In a new interview, Gallagher shared a fond memory of a recent run-in with Blur bassist Alex James.

“I saw one of them the other night at some awards do,” said Gallaghre. “What’s the bass player called? Alex. He had a pair of shorts on. I think it was the first day back at school. They’re madder than us these days. He was completely off his fucking box.”

“I never had any problem with Blur,” he continued. “The rivalry was all a bit of a laugh for me. But you still wouldn’t catch me doing backing vocals for Damon Albarn.”

Liam also made headlines this week after blaming Noel for the bad reputation of their third album ‘Be Here Now‘.

Gallagher is currently celebrating after his debut solo album ‘As You Were‘ went straight in at No.1 and became the fastest-selling vinyl record of the last 20 years.

The album outsold the rest of the top 20 combined after shifting a massive 103,000 records in its first week.
