"It’s a shame, but that’s life", shrugs Liam over Oasis split
Friday 09 October 2009
Liam Gallagher has broken his silence for the first time since brother Noel quit Oasis and admitted the band is “no longer”.
The frontman has kept a low profile since guitarist Noel walked out moments before a festival show last month, blaming Liam's behaviour for his exit.
Now the singer has said the band will not continue, adding: “It's a shame, but that's life.”
Liam said: “Oasis is no longer. I think we all know that, so that's done.
“We had a good run at it. The thing about Oasis is ... we ended Oasis. No one ended it for us. Which was pretty, kind of ... cool.”
Liam, who launched fashion label Pretty Green earlier this year, said he was now focusing on his next move in the music world. He said all his efforts were on working out what he will do.
“I'm thinking of what the next step is musically, which is all my mind's on,” he said.
The 37-year-old singer revealed he wants to bide his time before revealing his side of the split because he does not want his “Oasis headstone” to be “spoken anger”.
Noel had already made it clear before he walked out on the band in August prior to the Paris show that he hoped to record a solo album. Liam said: “People will be able to buy his records, people will be able to buy our records, so everyone's happy.”
Liam — often accused of a lack of commitment to the band by his brother — said he had fond memories of touring with the band. And he said he missed being on the gig circuit.
“We've always had a lot of fun. I've always had a lot of fun. That's why it was never hard work for me. It was a joy and it was always a bit of a bummer when the tour ended. You know, it was great. Obviously you've got to get back and see the missus and the kids and all that, nothing lasts forever, but it was never: ‘Uh, f***, I need to get off the tour because my head's up my a***'.”
Liam said he had no doubt he would have some sort of musical future: “I'll be doing music to the day I die.”
