Beady Eye frontman Liam Gallagher has candidly discussed the frustration being felt at what he claims are lies told by estranged brother Noel regarding the break up of Oasis.
Last week, Noel Gallagher finally announced his solo plans to a London press conference, and in doing so offered his own take on the events in Paris in 2009 which led to the Manchester band’s dramatic demise.
During the conference, Noel described how a disagreement over Liam Gallagher’s Pretty Green clothing range plans marked the beginning of the end for their infamously strained relationship, and also accused his brother of faking an illness when he pulled out of a scheduled appearance at the 2009 V Festival.
Now, in an interview with Edith Bowman on BBC Radio 1, Liam has directly addressed the points raised, saying the claims are all fabrications which are ‘breaking his heart’.
“I got diagnosed with laryngitis for the V Festival – I wasn’t hung-over,” he said. “I do gigs when I’ve been hung-over. I’m a big boy. I’m not going to cancel a gig because I’ve got a headache.”
“Second lie,” Liam continued in reference to the Pretty Green allegations. “I have never ever had a conversation with him about Pretty Green or anything. Them words Pretty Green have never come out of my mouth with Noel Gallagher. Ever. Him saying it’s the demise of Oasis – I’m not having it.”
“It’s time he woke up. He’s no angel. I’m partly to blame but I’m not solely to blame. It’s breaking my heart. People need to know that it wasn’t just me who split the band up, it was Noel too.”
Noel Gallagher’s debut solo album, ‘Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds‘, is set for release in October.
