Liam Gal­lagher: I was cliché that made Oa­sis work

The Courier & Advertiser (Fife Edition) - - NEWS - FRANCESCA GOSLING

Liam Gal­lagher la­belled him­self as a rock ‘n’ roll “cliché” as he ex­plained how his re­la­tion­ship with Noel was cru­cial to mak­ing Oa­sis work.

De­spite the well-known ten­sions be­tween him­self and his for­mer band­mate and big brother, he said the hit 1990s rock group would never have worked with “two Li­ams”.

Cred­it­ing Noel with writ­ing the songs that made the brothers fa­mous, the Wall Of Glass singer told GQ mag­a­zine: “That was Noel’s thing, my thing was the whole cliché: the sex, the drugs, the rock ’n’ roll.

“I lived it, mate, I was it, and that’s why Oa­sis worked.”

He added: “I know how much it annoyed him, he did the graft while I went out and un­did the graft, but Oa­sis wouldn’t have worked with two Li­ams or two Noels.”

With his own de­but solo As You Were on the way, the 44-year-old also spoke about his tur­bu­lent re­la­tion­ship with his own fam­ily and ad­mit­ted that he would be happy to make con­tact with his es­tranged el­dest daugh­ter Molly, who he shares with Lisa Moor­ish.

Gal­lagher said in no un­cer­tain terms that he still “does not get on” with Moor­ish.

He ad­mit­ted that Molly is “bet­ter off with her mum”, and said: “She’s wel­come in my world ... I’m open to ev­ery­thing, but at the mo­ment it ain’t hap­pen­ing.

“The girl’s been looked af­ter and clothed and fed and sent to lovely schools. I bought them a house and all that tack. They aren’t good when they are forced, th­ese things ... if it hap­pens it hap­pens. Cer­tainly, wouldn’t turn her away.”

Liam Gal­lagher says Oa­sis would not have worked with “two Li­ams or two Noels”.
