Former Oasis frontman Liam Gallagher has offered an olive branch to his brother Noel in an attempt to repair their broken relationship for the sake of their mother Peggy.
The two brothers have not been on speaking terms since Oasis broke up back in 2009. Noel quit the band just hours before they were due to play the Rock en Seine festival in Paris. The band had only three shows remaining of their huge world tour. At the time Noel suggested that Liam’s violent behaviour had played a large part in his decision to leave, even hinting that Liam may have tried to attack him with a guitar.
In a recent interview Liam has given some insight into the feud stating: “Obviously [our mum would] like us to be chatting, sit around the table at Christmas. But it’s a stupid standoff, and we should know better, as we have kids. It would be nice for me and [Noel] to get back together as brothers. But it’s good, the standoff. I’m enjoying it. I ain’t backing down. He ain’t backing down.”
“At least people are still talking about it. They’re obsessed.” “There’s no harm in it. He says shit about me. I say shit about him. I have held the olive branch out, and there has been nothing, so there you go. Potato it is, mate.”
There have been a few further indications that Oasis may be getting back together in 2017. These clues have been noticed by the bookies, who have slashed the odds on a potential reunion next year.
A new documentary directed by Mat Whitecross is due to come out at the end of the month titled ‘Oasis: Supersonic’. The documentary follows Oasis’ progression from a small time band in Manchester to one of the biggest acts on the planet in just a few years. The British media seem to have cast aside the content of the movie, and have been far more interested in whether both brothers will be attending the premier. Former guitarist Paul ‘Bonehead’ Arthurs will be attending, and has suggested he would be more than happy to reunite the original Oasis line up.
