Liam Gallagher Sues Noel Gallagher Over Oasis Breakup

Brothers Continue to Rock Separately

Serious sibling beef, or well-timed publicity stunt aimed at keeping music journalists (both in the U.K. and abroad) employed? With the Gallagher brothers, who can tell any more? The facts are these: family dinners are about to get even more awkward, as it was announced today that Liam Gallagher (he of Beady Eye) is suing ex-Oasis bandmate Noel Gallagher (he of Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds) for comments made during Oasis’ breakup in 2009.

Whoa guys! We—as much as anyone—would have loved to have kept hearing live renditions of “Wonderwall” well into our golden years, but what ever happened to not looking back in anger? (Don’t!) “I have taken legal action against Noel Gallagher for statements he made during the Electric Cinema press conference on July 6 during which he claimed Oasis pulled out of the 2009 V Festival Chelmsford gig because I had a hangover," says Liam via press release. "That is a lie and I want Oasis fans, and others who were at V, to know the truth."

But while pissed…(err…angry that is) Liam’s not looking for a payday—just an apology. “I am used to being called all sort of things by Noel and I have in the past said things about him, but what Noel has alleged this time went way beyond rock-and-roll banter and questioned my professionalism."

Liam may have to wait awhile for Noel to eat crow, as the there is no response from the other brother’s camp at this time.

Interestingly enough, Noel recently told Absolute Radio that leaving Oasis might have been a regrettable decision, and hinted at the desire for potential reunion, saying, “It was a hasty decision I've got to say, and we could maybe have all gone off and done other things for a few years. In my own head the 2015, 20-year anniversary of (What's The Story) Morning Glory? is looming and we could have maybe come back, made a new album and played that album in its entirety and gone and been the greatest thing ever, but there you go.”

We’ll drink to that.

I would say that this was outrageous of him. He shouldn’t have brought up this issue which happened so long ago. This would only make this even worse for them as they are a family. I don’t think that this was an issue which has to be made this serious.  Chrome Crashing Windows 10

With a lawsuit hanging over his head, Noel Gallagher has admitted he lied about some of the details surrounding Oasis’ split in 2009. In a webchat on Monday, Noel conceded that brother Liam had laryngitis and not just a hangover when he cancelled what would have been their final gig, at the Chelmsford V festival. photo editing websites
