Quotes From Liam Gallagher And John Squire's Interview With The SundayTimes

Some quotes from an interview with Liam Gallagher and John Squire in the Sunday Times.

Liam Gallagher on the album track 'Mother Nature’s Song'.

“When you’re younger you don’t give a f*** about nature, do you? Go for a walk? F*** off mate. I’ll walk to the pub, stagger home, and that is it. But you get older and think: how lucky we are to be in this wonderful world. I’ve got a dog and now I’m always in the woods, wandering about like little… what are they called?” 

Interviewer: Hobbits? 

Liam: “No, not f***ing hobbits. Little Red Riding Hood, But I don’t listen to Mother Nature’s Song and go, ‘Oh my God, I’ve got to hug a tree.’ ” 

Liam Gallagher on how he viewed the average music fan when he was 15.

“I always thought the guy walking around the streets with a guitar was a bit of a f***ing creep, to be honest, We’d be out playing football and there was always one geezer in a leather jacket, some mad hairdo and skintight jeans, and I’d be going, ‘Who the f*** is that weirdo?’ Then I saw the Roses and it all changed.”

Liam on watching the Stones Roses in Manchester.

“Had a couple of beers, had a couple of spliffs, went down the front and thought, you know what? They’re up there playing music and they’re dressed like us: jeans, trainers, little jackets. You don’t have to look like the guy from the Cure. It was my epiphany. The following morning I didn’t remember a f***ing thing about the gig, but I thought: that’s what I want to do with my life.”

John Squire on not recording new material with the Stone Roses.

“We did two new songs in 2016, but the spark wasn’t there,”

John on the Stone Roses reunion.

“People change, relationships change. Being in a band is like a marriage and a lot of marriages fail. When it works it is because you are in the right place at the right time, with the right people at the right stage in their lives. It can’t remain that way for ever.” 

On Noel Noel Gallagher last year that he would be prepared to consider a reunion if Liam called him,

“He knows I’m not going to call him, He’s the one who split the band up, so he’ll be doing the calling, and if there is no calling we won’t be getting back together. To be fair, though, I can see it happening. Now things have changed in his personal life I can see him looking back, not looking back in anger, and going, ‘Do you know what? I was really mean to my little brother. Now it is time for me to send him a box of chocolates.’ ”

Interviewer: Are you saying, I ask, that if Noel should turn up with a box of Milk Tray, the greatest band of the Nineties will be back among us? 

Liam: “Oh, without a doubt. I love my brother, I love my family, and all that Oasis shit, there was no need for it, you know what I mean? Maybe someone can get a bit tetchy on tour. Maybe someone drinks a bit too much. But we didn’t have to split up over it. I don’t hold grudges, man, and if Oasis got back together it would be great because I would only have to sing 15 songs and he could do the rest. I could do that standing on me head.” 

“That was my band and that was all I knew. I lived and breathed it, so once it was gone I was like, who the f*** am I, really? Everyone knows me as that guy from Oasis. If that’s not there any more I’m just a hollow f***ing wandering dude from the Nineties. But you move on. Life is just one big conveyor belt, innit?”

Liam on playing around the corner from his house on tour.

“We’re playing the Forum, round the corner from my house, so when John starts off on [a solo] I’ll be nipping off to have a shave, a bath, a change of clothes, a little drink, and I’ll come back and he’ll still be there, making love to his guitar.”
