Spokesperson for Gallagher clarifies recent speculation
A spokesperson for Liam Gallagher has denied recent reports linking him to a new musical project with Lee Mavers of The La’s.
Tabloid reports last week (July 13) suggested that Gallagher has spent the last two months writing and recording with Mavers after the pair were brought together by former Beady Eye and La’s drummer Chris Sharrock.
“Despite all the madness and excitement that surrounds Liam’s personal life, he has always been very serious about his music and doesn’t want to be retired or left waiting for his brother to decide he wants to bring Oasis back,” a source told The Sun.
“Liam and Lee share a lot of similar ideas about music and although Liam has had his fair share of success with his own self-penned songs, his voice and swagger combined with Lee’s undoubted ear for a chorus could create something very special.”
However, a spokesperson for Gallagher today (July 22) has confirmed that the reports are incorrect, saying “there isn’t any truth in this.”
Earlier this year it was reported that Oasis had come to a “gentleman’s agreement” to reform. Noel Gallagher subsequently denied that he would be interested in the move, claiming that the rumour came from a “source close to Liam”.
Liam also compared his older brother to Katie Hopkins in a separate tweet about the ongoing rumours of an Oasis reunion.
Beady Eye split in October 2014 after releasing two albums together.
