Gibb wants to pen a track for Gal­lagher

Kuwait Times - - LIFESTYLE -

Barry Gibb wants to write a song for Liam Gal­lagher. The 70-year-old Bee Gees leg­end has a lot of re­spect for the for­mer Oa­sis front­man and de­spite be­ing close pals with his bit­ter ri­val and sib­ling Noel Gal­lagher, 50, the 'Stayin' Alive' hit­maker wouldn't rule out get­ting into the stu­dio with the 'Wall of Glass' singer. Speak­ing ex­clu­sively to BANG Showbiz at the O2 Sil­ver Clef Awards at Lon­don's Grosvenor House Ho­tel on Fri­day Gibb said: "Of course I would [write a song for Liam Gal­lagher] but you have to be asked. You re­ally can't just say, ' I'm go­ing to write a song for so and so'. Usu­ally so and so has to ask you but I rec­og­nize great op­por­tu­ni­ties when they come by and if that's the case I'll do it." And should Gibb and Liam, or in­deed Liam's brother, ever col­lab­o­rate in the near fu­ture, get­ting in a record­ing stu­dio to­gether shouldn't be an is­sue as Noel is be­lieved to live close by. Gibb con­tin­ued: "I would love it (to work with Noel). I would love it be­cause I love him and love them (Noel and Liam) to­gether. I love oa­sis. He's only down the street from me out there in Bea­cons­field. I don't think it's Bea­cons­field but it's very close by." Gibb is used to be­ing in a band with sib­lings - Mau­rice and Robin who sadly passed away - and can em­pathize with any broth­erly fall-outs, so he doesn't think an Oa­sis re­union is on the cards de­spite the con­stant ru­mors. Asked what he thinks the chances are, Gibb said: "No. I know about brothers. No­body can bring peo­ple back to­gether again, cer­tainly not me."
