Liam Gallagher Wishes Brother Noel A Happy Birthday And Is Actually Nice To Him

Liam Gallagher Wishes Brother Noel A Happy Birthday And Is Actually Nice To Him

Are our eyes playing tricks on us here?

The relationship between Noel and Liam Gallagher has been heavily reported since the early 90s, as the rocky sibling rivalry makes for great entertainment.

They made waves in 1994 when Definitely Maybe became the fastest selling British debut album, and their follow up What's the Story (Morning Glory)? rocketed them to dizzy heights, culminating in two gigs at Knebworth.

During that period, in 1995, a single called 'Wibbling Rivalry' was released. There was no music on the tape, but rather an interview in which the brothers argue about an incident on a ferry.

Since then, well, we've all come to know that they're not exactly the best of mates.

2009 brought the demise of Oasis, as a fight meant Noel felt he couldn't work with Liam any longer. They went their separate ways, LG creating Beady Eye and Noely G starting Noel Gallagher's High Flying Birds.

Beady Eye split after two albums after underwhelming success, prompting Liam to go solo. However, while he's been away from music he has kept himself busy on Twitter, often tweeting about Manchester City and trolling his big brother.

He's labelled Noel a 'potato' and called him out on many things.

Recently he took to the social media site to say confirm that his sibling hadn't invited him to his 'cocaine themed' 50th birthday party, and that not even their mother Peggy had been offered the chance to go.

Despite this, today, on The Chief's 50th, Liam wished him a good one and quoted an old Oasis song in doing so.

'Stay Young' was a B-side to the 1997 single 'D'You Know What I Mean?' and featured on the compilation album The Masterplan.

Liam has often said that he'd reform Oasis in a heartbeat, so we guess this is a step in the right direction.

However, tomorrow marks the first of his solo shows, as he kicks off a short run of gigs in his home town of Manchester. It'll be the first chance to listen to his new material properly, as well as some old songs.

Of the old Oasis songs he told NME: "Every one I'm doing, I'm doing because I like singing it," going on to reveal that 'Rock & Roll Star', 'Slide Away', 'Be Here Now', 'D'You Know What I Mean?', 'Rockin' Chair' and 'Morning Glory' will be played.

Not bad.

Happy 50th, Noel, and good luck, Liam.
