Cham­pagne Su­per­moaner: Liam Gal­lagher hits out at bro Noel ... again

The Herald on Sunday - - NEWS IN BRIEF -

LIAM GAL­LAGHER is “up­set” with a ver­sion of Cham­pagne Su­per­nova played by his es­tranged brother Noel. The for­mer Oa­sis front­man crit­i­cised Noel, who wrote the 1996 hit, af­ter he played it live at a gig in Brazil.

“Just heard Dolly’s ver­sion of Cham­pagne Su­per­nova in Brazil. Some­body needs to have a word. It’s re­ally up­set­ting,” Liam tweeted. “My point is just be­cause you wrote it doesn’t mean you should al­ways sing it,” he went on to say, adding “it’s re­ally up­set­ting” and “I’m up­set”.

The an­tag­o­nism be­tween the brothers is long­stand­ing, with the band split­ting in 2009.

In a Q&A with fans ear­lier this month, Liam said Noel “needs all the songs he can get him­self th­ese days”, when asked if he would sing a song his brother wrote for him.

His de­scrip­tion of Noel as Dolly had some on Twit­ter con­fused at first. “Just been try­ing to find a video of Dolly Par­ton do­ing Cham­pagne Su­per­nova be­fore re­al­is­ing he’s talk­ing about Noel,” wrote @Cal­lumRah­man.

Liam Gal­lagher re­leased his de­but solo al­bum As You Were on Oc­to­ber 6, and it surged to the top of the charts – only be­ing knocked off the prime po­si­tion by Pink’s Beau­ti­ful Trauma on Fri­day.
