"They got on like a house on fire."
Liam Gallagher has made peace with Alex Turner over a pint, after the Oasis icon criticised the American success of Arctic Monkeys.
The pair were seen necking beers together at Budapest’s Sziget Festival last week, after Liam previously mocked the Arctic Monkeys frontman for appearing to adopt an American twang when he relocated to Los Angeles.
“Liam has definitely mellowed over the past year” a source told The Sun.
“Particularly since reuniting with his daughter Molly [Moorish]. He’s realised that sometimes he is too quick to speak before thinking things through.”
As the pair buried the hatchet, they spent hours “drinking and talking about music” at a local hotel.
“Liam is definitely a changed-for-the-better man”, the source explained.
“Alex didn’t seem to be holding any grudge, they got on like a house on fire.”
Liam first courted controversy during an interview with BBC Radio 1’s Greg James last year, hitting out at the apparent change in Turner’s voice.
“It’s when they do an interview and that later on down the line and they’ve been to America once and they come back”, Liam explained.
“They start speaking American. You know what I mean? They’re the ones. Like the geezer from the Arctic Monkeys [Alex Turner]. He did it, didn’t he? He started getting his hair in a quiff and biker leather jackets on. You know what I mean?”
He added: “It’s like, when he goes back to his mum’s, does he really walk in with that biker leather jacket and go [American accent] “hey mum, can I have some tea?”
Meanwhile, Liam played a huge homecoming show at Manchester’s Old Trafford cricket ground on Saturday.
In front of 50,000 people at the sold-out ground, support act Richard Ashcroft joined Gallagher on guitar and vocals as the two paid tribute to the victims of the Manchester Arena bombing last May.
During their performance, a Manchester bee and the number 22 appeared on the screen to remember those who lost their life.
