Noel Gallagher Will ‘Never Forgive’ Brother Liam Over Past Arguments
As has been made abundantly clear in the years following Oasis' break-up in 2009 -- and also before then -- brothers Liam and Noel Gallagher don't exactly get along. In a recent interview, Noel said that he "could never forgive" Liam for his behavior when the band was still active. Check out video of the interview below, via Noisey:
Referring to "Wibbling Rivalry," a spoken-word single from 1995 that features the brothers arguing during a 1994 interview, Noel said, "The 'brawling' might have been blown out of all proportion by the song and The Mirror ... If I think back to it now, my argument [in the recording] is 'Be a c--- all you want, but let's do the gig first and then be a f---ing dick.' His argument is 'I'm just being a dick all the time.' Repeat endlessly until f---ing 2009."
He then spoke about the frequency of their spats, which was high: "I remember countless gigs where three songs in he'd just pop his f---ing headphones out and just get off. You'd be doing a guitar solo and you'd get to the end of the song and think, 'It's not that mad for him just to disappear during the guitar solo and not sing the rest of the song — he's obviously gone back to fix his sunglasses or something.' Then you'd just go, 'Where's Liam gone?' And he's got off. What do you mean he's got off? 'He's got a sore throat.' What a c---. Then you've got to go out and say in English to a perplexed Japanese people... and they're all like 'What the f--- is going on here? Where's the singer gone?'"
We're thinking this takes air out of the Oasis reunion rumors, although maybe it would work if they got back together without Noel, an idea that has recently been discussed but ultimately seems to lack substance.
