Liam Gallagher surely made a mark on Brit-Rock with Oasis and as an individual. Liam now flourishing as a solo artist, surely misses his gang but the brothers really departed in a bad term. Described as ‘A Man With A Fork In A World of Soup’, Liam has never been shy to share his opinion.
Following the split, Gallagher is now more into his own solo career. The band would still be active today but the split was inevitable as both the brothers were not on good terms. Spitting what he knows and wants, he also once revealed what band he wanted to be in.
While talking with MOJO, he revealed, “It’s boring as f***, to be fair. It ain’t what it’s meant to be. I’d much rather be in a band, all bashing it out together. But as long as it sounds good, that’s all that matters.”
Also during the Q&A with The Guardian in 2017, he revealed his desire to be in Sex Pistols. When asked, “If you could sing in a fantasy band, what would be your dream line-up?” He answered,
“I would have loved to have been in the Pistols,” he revealed. “I’d have kicked out Johnny Rotten – he’d have gone. Get out, Gooner. Paul Cook’s f***** mega. Steve Jones is the man. Sid Vicious, turn his bass down but he still f**** killed. But Rotten would have gone, I’m sorry. I can do Johnny Rotten in my sleep.”
He has also reserved special praise for certain albums. He revealed, “The most powerful song I’ve ever heard from a band, It’s got to be the Sex Pistols. Anything off Never Mind the Bollocks will do me. I think that still hasn’t been touched. You consider the day and age with all this technology going on, but they were doing it pretty simply, man, and still the aggression and the passion. No one has ever touched that record.”
Along with that, Noel even said, “I wish I’d written ‘Never Mind The Bollocks.” During the Q&A session with The Sun readers, Gallagher was asked, “If there was one album written by someone else that you could claim as your own, what would it be?” He replied,
“‘Never Mind The Bollocks…'”.
Noel has also spent time with John Lydon on Sex Pistols. He recalled that specific moment during an interview with the Daily Star. He remembered, “I’ve had a few nights out with John Lydon, he’s also one of my heroes, but I’ve also seen him be a f***ing a***, he just doesn’t take s*** off anyone.”
“I was out with him one night in LA and he wouldn’t talk directly to Liam, he would say to me, ‘Ask your singer what kind of make-up he’s wearing.’ Liam was literally six inches from him.'”
Also while speaking with Q Magazine the singer said, “The most influential record of all time is Never Mind The Bollocks. People who are still working now in the music business did their shit because of that record.” He added,
“It’s the absolute left turn. There is no argument. It cannot be bettered. It’s scientifically factual.”
