Liam Gallagher Might Be Forming a Supergroup With Roger Daltrey
With Beady Eye calling it quits last year and an Oasis reunion looking less and less likely, Liam Gallagher might be going a bit stir crazy. But it looks like he finally found something to do: TFI Friday – a British talk show from the late '90s – is having a one-off live special on Friday (June 12) and a spokesperson confirmed the special will feature a performance from a supergroup consisting of Gallagher, the Who's Roger Daltrey, the Lightning Seeds' Ian Broudie and former Oasis drummer (and son of Ringo Starr) Zak Starkey.
An unidentified source told the Sun:
Liam's got a bit of time on his hands since Beady Eye called it a day last year, so he fancied trying his hand at something new. He's told his mates he's pretty bored. Other than Noel (Gallagher), you would be hard pushed to find a better set of bandmates than Roger, Ian and Zak. It's a proper supergroup and the performance will be something to remember.
Since the news is still fresh and somewhat poorly sourced, not much is known about the supergroup, like its name or its future beyond the TFI Friday special (or if there will even be one). It has been confirmed, though, that the special's musical lineup will be rounded out by an all-star lineup of Britpop greats including Blur, the Stone Roses and Primal Scream bassist Mani, Rudimental and Years & Years.
