Liam Gallagher opens up about relationship with Noel and the chances of an Oasis reform

“Me and our kid don’t speak and that’s the saddest thing about it,” Liam Gallagher said when he was asked about his relationship with estranged brother Noel.

The Manchester icons split Oasis in 2009, just moments before they were due to headline Paris’ Rock En Seine Festival and haven’t spoken since.

Liam, who has now followed the same path as Noel into making solo music, has explained how no amount of money could force Oasis to reunite if  the brothers repair can’t their relationship.

“We don’t do it for the money,” he said while in the studio with Beats 1’s Zane Lowe. “We didn’t do Oasis to make money. I did it to make music and get out of Manchester and see what’s out there.”

“Me and our kid don’t speak and that’s the saddest thing about it. We’ve got to start becoming brothers and friends again. It don’t matter how many noughts you put on [a cheque].

“I don’t care about getting Oasis back together. But he prods me and I prod him and I like winding him up,” Liam explained when he was asked if the constant Twitter jibes are detrimental to the band ever reforming. “I’m just reminding him that I’m right here cos his head’s up a few people’s arses.

“Music’s about having a laugh and life’s about having a laugh. People seem to putting out a tune and taking a cheque and going back to a big house. I like taking the piss out of my brother who thinks his shit don’t stink. I know it’s childish, but I don’t care.”
