Liam Gallagher Plays New Song On ‘Later… With Jools Holland’
Liam Gallagher has appeared on the latest episode of Later… With Jools Holland. The singer gave fans another taste of his upcoming album, C’Mon You Know (out 27 May), by playing the new track, World’s In Need. Liam also played his previous single, Better Days.
Also appearing on the episode were Oumou Sangaré, Charlotte Adigéry & Bolis Pupul and Sinead O’Brien.
Liam has also been in the news this week thanks to an auction of Oasis memorabilia. A guitar that was damaged during the backstage argument between Oasis‘ Liam and Noel Gallagher that led to the band’s break-up sold for £325,000.
The red Gibson ES-355 guitar was broken backstage at the Rock en Seine festival in Paris in August 2009, where the band cancelled their set at the last minute after Noel left the band with immediate effect.
The auction was held by the Artpèges gallery, with founder Jonathan Berg saying that the guitar represented “a cult moment” in modern musical history, adding: “Things had been brewing for a while between the two brothers. It exploded backstage, one of Noel’s guitars got broken and that led to the group breaking up.”
The gallery’s co-founder Arthur Perault said that Noel got rid of the guitar in the end because “it reminds him too much of Oasis”, according to The Guardian.
Liam Gallagher recently said that he hasn’t seen his brother and Oasis bandmate Noel in about 10 years. The Britpop icons split up in 2009, and despite countless rumours of the band’s imminent reunion, the Gallagher brothers are still not on speaking terms.
In a new interview with Esquire, Liam revealed: “The last time I saw Noel was at a football match about 10 years ago. It’s a shame, isn’t it?
“The good times outweigh the bad times,” he added. “I think it’s best to just leave it at that.”
