Liam Gallagher On Oasis, Noel, Beady Eye, New Album And More

Liam Gallagher has given an interview to The Sunday Times that can be found here (Payment required or start a free trial).

Below are a number of quotes from the interview.

“That voice [in my head], which used to be very distant, saying, ‘Go to bed. You’re not going out tonight,’ is now very loud. I don’t want to feel shit any more.”

“I’m nearly 50, I want to have good times, not shit times. I’d love to get off my tits all the time, but I can’t handle it. And bills have to be paid.”

“I’ve been humbled, I’ve lost a few things, marriage break-ups and all that. You’ve just got to look in the mirror and remember that. There’s things I’m not proud of, I’ve messed up and done some stupid stuff.”

On the Downing Street parties “You can imagine Putin sitting there thinking, ‘Call that a party? Abba and a cheeseboard?’ We’re a laughing stock.”

On Oasis “I thought we’d be the Stones, doing it until the day we died. I went off the rails a bit when it happened, because it was the thing that glued my life together.”

On Noel “He just seems like a different person. It’s like he’s been abducted. But you know I love him. We split up nearly 13 years ago. We can go on about whose fault it is, but he’s his own man. If he wanted to get in contact, for my mum’s sake, he could do it, but he obviously doesn’t want to. There are only so many olive branches you can offer.” 

On his new album “It’s a bit peculiar in places, which is good: 80 per cent madness and 20 per cent classic. If you’re going to start doing stuff like that on your third album, it helps if there’s a bit of Covid about. Because if it doesn’t take off, and people go, ‘I’m not sure about this, it’s a bit weird,’ we can blame it on the virus and go back to the classic stuff.”

On Beady Eye “Beady Eye wasn’t happening, Noel’s thing was taking off, my marriage was breaking up, I had a kid in New York. I thought, ‘I’m in the shit here.’ I had to knuckle down, get my head together, sort my private life out. I thought, ‘I’m either going to end up sitting in the pub all day, not a pot to piss in and having ruined lots of people’s lives, or I can sort out my napper.’”
