Liam Gallagher offers olive branch to Noel: “He knows deep down that I love him”
Liam Gallagher has seemingly attempted to calm the ongoing feud with his estranged brother, Noel, amid growing tensions.
Since Oasis split in 2009 the Gallagher brothers have repeatedly traded insults, the most recent coming from Noel who said. “I don’t think I’ve ever been so embarrassed for a man in my entire life,” when he was asked about Liam’s recent performance at Glastonbury Festival.
Despite Noel claiming this week that his brother threatened his wife, Liam attempted to reach out to his sibling by saying: “There is nothing more I would love than to have Noel’s head in my arm in a good headlock and then we just get on with our business.”
He continued: “He knows deep down that I love him and whatever he thinks I did, I didn’t, and if I did do it, I didn’t mean it.”
Speculation of an Oasis reunion has been rumoured for a number of years and, despite fans calling for it, both brothers have dampened expectations with an angry back and forth barrage of insults. When asked about the his old band in an interview with Star, Liam replied: “Its a shame we broke up, I can’t see it happening,” in reference to a comeback.
He added: “Everyone is always going on about money. I ain’t skint I’ve got more than enough to get me through the day and the night and the months and the years. I just think it would be a shame because people want it and I think it would still be good.”
While 2009 was officially the end of Oasis, the growing discontent has rumbled for years prior as the brothers repeatedly clashed over the direction of the band. On reflection, Liam said: “I still think we shouldn’t have split up anyway, it was just another little argument.”
There’s no doubt that the chances of Oasis coming back are slim at best, Liam left the door open by admitting: “Look, I’m ready to go at any given time, I’d put this solo stuff on hold whenever. I would do because I loved Oasis. I’m the guy from Oasis and Noel is as well.”
He added: “But I’m quite happy doing this solo stuff as well because it’s allowing me to get out, sing, do what I do and enjoy it.”
