Liam Gallagher on the first album he bought

Liam Gallagher has spoken to BBC Radio 6 about the first album he bought.

He said “The first band that I ever really got into was the Roses and the first record I bought was probably The Stone Roses [debut album], I know a lot of people will go, ‘Yeah liar! It was Whitney Houston’ or something like that, but it wasn’t,” the singer-songwriter promises. “I think [I first bought] The Stone Roses’ first album. That was round about the first time I was digging music… That album changed my life, it was my blueprint to music…

“The first tune I remember was ‘I Wanna Be Adored’. I think I was still in school and I remember my mate going: ‘You’ve got to check this band out.’ I thought it was ‘I Wanna Be A Dog’ and obviously I was like, ‘That’s a strange title and that’, but anyway I got into The Roses and that was it. It sent me on my way.”
