Liam Gallagher planning ‘next step musically’ as ‘Oasis are no longer’

Singer finally breaks his silence on split

Liam Gallagher has declared that “Oasis is no longer” – ending speculation that he would continue the band without his brother Noel.

After the guitarist left the group following an altercation backstage in Paris there had been a suggestion that the singer would continue on with the band as the lone Gallagher.

However, speaking to The Times, Liam has declared the group is finished.

“Well, Oasis is no longer. I think we all know that. So that’s done,” he explained. “It’s a shame, but that’s life. We had a good run at it. The thing about Oasis is no-one… we ended Oasis. No-one ended it for us. Which was pretty, kind of… cool. I’m thinking of what the next step is musically, which is all my mind’s on.”

The singer, who is launching a new collection of his clothing label Pretty Green, hinted that he would continue with his Oasis bandmates while Noel pursues a solo career.

“People will be able to buy his records. People will be able to buy our records. So everyone’s happy,” he explained, adding that he hoped in future to recover his relationship with Noel. “Well, that’s a long way off yet, man, but who knows?”
