The Stone Roses refuse to comment on spat between band and Liam Gallagher
Plus former Oasis guitarist Bonehead says he 'doesn't believe a word' of tabloid reports
The Beady Eye man has made no secret of his love for the Manchester band and even supported them with his band when they played their mammoth Heaton Park shows last summer. But Gallagher apparently overstepped the mark during a recent incident in Dubai. A source told The Sun: "It's all gone a bit sour recently with Liam and The Roses. There was an ugly incident in Dubai when Liam said a few things that were totally out of order. It didn't go down well at all. Ian, John and Reni are all low-profile lads and don't subscribe to aggro of any sort."
The source added: "They were also getting a little bit pissed off with him ballooning on the side of the stage every time they played a gig. He had to be escorted off at one show and put behind the mixing desk because he was making such a scene. He was then slung out of there for spilling beer on the desk. He was generally being a bit of a knob - and The Roses can't be arsed with the pantomime."
A spokesperson for The Stone Roses refused to comment on the matter but Liam's former Oasis bandmate Bonehead was sceptical of the reports. In an email to NME he wrote: "I wasn't in Dubai with Liam, I was in Barcelona with him for the first gig at the Razzmatazz, [he was] totally well behaved and a good night was had by all." He added: "First I've heard he was kicked out in Dubai, I'm sure I'd know if he was though. I don't believe a word of it, he was out with his wife and kid."
Meanwhile, Gallagher has vowed to never play Glastonbury again. The Beady Eye frontman played at Worthy Farm with Oasis three times – headlining in both 1995 and 2004. But he has said that he would never play there again, adding: ''Never, ever doing that thing ever again because it's a nightmare."
