Manchester music legend Liam Gallagher is riding high on a tidal wave of success at the moment and has been for the past year. However, regardless of his triumph as a solo performer, he has always remained adamant that he'd be on board for a full-scale Oasis reunion...well, until now.
The former frontman curled one out all over hopeful Oasis fans' proverbial picnic during an interview with the Daily Star, in which he said that he thought the band was over for good.
"I think Oasis is over, it's sad but that's the way it is," he said, citing brother Noel as the reason.
"At the moment, I don't want to be nowhere near that guy, because he's not the guy that was in Oasis, I'm still the same guy that was in Oasis. He's a bit pompous and a bit of a snob," he continued.
"We were a naughty band that liked having a laugh, he seems to be hanging about with, like, the Queen these days. I actually don't think Oasis would have him, let alone him have Oasis."
He added: "He'd only want to get some girl in playing scissors at the back or someone fucking eating candy floss.
"We were a great band and we shouldn't have split up. People say I split Beady Eye up for financial reasons; you'll find Noel Gallagher split up Oasis for financial reasons and glory fucking reasons."
Liam also revealed that he's busy making a second solo album, which might include a bit of a throwback.
He explained: "The first song that I wrote was 'Little James', which was about my stepson at the time, he was called James and he was little.
"I might do a reprise, a new version called 'Big James'."
On the other side of the Gallagher brotherhood, Noel has been similarly pessimistic about a reunion.
"I've been very consistent about it," Noel told Q last year. "I don't need the money, I don't need the glory, I don't need to relive the memories. If I was to get Oasis back together tomorrow and then do a tour, I'd have a hundred million dollars in the bank but I'd have learnt fuck all.
"I'd have actually wasted a year of being in the studio with a person like David Holmes. It would be the death of me as a person."
Gallagher added: "I could understand if we were a band who'd been going for five years and were just at our peak, but Oasis have got no unfinished business. We did it. We fucking did it, and then some. It's done."
