While his brother and former Oasis partner Noel is very vocal, Liam has been pretty much mute, allowing his brother to trash his name over and over again. That is apart from the occasional tweet where Liam calls Noel a potato.

The silence is over though. Liam has finally given an interview talking everything from the split of Beady Eye to new music on the horizon. While the full interview isn’t available online just yet, we’ve pulled some of the best quotes from the interview and put them below to show that despite the silence, Liam hasn’t changed one bit.
“I was running on the Heath and I thought, ‘That looks like a nice tree, I’m going to climb that fucking tree.’ Climbed it and sat there with my hood up for about 10 minutes.”
While that’s not necessarily a conventional Gallagher thing to say, it’s completely fucking spun so we’re going to go ahead and call Liam Gallagher discussing his new found penchant for climbing trees one of the most Gallagher things in the interview.
“You have appropriate furniture, appropriate kitchens, appropriate red wine that Bono’s recommended. And Damon Albarn becomes your mate. Fair dos, but not for me.”
Here, Liam discusses fame, fortune and how they can change people, with specific mention of Noel and his multi-million dollar home. In Liam’s opinion, there’s no way you can be the same person once you’re surrounded with the ‘appropriate’ necessities. Character comes from making do, right?
“I got told off for throwing stones at his windows pissed-up, asking him to chuck down some bacon rolls.”
Considering he lives down the road from International super chef Jamie Oliver, we’re guessing Liams house would be worth a few bob as well. But by the sounds of things, he’s not really fitting in with his high class neighbours.
“You won’t be scratching your chin. It’s not Pink Floyd and it ain’t Radiohead. It’s chin-out music.”
For sure one of the most Gallagher things of all time, let alone in this interview, are his standards of comparison. We know his music is chin music, and it’s not Radiohead or Pink Floyd. Does that actually narrow it down in any way? They feel like unreliable units of measurement to us.
“Lots of people say I need to chill out about Noel. Not until they stop Twitter. That cunt will always get it from me”
The whole interview is peppered with hilarious and sometimes brutal jabs at his brother. This is one of them that shows there’s no way Oasis are getting back together because Liam refuses to stop throwing shit at Noel on Twitter. Want an Oasis reunion? Better wait for Twitter to crash and burn first. Any day now.
“Music isn’t inspired by music, I don’t think.”
Interviewers, scrap any future questions you have about what music bands are inspired by because according to Gallagher, musicians aren’t inspired by any music. “It’s influenced by life,” Liam reckons.
“To have good music you have to have an interesting, varied life. Shit music comes from boring lives.”
“I can count my friends on no hands.”
You’d think that someone from one of the biggest rock bands of all time would have more friends than they know what to do with but apparently not. Liam is, “a lone wolf” which apparently is exactly the way he likes it.
“He’s fucking top. He gave me a pint of lactose-free milk for nothing the other day.”
Oh, he might’ve forgot to mention one friend apart from his wife and manager Debbie Gwyther. He’s a big fan of his milk man. Liam Gallagher befriending his milk man over a free pint of lactose-free milk is peak Gallagher.
