Former Oasis and Beady Eye frontman Liam Gallagher has confirmed that he will soon be making a return to recording music. It has been an eventful week for the 43 year old, who has spoken out against rumours surrounding Oasis, going solo and being dubbed the most ‘punk rock dude’ in the music biz.
Following the break up of Oasis in 2009, the younger Gallagher brother almost immediately founded new band Beady Eye with fellow Oasis members Andy Bell and Gem Archer. Beady Eye released their first record ‘Different Gear, Still Speeding’ in 2011. The album was well received by the music press and charted at number 3 in the UK.
Beady Eye’s second release ‘BE’ spelled even more success for the band, peaking at number 2. The band eventually disbanded in 2014 with bassist Andy Bell claiming that Gallagher’s ‘heart was no longer in it’. Outside of music, Gallagher has been concentrating on his clothing label Pretty Green.
Now after almost three years Gallagher has given an interview in which he talks about an upcoming new chapter in his life and recovering from the post Beady Eye crisis he experienced.
Liam has been his usual chirpy self on twitter this week dispelling rumours of an Oasis reformation. In reference to a friend stating that the band may be getting back together, Gallagher tweeted: “Ignore him he’s mentally ill and he’s a Utd fan”.
The singer was also given high praise by former Blink 182 guitarist Tom DeLonge who gave this statement about meeting Gallagher in an interview with ‘The Pursuit of Tone’: “I went ‘oh my god, that’s the most punk rock dude I’ve ever met in my life’. I became the biggest Oasis fan after that where from that day forward I stopped listening to punk rock music and started listening to everything.”
Gallagher gave this response again via twitter: “The most punk rock dude ever ha ha, You’ve seen fuck all yet mate”.
