Speaking on Chris Evans’ show on BBC Radio 2 this morning, where he announced that he’d be performing at Glastonbury 2017, Liam Gallagher talked about Oasis reunion – saying that Noel would refuse, and attacked his brother for not performing at the One Love Manchester tribute concert.
“Oasis, that’s done mate,” said Liam. “That’s done and has been done for a long, long time. Regardless of what happened over the weekend or whatever – Noel Gallagher doesn’t want it. Full stop. He’s quite happy doing his stuff. He doesn’t want to have to entertain me because he knows I won’t stand for his stuff. Do you know what I mean?”
“He wants to surround himself with little yes men that he can hire and fire whenever he wants, but he’s not getting that with me. It doesn’t matter about me digging him out or underlining the lack of empathy and sympathy that he has for people in Manchester. That’s got nothing to do with it. Oasis is done.”
Liam continued: “I didn’t want the band to split up in the first place. He’s made out like something really terrible has happened. He wanted to end because he wanted to go solo. I don’t know why people can’t get that into their heads. I’d do it, but it ain’t happening. Every time I say I’d do it, it sounds like I’m desperate for it. I’ve got this coming out now, the songs are absolutely stomping.”
When it was put to Liam that the two brothers actually get on well behind the scenes and their feud is all for show, he answered: “A lot of people think that man, but I wouldn’t put my mum through that. It is the real deal. We’re not fond of each other. He’s the middle child and I came along and just spoiled the party.”
“Also, I’m better looking, a better singer, I’m just cooler all round. You’d have to ask him. I don’t know what his problem is, but he’s milking it mate.”
