Since the end of Oasis, Noel Gallagher has built a successful solo career for himself, with three albums that have all reached the top of the UK charts. His most recent album was 2017’s Who Built The Moon?, and at a gig earlier this year, he revealed he’s expecting to drop a new LP in 2023.
Brother and former Oasis bandmate Liam Gallagher, with whom Noel has a famously contentious relationship, caught wind of this and has weighed in on his brother stepping even further into the limelight. Of course, as with typical fashion of Liam Gallagher to do – he threw insults the way of Noel.
This all started when a fan asked Liam on Twitter: “Noel said he’s releasing a new album in 2023. Do you get excited when he releases new material… you know as a connoisseur of music and your rock n roll knowledge?”
The brother would respond: “Let’s hope he’s hired a proper singer to sing his songs can’t be doing with his whimpering.”
Some people may be a bit new to how Liam Gallagher chooses to run things on his social media as a few were not happy with the above response. Sure, you can call Liam crass, out of pocket, mean, or rude – but you have to know what you’re dealing with first and foremost.
A Twitter user noted his answer to his brother’s upcoming album was “not very nice,” to which Liam replied, “It wasn’t meant to be.”
It’s not always shade coming from Liam, though. About a month ago, after performing with Foo Fighters at the Taylor Hawkins tribute concert in London, Liam said of the band’s leader, “Dave Grohl is the most inspiring musician person on the PLANET (today).”
Surely, Noel Gallagher would have been happy with getting the same amount of courage given to Grohl by his own brother.
Let’s hope he’s hired a proper singer to sing his songs can’t be doing with his whimpering
