Liam Gallagher has made a peace offer to his brother Noel, admitting that he wants to repair their relationship for the sake of their mother.
In an interview with The Sunday Times, Liam said: “Obviously [our mum would] like us to be chatting, sit around the table at Christmas. But it’s a stupid standoff, and we should know better, as we have kids. It would be nice for me and [Noel] to get back together as brothers. But it’s good, the standoff. I’m enjoying it. I ain’t backing down. He ain’t backing down.”
“At least people are still talking about it. They’re obsessed,” he added. “There’s no harm in it. He says shit about me. I say shit about him. I have held the olive branch out, and there has been nothing, so there you go. Potato it is, mate.”
Liam continued to describe how Noel has changed because of fame and success.
“As much as i love [Noel], he definitely did change. I don’t care what anyone says,” Liam said.
“He’s not the first to have his ego rubbed, but he changed, mate. And obviously I don’t want to lose my brother. But you can sell loads of records, be loved – the main success is if you get out of it pretty much the same as you went in. You live in a different house. Drive a different car. But you don’t have to turn into a nob…You can see the clientele he hangs round with. He’s on the verge of turning into Sting, but I’m blind to the bullshit. I know I’m great. I was great before I joined the band.”
Lately, Liam also shared what he’d do if his kids attended one of Noel’s concerts.
“If I ever caught them at one of their gigs there’d be trouble. I’d stop their pocket money or I’d dish out loads of old photos of them with nappies full of shit and put that on the internet and say ‘Cop that, dickhead’. That’ll do it ‘cos they think they’re 16,17.”
Liam continued:”Who knows? It certainly wouldn’t be for money. I guess it would be nice to put it all to bed for me man’s sake. I miss hanging out with my brother. I fucking love him but at the same time he’s treated me like a bit of a c**t. We’re having a stand off, but it’s a funny one, we’re not putting in each other’s windows or messing with each other’s tires, trying to kill each other. He’s like ‘He can’t sing’. Fucking do one potato. It’s stupid and childish and we should know better, but we don’t.”
