Liam Gallagher’s Beady Eye has officially acquired a new member: Kasabian's Jay Mehler. The guitarist recently parted ways with Kasabian to join the former Oasis frontman's new outfit, and from the looks of things, the split from his former band was an amicable one.
Liam Gallagher is going for the gold. The ex-Oasis singer and his new band, Beady Eye, have allegedly agreed to perform Oasis' 'Wonderwall' during the closing ceremonies of the 2012 Summer Olympics in London. Liam is stepping in for his estranged brother Noel Gallagher's High Flying Birds, who reportedly turned down a request to play the tune after considerable thought.
He's refrained from delving into his former band's multi-platinum catalog since they split up in 2009, but time heals all wounds, and Liam Gallagher is ready to start playing Oasis songs again -- at least judging from Thursday night's (June 28) set list, which found the Beady Eye frontman revisiting 'Rock 'N' Roll Star' and 'Morning Glory.'
Beady Eye frontmant Liam Gallagher has come under fire after he revealed that his current band would play Oasis tunes live this summer. Not surprisingly, the polarizing singer has struck back at fans who are criticizing his announcement.
If you need a little 'Wonderwall' or 'Champagne Supernova' or 'Don't Look Back in Anger' in your life, you're about to be obliged. Ex-Oasis frontman Liam Gallagher and Beady Eye, his new band consisting of former Oasis members save for his brother and nemesis Noel, has confirmed that they will perform songs from their one-time band while on tour.
