Liam Gallagher responds to Kasabian saying they are ‘saving guitar music’
Ex-Oasis frontman also hits out at U2 once again
Liam Gallagher has responded to Kasabian‘s recent claims that their new album was “saving guitar music”.
Speaking about their latest record ‘For Crying Out Loud’ earlier this year, Kasabian’s Serge Pizzorno told Q: “It’s about saving guitar music from the the abyss! Because it’s gone.”
Responding in a new NME interview, Liam said: “I like Kasabian, but it’s not, is it?”
He went on to add: “There’s a lot of people who look the part but rock’n’roll’s not just about the music and a look, it’s about what you say. A lot of these bands, you read their interviews and you slip into a coma. Everyone seems to be wrapped up in cotton wool and not prepared to make mistakes because if they step out of line they think their little career will go. Everyone’s hanging on to their career by their nails, and I find that very sad, because if that’s what you’ve come into it for you’re gonna fall flat on your face. You should come into it to kick open the fuckin’ doors. The shit that’s on the radio shouldn’t be on the radio. There’s a lot of crap out there.”
The former Oasis frontman also used the interview to once again hit out at U2, describing his song ‘You Better Run, You Better Hide’ as a rebuke to “every little shitbag wannabe rock star who thinks they’re doing this rock’n’roll business a service, because there’s a lot of them out there that ain’t.
