‘It’s Boring Without Me’: The Best Quotes From Liam Gallagher’s Hilarious New Interview

The king is back. Liam Gallagher’s done his first big interview in an age, and he is – as ever – on top form. Read on for the highlights from LG’s hilarious, revealing and sometimes actually rather sweet Q magazine cover feature. Warning: contains climbing trees, slagging off Noel and more slagging off Noel.

On jogging
“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. Normally, though, seven miles.”


On his north London neighbours
“It’s like 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.”

On his missus
“Debbie saved me. No bullshit. Debbie swooped me up as I was falling, 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.”

On his milkman
“He’s fucking top, he gave me a pint of lactose-free milk for nothing the other day.”

On getting back together with Noel
“Do you think I want to be in a band with that cunt? He says, ‘Liam has to change.’ Get to fuck. So I just tweet when he drops the ball because I will not let him get away with murder.”

On the Oasis split
“I was more disappointed that Oasis split up. I wonder if he was. I’ve never heard him say he was disappointed about Oasis. No, he’s got what he wanted.”

On Noel being pals with Blur’s Damon Albarn
“Whatever next? Robbie Williams turning up on his next record? I’d have to send the police round. Put it this way, Noel lives in a £17million house. That changes you, I reckon. You have appropriate furniture, appropriate kitchens, appropriate red wine that Bono’s recommended. And Damon Albarn becomes your mate. Fair dos, but not for me.”


On politics
“I am partial to Prime Minister’s Questions though. I’m not bothered about politics, Theresa May and that other cunt can get on with it.”

On the current music scene
“No, it’s fucking shit. It’s boring without me, isn’t it? On my game I will roast anyone. Anyone. Whether it’s interviews, photoshoots, on record or on that fucking stage. And there are a lot of people getting away with murder on that stage from my generation.”

On his forthcoming solo tracks

“We’ve demoed some songs and it’s sounding… I am not embarking on a solo ‘career’. Everyone should know that. There are just 10, 11 songs I’ve written that are eligible to be recorded. They’ve got flair, attitude, the melodies are sick and the words are fucking funny.”

On when we’ll hear them

“We’ll record them this year and release it next year. It’ll shock people. It’s a record written by me, that’s got all the right ingredients and sounds well tasty. You won’t be scratching your chin. It’s not Pink Floyd and it ain’t Radiohead. It’s chin-out music.”

On the new Oasis film
“I miss the Noel in the film, that’s the Noel I know. And I do love him. I don’t sit at home crying into a picture of him, though, and I’m sure he doesn’t of me either. But I’m an energy and I bet he misses that energy”.

On trees
“Climbed one the other day. I was running on the Heath and I thought, ‘That looks like a nice tree, I’m going to climb that fucking tree.’ Climbed it and sat there with my hood up for about 10 minutes.”

On Noel. Again
“Lots of people say I need to chill out about Noel. Not until they stop Twitter. That cunt will always get it from me.”

On Tweeting about Noel
“I’ve heard they really annoy him. Someone told me the other week that the only thing that does his nut in are my tweets. Good. They will carry on and they will get bigger and better.”
