on the Don't Believe the Truth album and playing on their 2005/06 world tour.
