Oasis' Liam: We're Better Than U2 Now

By Paul Davis


Oasis bad boy Liam Gallagher has taken a swipe at rivals U2, blasting "We're
still more important than them."

The star was speaking after his band sold-out 80,000 tickets for their
concert spectacular in London in just ONE hour. He said: "These are the
fastest selling gigs we have done.

"We are going to f***ing have it at those gigs, because the kids deserve it,
for still being with us. In 10 year's time, we'll still be rocking and
putting on shows. That's what counts. We are still more important than U2
or R.E.M."

But one of Gallagher's old friends, Stephen Murray who used to party with
Oasis for many years, said: "It's a shame Liam is saying this. How can he be
so disrespectful to U2? Liam's mouth seems to get bigger when he has got a
record coming out. Let's face it Bono must be laughing to himself. After all
is said and done U2 are known all over the world. Bono is a music giant, but
Oasis? They will always be known as the group who ripped off the Beatles'
songs."

This is too damn amusing to even annoy me. Every time I hear about Liam Gallagher I think of the SNL sketch about the boys. "Look, I got you a new Beatles songbook."

Liam has a right to his opinion - as stupid as it may be.

Hey! Trip me out...when did you join the U2 community? =D You're from my other universe, the Pearl Jam one!

I think Liam just likes the attention. He and Bono are mates, it wouldn't surprise me if Bono was even on this big silly joke. You've gotta be really stupid to think Oasis is more important than U2!

The silly bloke. ;)

And I've been in this community for ages, my dear...aaaages. It'd be a crime to be in the PJ community and not here. And we all know the last thing I'd want to do is commit a crime. :D

I don't care what the circumstances of Liam's comments were (ie, if him and Bono are in cahoots or not) - this posting gave me a damn good laugh! Personally, if they were both in on it, I think that was the point. Well done!

Typical drivel out of the mouth of Liam Gallagher.
