Elsewhere in the interview, Gallagher criticised the current music climate, saying: “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 a record or on that fucking stage.”
He went on to say: “There’s a lot of singers out there who are one step away from a vicar. And very few who stare at you in the eyes. They’ve all got something to hide. They know they’ve done wrong.”
“You ever get Chris Martin to look you in the eye? I’m sure he does put on a good gig, Chris Martin, the amount of money he gets paid. He looks like he’s in [kids TV show] The Tweenies though. The whole band look beyond shit. Have they not seen any photos of The Rolling Stones? Probably not.”
It’s not the first time Gallagher has insulted Martin and his band either. In 2006, he told that Martin “looks like a geography teacher” and that Coldplay were a “bunch of students”.
In 2008, Gallagher said: “I’ve mellowed, but not in the sense of liking Radiohead or Coldplay… I don’t hate them, I don’t wish they had accidents. I think their fans are boring and ugly and don’t look like they’re having a good time”.
