LIAM GALLAGHER has called COLDPLAY frontman CHRIS MARTIN a “knobhead student” for expressing strong anti-war views at a fundraising show.
The Oasis singer slammed Martin for his comments at the band’s Teenage Cancer Trust show In London on Monday (March 24), where he encouraged the sell-out crowd at the Royal Albert Hall to “sing against war”.
Gallagher also labelled Martin’s Oscar-winning actress girlfriend Gwyneth Paltrow a “gawky bird”.
The verbal assault came after Gallagher appeared as a special guest at Richard Ashcroft‘s Teenage Cancer Trust show at the same venue on Wednesday (March 26).
He told The Sun : “When Coldplay did this gig they banged on about the war, that’s wrong. Chris Martin shouldn’t be using this cause to bang on about his own views on the war. If him and his gawky bird want to go banging on about the war they can do it at their own gigs.
“That lot are just a bunch of knobhead students – Chris Martin looks like a geography teacher. What’s all that with writing messages about Free Trade on his hand when he’s playing. If he wants to write things down I’ll give him a pen and a pad of paper. Bunch of students.
“These gigs are about kids who have got cancer, they’ve got to fight a war every day of their lives. That’s what we’re all here doing this for.”
Other acts playing at the Albert Hall through the week of shows included Supergrass, [/a] and[a].
