Well, that didn’t take long. Both Gallagher brothers have been promising other work since the breakup of Oasis, and now Liam claims he actually has plans to head out on tour. The singer was talking to an Italian radio station with a great name (Radio Deejay) earlier today (Nov. 13).
“I’ll be back doing that [playing live] within a couple of months,” he said. “I’ve just done a tour, I always miss singing songs. I miss the people.” But Liam doesn’t plan on returning to his roots, and is hoping that his new band can bypass any dues-paying and head straight back to the kind of large venues to which he’s become accustomed.
“To be quite honest, I think our kid [Noel Gallagher] wanted out,” he said, of the Oasis split. “But you’ll have to ask him when he comes in and does his little solo thing. We had an argument – but we’ve had bigger ones, about more important people. Basically, I think he wanted out, wanted something different, but he hadn’t got the bollocks to tell the band or the fans.”
Liam also offered some insight into what happened backstage in Paris during that final night of Oasis’ existence: “I didn’t smash it [the guitar] on him, I wish I had, man. He sort of… treated my guitar poorly, which was a present off my wife,” he said. “So I thought it was only fair to pay the compliment [back] so I smashed one of his. It sounds ridiculous, like a pair of old women.”
