Noel Gallagher praised Kurt Cobain in a new Virgin Radio interview, he said that Nirvana’s Nevermind is genius. “That album still sounds amazing today. It’s a modern classic.”
It has come to light that it’s 23 years since Oasis released their live album, Familiar To Millions, which charts their mammoth gig at Wembley Stadium on 21st July 2000. The album have debuted at number five in the UK charts when it was released, but the gig itself is cited as the reason Liam Gallagher stopped drinking heavily on stage.
Asked by Radio X‘s Chris Moyles back in 2019 whether he drank booze on stage, the Manchester rocker replied: “Just water man.
“I’ve not drank booze on stage since that famous Wembley gig. Remember that one where it all went a bit…?”
He added: “Apparently people like that kind of thing but now I steer clear of all of that, do you know what I mean? It’s just water man, stuff like that. Every now and again, it depends if it’s a short gig, I might have a little cheeky tequila just to get the party started. ”
Asked whether he’d have a few drinks before going on back in the day, Gallagher quipped: “And the rest, yeah,” adding: “I think as you get older though, you just can’t do it, can you?
“When you’re 20 and that, you can do what you want. I used to smoke ganja on stage and everything. But now, I’d end up singing Taylor Swift songs, you know what I mean, forget what band I’m in.
