Liam Gallagher Defends BRIT Awards Snub
Liam Gallagher is speaking out on his choice to leave his brother and former [lastfm]Oasis[/lastfm] bandmember Noel out of his speech while accepting the award for best album of the last 30 years at the recent Brit Awards.
Though the group’s 1995 hit album (What’s The Story) Morning Glory? was co-written by Noel, Liam claims he wanted to put the spotlight on the group’s lesser-known members.
Liam explained to [lastfm]Oasis[/lastfm] blog StopCryingYourHeartout.com that in his opinion, the Gallagher brothers have received too much attention in recent months and it was time to give the band as a whole its due.“I’m sick of it all being about me and Noel,” he explained. “The last couple of months has pretty much been all about me and him so I thought it was only right to mention the other lads who played on the album and the best fans in the world.”
“I thought it was a nice gesture to give this to the fans,” he added. “Obviously it was misinterpreted as per usual.”
In the interview, Liam also confirmed that he and the remaining members of Oasis will release their first single in October, with a new album coming next year.
