It seems that when he is no longer of this planet, Liam Gallagher‘s musical legacy will live on through his two sons. Gallagher has explained that the family bug hasn’t skipped a generation and both his boys are showing very encouraging signs that they will be able to carry the family name in a similar manner to their father and uncle.
During an interview with The Independent On Sunday, Gallagher Sr has said he’d highly support his offspring should they choose to follow the rockstar path. When asked whether he’s recommend life in a band to his sons, Gallagher replied, “Without a doubt. I’d recommend it to anyone. It’s the best gig in the world, man.”
Apparently 13-year-old Lennon, whose mother is Patsy Kensit, is turning into an exceptional axe god, and his 11-year-old half-brother Gene, the son of Liam and Nicole Appleton, is quickly learning his way around a drumkit.
“Gene is up in his room drumming every day. Oh, mate, he loves it. Lennon does guitar lessons in school, and fancies himself as a bit of a singer,” Gallagher explained. Lennon seems to be picking up his talent very quickly, but there’s still a bit to go before he’s officially cutting his dad’s grass. “I don’t know [if he’s got my skills], mate. His life’s a bit easier than mine – he’s got to wait for something to piss him off.”
Gallagher goes on to add that he isn’t too sure where he got that anger, but it sure hasn’t gone away:
“I’ve still got the arse. And that’s what comes out in the voice … Fuck knows [where the anger came from], man. But I can do both – I can sing beautiful at home, but when it comes to guitars and live, when you’re in a rock ‘n’ roll band, you’ve got to be belting it out.”
There’s one unmentioned Gallagher child, 13-year-old Molly, who was conceived during an affair with UK singer Lisa Moorish. So who knows? Maybe one day there will be a band with more Gallaghers in it than Oasis.
