Former Oasis singer 'found himself in crisis' after Beady Eye split
Liam Gallagher‘s return to music appears to have been confirmed, speaking about a “new chapter” and getting his “life back together” in an upcoming interview.
Gallagher also reportedly spoke about experiencing a “crisis” after his post-Oasis band Beady Eye broke up. The group, led by Gallagher and featuring former members of Oasis and Kasabian, released two albums since their formation in 2009. They announced their split in 2014.
Now Q Magazine has teased a new interview with Gallagher, in which he allegedly speaks of how he “got his life back together” after finding himself “in crisis after the split of Beady Eye”.
Liam is now “making plans for a dynamic new chapter,” the preview adds. “It’s been boring without me, hasn’t it?” Gallagher is quoted as saying on the magazine cover, out next week.
Friend of Liam’s and Oasis associate Paul ‘Bigun’ Ashbee recently claimed in a Facebook post (as reported by Manchester Evening News) that Liam was looking into “the possibility of going out on his own with the original members of Oasis, but guess what Noel wouldn’t endorse it”.
However, when asked by a fan on Twitter about the claims, Liam responded by saying of Ashbee: “Ignore him he’s mentally ill and he’s a [Man United] fan”. See that tweet beneath.
Liam Gallagher has also responded to Tom Delonge calling him “the most punk rock dude ever”.
In a preview of the latest episode of The Pursuit Of Tone, a series of documentaries about musicians, DeLonge recalls when the trio performed at a radio show on the same day as Oasis.
“I remember sitting backstage and I’ve got my sideways hat on and nose piercings and crazy shit,” DeLonge remembered. “Here the doors open up and in come these guys in trench coats and Beatles haircuts. My first reaction is ‘fuck, they look pretty fucking cool, but they’re not punk rockers, but whatever’.”
DeLonge continued with an anecdote about Gallagher coming into their dressing room after the show and asking if they were Blink-182. “He goes ‘you’re the best I’ve seen in America’. I go ‘you like us!’ and he goes ‘I didn’t say that, but you’re the best I’ve seen in America’ and he slammed the door.”
“I looked at everyone else and I went ‘oh my god, that’s the most punk rock dude I’ve ever met in my life’. I became the biggest Oasis fan after that where from that day forward I stopped listening to punk rock music and started listening to everything.”
