has said that Liam Gallagher is a "good guy".
In October, the drummer released
a book titled Oasis: The Truth
about his time in the Britpop band before he was sacked after recording 'Some Might Say' in 1995.
Asked if he was still in contact with his former bandmates, McCarroll told StopCryingYourHeartOut
: "I haven't spoke to Noel or [bassist Paul] Guigs [McGuigan] since I left the band. I did bump into Noel at a Manchester City game recently but he fled as soon as he spotted me, which was a shame.
"I'd like to think we had both mellowed with time. [Guitarist Paul] Bonehead [Arthurs] is still a musical genius and we catch up every now and then. I last spoke to Liam at a Real People concert and as usual we had a proper roar. Liam is a good guy."
Asked if any of the group had read the book, he replied: "Funnily enough I bumped into Bonehead just before the book release. He was as peachy as ever and wished me well.
"Apparently Noel has read it and actually really enjoyed it. It seems he found most of it hilarious. It's good to see him taking that perspective. Everyone mellows with age or, in Noel's case, starts to thaw. Only joking!"
Of rumours of a big-screen adaptation of the book, McCaroll said: "A production company has spoken to me about filming the book. They are going to approach Noel for the rights to the music.
"I guess we'll see how much Noel likes the book when he replies. I was thinking maybe Leonardo Di Caprio all wigged up for me and definitely Craig Cash for Bonehead!"
