Liam Gallagher ‘takes to running backwards’ in bid to stay fit

Beady Eye frontman seen jogging in reverse around north London

Liam Gallagher has reportedly taken to jogging backwards around his local neighbourhood.

A report in The Sun today (March 21) states that the Beady Eye frontman has been seen taking part in the unusual method of running, known as retro running, by onlookers in Hampstead, north London.

One onlooker told the tabloid, “I thought it was a bit rich for a millionaire who sings to fans about ‘Cigarettes & Alcohol’ to be taking his fitness that seriously. Mind you, he did manage to retain the frontman sneer, even running backwards.”

Personal trainer Jason Doggett, however, revealed that retro running holds health benefits: “It is common practice among athletes. It’s useful for sports that require multi-directional movement, not least for football.”

Recently, Gallagher urged Oasis fans not to buy the forthcoming reissue of the band’s debut album ‘Definitely Maybe’. Writing on Twitter, he said: “HOW CAN YOU REMASTER SOMETHING THATS ALREADY BEING MASTERED.DONT BUY INTO IT.LET IT BE LG X”

It was announced on last month (February 26) that the album would be reissued to mark its 20th anniversary in May, and will include rare and unreleased recordings. The reissue is the first in the new Chasing The Sun series from Big Brother Recordings, with follow-up albums ‘(What’s The Story) Morning Glory?’ and ‘Be Here Now’ to be reissued later in the year.
