Well maybe not the both of them, just Liam this time (what a surprise). With hype high for the new Oasis documentary ‘Supersonic’ this week, Liam has spoken his mind on a whole range of topics regarding everything from the bands split to his and Noel’s relationship. This time round, he has some choice words for other bands (no not Blur, that saga ended over a decade ago).
The infamous 44 year old has called out the ‘tween-stars’ and youth groups for not ‘behaving like proper rock stars’. I think if anyone is qualified to make a statement like this, it would be Liam Gallagher.
The ‘Beady Eye’ front-man further confirmed this when speaking to The Sunday Times stating, ‘If it’s all about music, then it’s Coldplay. The most rock’n’roll thing Chris Martin did was wear a leather jacket. I thought, ‘Go on, lad. That’s a start’. Eloquently put don’t you think?
He then had some choice words of advice to give young musicians out there, further exclaiming, ‘If I was a 20-year-old in a band and somebody stuck a phone in my face, I’d stick it up their arse, or mine. There is no excuse for young bands to act like grown men. When you’re older and have kids, cool it out a bit, but I get up to more mischief in my butcher’s than they do on their fucking tours’.
In all honesty, I have to agree with the chap. When you think of real, 21st century rock stars who comes to mind? No-one, absolutely no-one. We consider things like Harry Styles sporting a trench coat, a rockstar action. Christ if ‘Slaves’ are considered the most edgy group in Britain at the moment performing collaborations with the likes of ‘Chase & Status’, then perhaps music does need to grow its nutsack back again.
