Former Oasis frontman talks about life away from music
Liam Gallagher has declared that he has “no friends” and he is a “lone wolf”.
The former Oasis frontman says he has cut ties with many of his friends and would rather spend time with his girlfriend and manager, Debbie Gwyther.
“I can count my friends on no hands. I don’t have any apart from Debbie. I do my own thing. I’m a lone wolf,” he told Q Magazine.
He also attributed Gwyther with “saving him” from a downward spiral.
“Debbie swooped me up as I was falling,” Gallagher added. “She just said, ‘Stop being a dickhead.’ She got me out of the house, introduced me to all kinds of people outside my world, got me doing new things. I’ve lived in London a long time, but I only really knew Hampstead. She took me to new places. I’ve been to Dalston, man.”
Describing his life in north London, Gallagher said: “It’s like [BBC Two comedy] Stella Street, round here: Jamie Oliver lives up the road. I got told off for throwing stones at his windows pissed-up, asking him to chuck down some bacon rolls.”
He also revealed details of his new fitness regime (“I run around seven miles every day, leaving about 5am. Unless I’ve been out on the sauce, then I’m getting in at 5am”) and becoming friends with his milkman (“He’s fucking top, he gave me a pint of lactose-free milk for nothing the other day”).
Gallagher appeared open to reuniting with brother Noel Gallagher, saying: “I believe Oasis will sail again and it’ll be glorious. If it’s really about the fans, Noel, let’s do it – because they want it. One year. Tour for a year. We’d smash it. My bags are still packed from my last tour, so I’m ready.”
He also accused his brother of having “small man syndrome”, saying: “Every fucking soundcheck he’d stand in the middle and sing.”
