Liam Gallagher blasts Rock and Roll Hall of Fame after Oasis’ nomination

Liam Gallagher has slammed the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame after Oasis were nominated for entry into the museum.

The legendary Britpop group’s former frontman is not happy to have been shortlisted alongside his estranged brother, ex-guitarist and chief songwriter, Noel Gallagher, and their bandmates for the class of 2024.

He fumed on X/Twitter: “**** the Rock n Roll hall of fame its full of BUMBACLARTS LG x (sic)”

Ozzy Osbourne, the late Sinead O’Connor – who died last July, aged 56 – Mary J. Blige, Mariah Carey, and Cher are also among the nominees.

Dave Matthews Band, Eric B. and Rakim, Foreigner, Peter Frampton, Jane’s Addiction, Kool and the Gang, Lenny Kravitz, Sade and A Tribe Called Quest complete the list.

John Sykes, the chairman of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Foundation, said in a statement: “This remarkable list of nominees reflects the diverse artists and music that the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame honours and celebrates.

“Continuing in the true spirit of rock and roll, these artists have created their own sounds that have impacted generations and influenced countless others that have followed in their footsteps.”

Ozzy, 75, was already inducted as a member of Black Sabbath in 2006, and if he is voted in, he will become the 27th person to have multiple places, joining the likes of Sir Rod Stewart, all four Beatles, Jeff Beck, Stevie Nicks and Jimmy Page in having two, while Eric Clapton has three, one on his own and others as a member of both the Yardbirds and Cream.

Speaking after the nominations were announced, Ozzy said in a statement: “I’m deeply honoured to receive this news from the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

“To be one of the few musicians who’s being considered for a second entry, now as a solo artist, is something I could never have imagined. After 44 years as a solo artist the fact that I can continue to record music and receive this recognition is something I am incredibly proud of.”

Honourees will be announced in April and the ceremony will be staged in the autumn of 2024.
