Ronson slams Noel

Mark Ronson has responded to snide remarks that Noel Gallagher made about him in recent Radio 1 interview.

As well as criticising Kaiser Chiefs, Scouting For Girls and Amy Winehouse on Chris Moyles' breakfast show, Gallagher said Ronson "needs to learn three chords on the guitar and write a tune, instead of ruining everyone else's".

However, Ronson – who has produced both Winehouse and the Kaiser Chiefs – had a few words to say on the subject on his MySpace blog.

"Noel Gallagher said I should 'learn three chords on the guitar and go write a tune'," he wrote.

"So I just wanted him to know that I'm actually taking guitar lessons from Jay-Z right now and he's already taught me both chords to Wonderwall."

He added that he also wrote a song called Back To Black, which "has seven chords in it."

Gallagher caused controversy earlier this year when he said that Jay-Z and hip hop had no rightful place at the Glastonbury Festival.
