Having recently been confirmed for his first solo festival appearance, rumours have also circulated of Gallagher’s first solo gig in London.
Asked who would he pick if he had to choose between Liam and brother Noel Gallagher, Ashcroft said: “I would have to politely tell them both that I had something else on and stay at home.”
“I wouldn’t be daft enough to give Liam any advice on going solo,” Ashcroft is also quoted as saying. “He can just be himself and do what he loves and people will connect to it.”
“We miss those characters, these people with an opinion. Most people just don’t [give an opinion] unless they believe they’re getting some sort of PC credit. Then they’re out there, appeal after appeal, holding babies and making everyone feel really guilty and miserable around Christmas.”
