Beady Eye frontman Liam Gallagher has hailed The Stone Roses comeback as being ‘like ‘Quadrophenia‘ or something’ after witnessing his second Roses gig in quick succession at the Razzmatazz venue in Barcelona last Friday (June 8th).
Gallagher, who as a teenager drew inspiration to form the band which would go on to become Oasis after watching The Stone Roses performing in Manchester, was at the reunited band’s hastily announced gig in Warrington last month, and was also in attendance on Friday as the Roses opened their comeback tour with a set packed full of classic singles, b-sides and album tracks.
“It’s like ‘Quadrophenia’ or something,” Gallagher told the BBC after witnessing the Barcelona gig from the sound desk. “I feel different now. They’re the best band in the world, no question. I followed them around when I was 16 and 17, it’s amazing.”
Liam and his Beady Eye bandmates will support The Stone Roses on the second night of the band’s homecoming Manchester Heaton Park gigs, which begin on June 29th.Just Published:
