Oasis co-founder Liam Gallagher, as well as The Smiths’ former legendary frontman Morrissey, are two of the most iconic and controversial names in British rock. Recently, Liam took to social media via Twitter to answer a couple of fan questions. One of which was if he ‘liked The Smiths’, This was met with a resoundingly flat reply of ‘Yes’. However, when Liam was asked a follow-up if the group likes him back, which was given no response.
Liam discussed the prospects of a potential Oasis reunion earlier this year in an interview with Esquire as well as when the last time he saw he physically saw his brother, Noel Gallagher was. Those comments courtesy of the outlet can be viewed below.
The last time I saw Noel was at a football match about 10 years ago. It’s a shame, isn’t it? “The good times outweigh the bad times,” he added. “I think it’s best to just leave it at that.”
He would continue: “I like to think Oasis will get back together, but not this week.“The door is ajar on everything. I wouldn’t be surprised if space aliens landed tomorrow. I wouldn’t be surprised if they were already here. I wouldn’t be surprised if God walks among us. I wouldn’t be surprised by all sorts.”
Liam Gallagher’s last record was released on May 27th of this year and has been getting a solid reception from fans and critics alike. One amateur reviewer would proclaim: “A bit more of an eclectic & sophisticated collection of songs, not just Rockers & Lennon-type ballads (although there is some of that on the album), but the music is mature.”
The review would go on: “Highlights for me are “More Power”, with its choir singers, there’s a nod to the Stones “You can’t always get want you to want”. “World’s in Need” has a bit of Led Zeppelin Eastern/blues feel mixed with a soupcon of “Magic Bus” & “Oh Sweet Children” is un-apologetically psychedelic & almost the son of “All around the World. Two good bonus songs on the deluxe version of the album, “The Joker” is quite funky & there’s a bit of industrial-sounding guitar on “Wave” & also includes the line “My Brother doesn’t like me, he’s said it before, who threw the first stone yeah & who’s keeping the score”, brilliant. So “C’mon you know” is another strong solo album by Liam, with plenty of memorable songs, he has certainly carved out his unique musical niche. Hopefully, his next release will be the Knebworth shows, can’t wait.”
