Liam Gallagher On Forming “Supergroup” With Stone Roses Member
Liam Gallagher has suggested that he has talked to former Stone Roses guitarist John Squire about forming a “supergroup”.
In a new interview with Matt Wilkinson on Apple Music 1 for the Home Sessions series, the former Oasis frontman confirmed that he’d be keen to work with Squire again at “some point”.

Liam brought Squire out on stage to perform the Oasis classic, Champagne Supernova, at his pair of Knebworth shows in June, echoing Squire’s role when Oasis played the venue back in 1996. After the shows, Liam tweeted, “Super group incoming LG JS. (sic)”
When asked if the group was likely to happen, Liam was optimistic: “Yeah. Serious, man. But we’ve got things to do first, and he’s got things to clear up and that. But yeah, I’m definitely going to do summat at some point.”
Pressed if they’d confirmed anything, Liam said, “Maybe, yeah. Probably did that at Knebworth and that, I think, if I can remember anything about it. But, no. There’s talk about summat. Maybe. But no rush. He’s my man, I love him. So if he’s got any tunes that need singing, I’m the boy, mate. (sic)”
Liam – who has just turned 50 – also spoke about his pre-show and on-stage routine, revealing, “It’s half a bottle of brandy before I go on. I have kind of backed it off now. But the last year I’ve been walloping the brandy with honey and hot water, and going on a little bit…
“I’ve been getting a bit battered on stage recently. Not battered as much but just… I wouldn’t say nerves, but I think as you get older, you do get a little bit more… You’re not as cocksure. So, I’ve been having a brandy just to chill me out a bit.
