Gallagher Vs. Gallagher
Oasis former frontman, Liam Gallagher is taking legal action against his brother (Oasis main songwriter and lead guitarist) Noel over alleged “lies”.
According to Press Association and the Belfast Telegraph, Liam is displeased by Noel’s statements in which he alleged Liam called his appearance off at a major festival because of a hangover. Liam is also arguing that Noel’s version about the band’s split is inaccurate.
That is a lie and I want Oasis fans, and others who were at V, to know the truth. I was gutted when I couldn’t play the gig because I didn’t want to let the fans down (…) There are many reasons why Oasis split. But it had nothing to do with my clothing range: Liam Gallagher.
Cancellation of a major festival appearance due to a hangover rather than a medical condition could potentially lead to contractual issues with the organisers. But Liam’s statement said it was laryngitis “diagnosed by a doctor” that stopped him performing, according to Yahoo News. The same source reports Liam said he was looking for an apology to put the record straight about the festival cancellation.
Beady Eye (Liam’s new band) is set for an European tour from October 7th, to 19th. Some of the confirmed venues at this moment are Atlantico (Rome), Volkshaus (Zürich), Columbiahalle (Berlin) and Heineken Music Hall (Amsterdam).
Noel on the other hand, announced recently the release of the debut single of his new band, Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds, under the title ‘The Death of You and Me’, which will be available on August 22nd, 2011.
