Liam Gallagher Claims New Band Will Surpass Oasis
[lastfm]Liam Gallagher [/lastfm]recently told London’s Sunday Times that his new band [lastfm]Beady Eye[/lastfm] will be even bigger than [lastfm]Oasis[/lastfm] was.
“I’ve got no doubt about the music, no doubt about me,” Gallagher said. “I’ve never sounded better.
The singer went onto to say that he thinks Beady Eye’s success will make his brother and former bandmate [lastfm]Noel Gallagher[/lastfm] try to rejoin the group.
“My brother Noel will be crawling back . . . He thinks he’s the leader, he thinks every decision he makes is right . . . I started this f*cking band. I am Oasis.”
Beady Eye consists of Gallagher, former Oasis guitarist [lastfm]Gem Archer[/lastfm], bassist [lastfm]Andy Bell[/lastfm] and drummer [lastfm]Chris Sharrock[/lastfm]. The band is reportedly currently at work with [lastfm]U2[/lastfm] producer [lastfm]Steve Lillywhite[/lastfm].
“It’s proper rock’n’roll,” Gallagher says of the new band. “Oasis was a pop band compared to what we’re doing . . . The sound will be ‘Beatlesesque,’ but a lot of it sounds more like [lastfm]T.Rex[/lastfm] or really old rock’n’roll like [lastfm]Jerry Lee Lewis[/lastfm].”
