Lanegan wrote on Twitter: “Coke addicts are junkies too you fucking tool, the stupidest kind. Still trying to make like you’re hard. i could have then and still could put serious hurt on you. Leave it alone dickhead unless you’re actually ready to finally step up.”
In his new memoir Sing Backwards and Weep, Lanegan says the pair clashed after Gallagher mocked the singer during their tour, shouting “Howling Branches” at him in an apparent bid to ridicule his band Screaming Trees.
Gallagher is then said to have furiously responded and suggested the pair have a physical fight when they were both back in Miami during the tour.

“I detested bullies and refused to put up with them,” Lanegan writes in the book.
“Liam Gallagher was an obvious poser, a playground bully. Like all bullies, he was also a total pussy.”
Describing Liam’s exit from the tour, he claimed: “He had quit and bailed before I could have a go at him before his promised playground battle royale in Miami.”
Responding to the claim, Gallagher tweeted yesterday: “Mark Lannegn [sic] here’s how I saw it I asked you your band’s name I was fucking around and called it something else… you being an upiight [sic] junkie and not having a sense of humour got your grungy little knickers in a twist another bullshitter trying to sell a book.”
The demo of ‘Don’t Stop’ comes from an Oasis soundcheck in Hong Kong, which was recorded “about 15 years ago”.
