Dave Grohl Says His Favourite Moment Of Glastonbury Was Hanging With Liam Gallagher

One of these days there might be a time when all celebrity beefs are squashed and they all get on.

"Easy for you to say," you might think, but it might be nice to live in a world where we're not subjected to the verbal back and forth between musicians.

Until then, though, we can seek solitude in a former '90s bad boy, who famously didn't like pretty much anyone, hanging out with the Foo Fighters before their headline set at Glastonbury.

"You know my favourite moment of the whole night?" Foos frontman Dave Grohl told NME.

"Five minutes before we go onstage, Liam fuckin' Gallagher wanders in.

"He goes straight over to Taylor and says, 'That fuckin' song - 'Range Rover Bitch'. Then he starts singing a song from Taylor's solo record.

"Then he turns round to me and goes, 'And your shit's alright, too'.

"Taylor had nerves about tonight because everyone made such a big deal about this show, but he walked onstage with the biggest fucking smile."

That's nice, init? Chances are they shared some cigarettes and alcohol, before walking on stage for what seemed like a masterplan, with Grohl coming to Glastonbury two years after a broken leg stopped them headlining.

The frontman is clearly a fan of LG's former band, Oasis, and even covered the 2005 single 'Lyla' from their sixth album Don't Believe the Truth.

The feeling appears to be mutual, too, as Jo Whiley told Gallagher after his set on The Other Stage that Foo Fighters were unable to get in to see it, and he said "I like Dave, man."

Taylor Hawkins, Foo's drummer and the man Gallagher praised, also previously spoke highly of the singer after the release of Supersonic, a documentary on Oasis' first few years as a band.

"I'll tell you something about Liam Gallagher," Hawkins told NME. "That guy is such a fucking good rock singer. I watched that Oasis documentary the other day, and there's this part were he just sings 'Champagne Supernova' in one take in its entirety, and you just go 'oh fuck', you know, the reason we all liked him in the first place is because he's a fucking good singer. He can fucking sing a rock 'n' roll song, dude."

He added: "I hope him and his brother can get their shit together. I mean come on boys, everyone wants to see Oasis again, give us a break - come on.

"I had a couple of great nights with them and Liam back in the day, back in the '90s.

"Every time I see him I get a big hug. I love him. I think he's one of the great frontmen over the last 20 years, no question."
