Is Liam Gallagher Returning to Music?
Outside of calling his brother Noel a "potato" and making homophobic taunts at Russian soccer fans, we haven't really heard much from former Oasis singer Liam Gallagher since the 2014 breakup of Beady Eye. But that may be changing. Yesterday (July 21), he hinted that a return may be on the way.
He tweeted, "Be afraid you so called troubadours and you plastic rock n rollers give your paper crown 1 last cuddle coz I'm on my way LG X."
Gallagher formed Beady Eye in 2009 with three of his former bandmates in Oasis. After two albums, both of which reached the Top Five in the U.K., the group broke up, with Liam simply declaring that they are "no longer." A month later, guitarist Andy Bell told NME that the band "just sort of ran its course really. Liam had been pretty quiet for a while, and them he just let us know that his heart wasn't really in it any more."
Since then, there has been almost nothing in the way of new music from him. Almost exactly a year ago -- July 29, 2015 -- he was captured performing a new, untitled song at a pub in County Mayo, Ireland, but that's about it. He's been rumored to be working with Lee Mavers of the La's, but as of now, nothing has come of it.
As for the possibility of an Oasis reunion, there's really no chance of that happening given that Noel recently revealed that he hasn't been on speaking terms with his brother since 1996, a full 13 years before the band broke up. “I tolerated him up until he stopped being able to sing," Noel said. "When singing becomes shouting — I switched off then. I was just amassing money.”
