Last summer Liam Gallagher thanked the NHS workers with a free gig at The O2.
And for this special event, he will recieve the Music Moment Of The Year gong at the BandLab NME Awards 2022.
“It’s a nice thing to do, but I don’t wanna be one of them Bob Geldofs, you know what I mean?” he says. “I’ll turn up cos it’s good craic and all that, but we should do something else with [the award].”
Doing that gig was important was very important for him because “no one else was doing it” and he wanted to give something back to the NHS workers.
“It was just a nice thing to do. My family, we’ve always relied on the NHS, so it was just a nice thing. I feel like a bit of a dick getting an award for it!”
At the beginning of 2022, Liam Gallagher hinted on Twitter there might be another award missing from his collection.
“So I’ve missed out on the NYs honours list AGAIN ffs what more do I have to do to get myself 1 of those SIR things oh well onwards and sideways LG x,”
Liam mimes someone reading the tweet:
“There’ll be some fucker there going” – using a posh accent – ‘Who does he think he is, scruffy little shit from Manchester thinking the Queen is gonna give him that?’”
He grins: “If I can wind some cunt up [on the] first of January, start as I mean to go on.”
In fact, Liam says he wouldn’t even accept a fancy title from the Monarchy:
“Unless they delivered it to my fucking door through the letterbox, like the Royal Mail fucking should do… I’m certainly not going there and bending down for no cunt. Not that I’m anti-Royals – I like the Queen. I think she’s like a little Jedi. She’s alright, man.”
