Liam Gallagher slams Babyshambles and Keane stars

The singer calls Pete Doherty and Tom Chaplin 'posh lightweights'

Liam Gallagher has blasted Pete Doherty and Keane singer Tom Chaplin over their recent stints in rehab.

The Oasis frontman called the pair “posh lightweights” for checking into The Priory for drug addiction.

He told The Sun: “None of us have ever been in The Priory, like all these little idiots today. They have one little line, they have one burn and they’re all in rehab.


“That Pete Doherty is cabbaged already. And it’s like, ‘How old are you? Priory at 27 years of age? You idiot.’ Posh boys can’t take drugs, man. They’re lightweights.”

As previously reported on NME.COM, Chaplin recently spent a short spell in rehab where he was treated for drink and drug addiction.

Doherty is also currently continuing a drug rehabilitation programme at The Priory.

Oasis release their greatest hits collection ‘Stop The Clocks’ on November 20.
