Liam Gallagher has been filmed telling a teenage fan that the new Beady Eye album is, “like rock ‘n’ roll, but fired out into space”.
Two teenage fans, Ryan Butterworth and Elliot Cole, ran into Gallagher outside the Forester’s Arms in Brockenhurst this week, and have uploaded their impromptu interview to YouTube – scroll down to watch. Chatting to Butterworth about the forthcoming second album from Beady Eye, Gallagher says: “It’s rock ‘n’ roll but it’s fired out into space. If you’re into drugs you’ll like it. it’s pretty druggy.”
Liam also goes on to say that Beady Eye will be touring soon and that they are currently getting plans for lives shows together. “We’ll be out in a few months. We’re playing festivals, bar mitzvahs. We’ve got to make it right this time, last time was a bit fucking stupid.” When camera man Cole asks about the possibility of Beady Eye playing Reading Festival, Liam responds: “We’re not doing that fucking thing!”
Speaking to NME about his chance encounter with Gallagher, Ryan Butterworth described the Beady Eye frontman as “genuinely the nicest man I have ever met”.
Liam was in Brockenhurst – where Butterworth is a college student – at a local recording studio where, Butterworth reports, he said he had just finished mixing Beady Eye’s new album.
“He was happy to be filmed – he didn’t mention it – and he was happy to look at the camera. He was really down to earth and I stayed with him for about two hours drinking with him. [I was] asking lots of questions he said he was in the area as he just finished mixing the new album around the corner.”
For Butterworth, it was a dream come true. “I am a huge Gallagher fan,” he says. “I have every record ever. Being a musician there is no one I look up to more in music.”
Beady Eye are expected to release their new album later on in 2013. Earlier this year Liam Gallagher said the album “is the LP Oasis should have made after ‘…Morning Glory.”
