Liam Gallagher snubs Noel as Oasis win Brit Album Of 30 Years award

Singer also called a 'knobhead' by host Peter Kay

Oasis have picked up the award for Brits Album of 30 Years for 1995’s ‘(What’s The Story) Morning Glory?’, at this year’s Brit Awards tonight (February 16).

Liam Gallagher picked up the award in person and took the opportunity to thank his former bandmates – neglecting to mention brother Noel Gallagher.

“Listen kids, I wanna thank Bonehead, Guigs [bassist Paul McGuigan], Alan White and the best fucking fans in the world,” Gallagher explained before throwing his microphone and award into the audience as he walked offstage.


After he did, host Peter Kay was then heard saying, “What a knobhead” before, during the commercial break, Brits officials pleaded for the audience member who got the award to give it back, with the fan returning it after a few minutes.

Radio 2 listeners voted for the award, which is celebrating the 30th anniversary of the London ceremony.

Coldplay – ‘A Rush Of Blood To The Head’
