Liam Gallagher has responded to the speculation linking him with a potential Oasis reunion at Glastonbury later this summer and fans aren’t going to be happy.
There has been talk for some time of a possible reconciliation between Liam and his brother Noel but so far nothing has been forthcoming.
The prospect of peace between the pair looked increasingly unlikely after Liam openly criticised Noel for failing to attend a recent charity gig in aid of the victims of the Manchester terror attack.
But with the pair of siblings, there was always a suspicion that, at some point down the line, they would find a way to put their differences aside and reform Oasis for the likely cash cow UK tour that would follow.
That doesn’t look likely to be happening any time soon though, after Gallagher squashed the idea during an interview with Chris Evans on BBC Radio 2.
“Oasis are done and have been for a long, long time,” he said. “A lot of people think we get on really but we’re not fond of each other. He’s the middle child and I came along and spoiled the party.
“I’m better looking, a better singer and I’m cooler all round.”
Liam also used the interview to heap more criticism on Noel over no-show at the recent fundraiser.
“He [Noel] wants to surround himself with little yes men that he can hire and fire whenever he wants, but he’s not getting that with me. It doesn’t matter about me digging him out or underlining the lack of empathy and sympathy that he has for people in Manchester. That’s got nothing to do with me. Oasis is done.”
This comes despite reports suggesting Noel had donated all of the royalties received from “Don’t Look Back In Anger” to the fund.
Despite the harsh words directed at his sibling, Liam didn’t completely close the door to a reunion.
“Never say never, we’ll see how it goes but now it’s billions of light years away… if we were to do it I’d be there and I’d deliver it.”
So there is some hope, however small it may be, for Oasis fans.
