Wondering What Liam Gallagher Thinks of Mick Jagger, Dave Grohl and Bono?
Gallagher, who typically takes shots at his brother and former bandmate Noel Gallagher, but has made numerous exceptions in the past to take issue with others, including U2, is featured on the cover of the latest edition of British GQ. NME reports that in an interview with the magazine, which asked his opinion on a number of his peers, he called Mick Jagger, Rolling Stones frontman and one of the elder statesmen of rock, "ol' dinosaur hips," saying he'd never play the music business game the way he has. “Fair play to ol’ dinosaur hips, but I’m not that man. I’m anti-entertainment. Poor sod, he’s got to dance until he’s 108.”
Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl, on the other hand, seems to yanked sick days out of all musicians' reach moving forward. "He ruined it for all of us," he said, when asked about the throne Grohl played from after breaking his foot on stage. "He broke his leg and still toured. Who does that? Now if I have a 'cold,' I can't cancel because I'll look like a wuss." This is an especially interesting comment, given that Gallagher left the Lollapalooza stage after 20 minutes last week, claiming his voice was shot from a gig the night prior.
But worst of all, are Gallagher's thoughts on Bono, which may have a bit to do with sibling rivalry, as his brother recently opened several U2 dates with his band, High Flying Birds. The artist who recently made his solo debut spoke of meeting Bono. "I had the Bono chat, yeah. Wish I'd had an out-of-body experience instead. Not in my top 50."
In the same interview, he also lobbed some insults on the host of the Late Late Show with James Corden, whom he called a "knobhead."
