Liam Gallagher has revealed that the Foo Fighters really want to collaborate with him.
Speaking to NME, the former Oasis man – who was crowned Godlike Genius at this week’s VO5 NME Awards – revealed that the Dave Grohl-fronted group are desperate to get in the studio with him.
“They keep texting me, man,” he tells NME writer Jordan Bassett in this week’s cover story. “They wanted to do one tune, but I dunno – I’ll do it one day, but I’m too busy doing this at the moment. But I do like them – I think Foo Fighters have got good tunes. I think Dave Grohl’s very talented, and so is the band.”
It follows a year of on-stage collaborations between the two rock behemoths, with Liam Gallagher joining the Foos on-stage at their CalJam festival, to perform a cover of The Beatles’ ‘Come Together’. It was also revealed that Dave Grohl invited Liam on-stage at Glastonbury last year.
Back in 2016, Foo Fighters drummer Taylor Hawkins raved about the singer.
“I’ll tell you something about Liam Gallagher,” Hawkins told NME. “That guy is such a fucking good rock good singer. When people talk about Freddie Mercury, they’re like ‘Oh my god, he’s so outrageous’ – a lot of people just skip past the actual thing of what it is that made them great. I watched that Oasis documentary [Supersonic] the other day, and there’s this part were he just sings ‘Champagne Supernova’ in one take in its entirety, and you just go ‘oh fuck’, you know, the reason we all liked him in the first place is because he’s a fucking good singer. He can fucking sing a rock ‘n’ roll song dude.”
Hawkins continued: “I hope him and his brother can get their shit together. I mean come on boys, everyone wants to see Oasis again, give us a break – come on!”
