The legendary frontman and rock legend, Roger Daltrey, talks with the singer-songwriter, Yungblud, about a Liam Gallagher show in Paris. They discuss their mutual love of Oasis, Liam and his band Beady Eye and how it all came together for this special Rolling Stone interview.
Roger Daltrey: Liam Gallagher was there at this gig in a tent in Paris, and dear Liam is standing in the audience in a bloody anorak. He’s the coolest dude, I love him to bits. Have you met him?
Yungblud: I’ve never met him. But I love his band. I like his naughtiness. He’s got his bite.
Roger Daltrey: He’s just got an edge, and I wish [Oasis] would just get back together. Liam, though, has really carved out a niche for himself now, and I love him. I think he’s fabulous. He’s totally honest. He’s not frightened of saying how he feels. Very similar to you. You remind me of him a bit. He’s from the other side, though! I’ve got a Yorkshire daughter from Huddersfield.
Roger now has a new connection with his own daughter talking about her love of underground music like The Smiths and the Clash while discussing Oasis with Les Paul, who had been instrumental in helping bring their favorite band back together after a decade apart.
Yungblud has announced that he’s getting a tattoo of Liam Gallagher‘s face, in recognition of his influence on the world of music. The singer shared the news on Instagram Stories, with a photo of the inking process underway. Oasis were an English rock band formed in Manchester in 1991.
Initially successful and highly popular, they suffered a series of setbacks in the years after their debut album (1994) and were dropped by their label Epic Records. In 2009, Oasis released their ninth studio album Dig Out Your Soul; after a three-year hiatus, the band returned to touring in 2015–2016. The band’s lineup consists of Liam Gallagher (lead vocals), Paul “Bonehead” Arthurs (drums), Tony McCarroll (bass guitar), Guilherme Amorim (guitar) and Noel Gallagher (guitar, vocals).
Roger loves how honest both of these artists are. They’re not afraid to stand up for their beliefs and their opinion. You can sense that their passion for music and for the music industry is what drives them in life, so it’s easy to see why they’ve become such successful artists.
