Liam Gallagher: Solo LP won’t be as good as Oasis

Liam Gallagher doesn’t think his solo album will be as "good or important" as anything Oasis did.
The 44-year-old rocker is keen for his former band – who split in 2009 following an explosive row between him and his brother, guitarist Noel Gallagher – to reunite but thinks he needs to wait for his older sibling to "lighten up" before that will happen.
So in the meantime, Liam is keeping busy in the studio working on his debut solo LP.
He said: "Being out of Oasis has been like a big f***in’ hole, but that’s life. And I’m dealing with the f***in’ guy that likes to be in f***in’ control so I’ll have to wait for him to lighten up. Or for his missus to let him join a rock ‘n’ roll band again.
"I’m ready to go, my f***in’ suitcases are packed. I know for a fact I could still whip me a**e out of them songs. If it happens it happens if it doesn’t it doesn’t.
"In the meantime I’m doing a f***in’ record on me jacks. And that won’t be nearly as good or as important."
While Oasis haven’t been together for over seven years, the ‘Cigarettes and Alcohol’ hitmaker still thinks they are the "best band" in the world.
Speaking to ‘Supersonic’ director Mat Whitecross for online publication Little White Lies, he said: "We’re still the best band today even though we’re not together. No one’s f***in’ come near us. Musically we were f***in’ great. Noel had the best songs, I had the best voice. We had attitude, we had flair and we didn’t give a fuck. Like it or f***in’ lump it. There was none of what’s happenin’ in today’s music where everyone’s just a f***in’ soppy little b*****d sitting there going, ‘Ohh I can’t swear, I can’t say how I’m f***in’ feeling in case I don’t get me download at the end of the week.’ Do one."
Liam thinks the state of modern music is "rubbish" and believes artists are too worried about their public image and record sales to behave like true rock ‘n’ roll stars.
Asked what he thinks of the current music scene, he said: "It’s rubbish mate. It’s rubbish and I’ll tell you why, cos’ everyone’s got their f**in’ camera out all the time so everyone has to behave themselves.
"There’s no rock ‘n’ roll antics any more and that’s important to me cos’ it’s not just about the music y’know what I mean. Everyone just seems really f**kin’ miserable. It’s like the music industry is being run by a bunch of nuns.
"All the bands just seem to be in it for a career. That’s not me having a pop at ’em, I just think they should f**in’ be ashamed of themselves."
But the ‘Rock ‘n’ Roll Star’ hitmaker insists he wouldn’t have calmed his own behaviour if he’d been under so much scrutiny.
Instead, it would have only made him more outrageous.
He said: "If someone had put a mobile phone in my face back then I’d have f***in’ stuck it up someone’s a**ehole or I’d of ate it or something. That’s what people want from their rock ‘n’ roll bands. If you like The 1975 or whatever that’s fine but come on man, they’re just in it for the f***in’ money mate."
