Liam Gallagher says son Gene is desperate to start a band

Liam says "he’s on the look out for band members."

Liam Gallagher has revealed that his son Gene is keen to start a band.

Gene, 16, the son of Gallagher and Nicole Appleton, is still in school, but apparently wants to follow in his father’s footsteps.

Asked why Gene and his older brother Lennon, 18, aren’t joining their father on his current tour of Australia, Liam told Herald Sun: “They’re still in school. I’m kinda in trouble at the moment for bringing them out of school on tour. I did offer to bring them out, but I think travelling to Australia is just a little bit too far for their little brains. They’ll regret it man.”

“Lennon does a bit of modelling for whoever, he does stuff in New York,” Liam also told the newspaper. “Gene’s still in sixth form but he’s desperate to be in a band. He plays guitar and drums, he’s on the look out for band members.”

Asked what his voice is like, Liam replied: “I’ve not heard him sing, but he’s got the attitude and the look for sure. He’s a good little guitar player, he’s better than me. I mean, I can’t play, but he’s good.”

Liam and brother Noel Gallagher reportedly ended their long-standing feud just in time for Christmas, with Liam claiming that Noel had “reached out” to him and that they were “all good again”.

Asked whether their reconciliation could lead to a potential Oasis reunion, Liam recently said: “God no, no. Oasis isn’t getting back together, not at all. I’m doing my thing, [Noel’s] doing his thing and that is the end of it.”

Instead, Liam said that the pair are simply not “slagging” each other off any more, calling a “truce”: “It’s still the same – it’s just that I’ve called a truce on it and he’s called a truce on it and no more slagging.”
