Liam and Noel Gallagher came to face to face at George Michael party three years after Oasis split.
According to Michael’s friend and collaborator David Austin, an unplanned meeting between the brothers at the late pop icon’s house was very “amicable”.
In occasion of the screening of the new George Michael Freedom Uncut documentary, David spoke to Radio X about that night.
“Before the Olympics, actually, because Liam lives in the same area as we do in North London, he used to tell people with (1990 George Michael song) Praying For Time, ‘Yeah man, there’s Lennon in that song.'”
“We kind of knew that and played that show down at the Olympics, went back to the house.”
Austin continued: “He just kind of rocked up – I think he was with Beady Eye at the time. They came to the house and there was a bit of hoo-ha because Noel was there and they hadn’t seen each other for quite a while. Well, they hadn’t seen each other at all.”
As the story goes, George Michael’s personal assistant was concerned about the ramifications of having the warring brothers under one roof, but she needn’t have worried.
Austin recalled: “I remember George’s PA was going, ‘We’ve got Liam at the front door, are we gonna let him in?’ Yeah of course, f****** hell, open the door and bring him in.'”
“And they got on like a house on fire actually, very amicable, down the end of the garden at the bar. That was the beginning of the Liam (appearing on the documentary) thing.”
