The rocker clarified that his new band Beady Eye, formed from the remaining members of Oasis after Noel left the group in August 2009, is not a “stop gap” until the brothers make up.
He said: “Let’s be clear about one thing here – this band is not a stop gap until me and our kid bump into each other. Him and me are over and done with. This is the real deal.
“I’d like to think we grow up to be friends later on but I’ve no time for that just yet. The way I view Oasis now is that’s it like having a child from a previous relationship.”
Following Noel’s sudden departure from the band, Liam – who hasn’t spoken to his brother since the backstage argument which led to him quitting – revealed the remaining former Oasis members decided to put together Beady Eye the same night.
He added to the Irish Times newspaper: “Noel’s walked out, so it’s the rest of us sitting around in a room like this one going, ‘We’re still a rock ‘n’ roll band and we still want to play’, so effectively we formed that very same night’.
“I remember looking around the table that night. I was thinking to myself, ‘He’s a great guitarist, so is he, he’s a great drummer and I’m a geezer so let’s continue on without him. We don’t need him’.”
Primal Scream frontman Bobby Gillespie hopes Liam Gallagher’s new band Beady Eye is a huge success. The singer is yet to hear the band’s first track ‘Bring The Light’ but insists he is a big fan of the ‘Songbird’ singer and is confident he will make a rocking album with his bandmates Gem Archer, Andy Bell and Chris Sharrock, who all also performed with Oasis. He said: ‘ love Liam and I love Noel and I wish them both the best of luck in their new musical explorations. I don’t understand measuring people against what they did formerly. Either it rocks or it doesn’t rock. I hope it’s successful for Liam.’ The Manchester rocker decided to form his band after his brother Noel Gallagher quit the group in August 2009 following a pre-concert bust-up. Though Bobby hasn’t heard Beady Eye’s new material yet, he will have the opportunity to see them as the group have announced their first live dates for March next year. However, Gem has insisted fans won’t hear songs from their old band as they’re all focusing on the new group. He said: “We’re just buzzing about this band and looking forward to the album coming out and getting out on the road. And there’ll be no Oasis songs, either, if you were going to ask.”
Take That comeback album fastest seller since Oasis. Take That have smashed records in the U.K. with the band’s comeback album ‘Progress’ becoming the highest first-week seller in 13 years. Within a week, ‘Progress’ sold just shy of 520,000 copies, which is the highest opening week since Oasis’ 1997 album ‘Be Here Now’. The band have released several albums since their heyday after reforming in 2006, but without original member Robbie Williams who left to pursue a hugely successful solo career, they never quite matched their peak, but earlier this year it was announced that Robbie would rejoin the band and it has proved fruitful. In 1995 the band exploded onto the world with ‘Back For Good’ from the album ‘Nobody Else’. They were one of the giants of the boy band phenomenon and easily the most successful to come out of the UK. Rihanna’s ‘Loud’ entered the charts at number two and didn’t stand a chance.
