“I think he’s had it easy off me. It’s only sticks and stones, they won’t break his bones. Wait till I bump into the cunt. Everything I say is the fucking truth. I’ve not even dug that deep yet. I don’t know what world he lives in, and I wouldn’t want to live in it, believe you me, because it seems very bland, naff and contrived and just… What? He’s like the new Robbie Williams or something. It’s fucking weird.” (Evening Standard)

8Liam Gallagher on Damon Albarn

“Now that dick out of Blur and the creepy one out of Oasis need to hang their heads in shame as it’s no ‘Dancing In The Streets’. That gobshite out of Blur might have turned Noel Gallagher into a massive girl but believe you me, next time I see him there’s gonna be war.” (Twitter)

9Liam Gallagher on his comeback

“There’s no one out there like me. I’ve nailed it ’cos I’ve got the tunes. If it goes on attitude and aggression then I’ve pissed it. If it goes on how shit you are, they win. Because I ain’t shit.” (NME)

10Liam Gallagher on bringing back Oasis

I’m not saying you should be going out fucking gobbing on people and fucking swearing and shit like that or whatever it is that people think we are, but I’m more on about the corporate side of it. He’s living over there in that world, you know what I mean, and there’s no fucking room for Oasis in that world as far as I’m concerned. I’d rather fucking work in McDonald’s mate or get hit by a fucking 18-wheeler at 100 miles an hour, than bring my band and put it in that world.” (Radio X)

11Liam Gallagher on new guitar bands
