Rocker Noel Gallagher has slammed fans of his band - deeming Oasis devotees "dopey".

The DON'T LOOK BACK IN ANGER hitmaker hates being approached by fans who are unprepared to meet him or can't work a camera properly.

He moans, "I don't like having my picture taken with them because half our fans are too dopey to use a camera. I've already wasted hours of my life on idiots with cameras in their hands who can't even work the flash.

"Then there are the ones that come to you and say 'Can I have your autograph?' You say, 'Yeah, go on then', then you get, 'I haven't got a pen.' Well, you know, that's like turning up for a football match with no boots.

"I do get upset when people give me bus tickets to sign. I don't mind album covers, but if you're gonna come up with a bit of fag (cigarette) packet and ask me to sign it, I'll tell you to go and buy an album."
