Ex Oasis guitarist Paul 'Bonehead' Arthurs says Liam Gallagher's teasing tweets last night (April 24) may have been posted simply because the former bandmates went out for a drink together.

Liam Gallagher last night slowly spelled out the word 'Oasis', letter by letter, on his Twitter account. He followed that with a tweet reading "OASIS LG". It fuelled speculation that the band may be reuniting, and led some bookmakers to suspend odds on the band headlining Glastonbury.

Bonehead, pictured in his duo Parlour Flames, spent the night drinking with Gallagher, but says that the tweets were not mentioned at all during their conversation. In fact, he this morning (April 25) claimed not to know that Gallagher had communicated anything with fans. "What did he tweet, was it regarding fig rolls or something? There were no fig rolls involved officer," he said, referencing an old tweet of Gallagher's included in our blog.

Asked what Gallagher's tweets could have meant, Bonehead said: "Probably the fact that I texted him going, ‘Meet me in the beer garden’. That probably rattled his cage. Maybe that. I don’t know though, because I meet him every fucking month. Maybe he’s just reminiscing."

Bonehead then took to his own Twitter account to spell out the word "PUB".
