Liam Gallagher blasts Noel for snubbing Supersonic film
Liam Gallagher has blasted his brother Noel Gallagher for skipping the launch of the new Oasis documentary 'Supersonic' but is sure he'll be the first person to take credit for its success.
The 49-year-old guitarist didn't attend a special screening of the film in London or the premiere in the siblings' hometown of Manchester on Sunday night (02.10.16) seemingly because he wanted to avoid his younger brother who he has been feuding with since he quit the band in 2009.
Liam, 44, delighted fans by going to both events, flying up to Manchester by helicopter after appearing at the event in the UK capital with his girlfriend Debbie Gwyther and sons Lennon and Gene.
The 'Champagne Supernova' singer - who was joined in the chopper by Debbie - slammed Noel for not supporting the project which he was responsible for starting, but is sure the songwriter will be hogging the limelight if the movie wins an award.
When asked at the London screening of 'Supersonic' if he was disappointed that Noel no showed, he said: "No, he does what he does and I do what I do. I'd guess he'll be there if it wins an award though, won't he? This probably ain't f***ing A-list enough for him, if it gets a BAFTA or whatever award he'll be there won't he with his f***ing shandy mates!"
Liam is pleased with how the film - which charts the rock group's incredible journey from humble beginnings in Manchester to becoming the biggest band in the world - has turned out but insists he would never have considered making a documentary if Noel and his management hadn't made plans with director Matt Whitecross.
He told BANG Showbiz: "Yeah I am pleased it's out, but I guess that's what happens when you make a film. I wasn't arsed if it was done or arsed if it come out, it wasn't my idea. But I am happy with it ... It shows that we had good songs, good attitude, we didn't give a f**k and we looked cool and we told it how was. We weren't plastic and we weren't afraid to have an opinion ... His [Noel's] songs were great and I'm great. It was the songs, it was my voice, it was the attitude and it was the fans, it was the people who opened their ears and opened their minds that made it. If you haven't got people lending you their ears then you're just doing it for nothing."
