Liam Gallagher Opens Up on the Fallout After Noel's Departure: 'My Life Caved In'

In a candid interview, iconic rocker Liam Gallagher has bared his soul about the tumultuous aftermath of his brother Noel's departure from the legendary band Oasis. The notorious siblings, who had once been inseparable musical collaborators, faced a dramatic split in 2009 during a backstage altercation at the Rock en Seine festival in Paris.

Revisiting the painful episode in a recent conversation with The Guardian, the 51-year-old singer-songwriter expressed the profound impact of Noel's decision to leave the band, stating that his life "caved in" at that moment. Liam expressed surprise at Noel attributing the band's demise to his rowdy behavior, emphasizing that such behavior had been a hallmark of Oasis since its inception.

"That's what made Oasis what it was. I wasn't any different, but all of a sudden, he's turned into Ronan Keating or some soft c***, going: 'We can't have that behavior,'" remarked Liam, defending the band's rebellious spirit.

Noel Gallagher's departure was officially announced in a statement on Oasis's website, citing an inability to work with Liam any longer. Noel went on to form Noel Gallagher and the High Flying Birds, achieving both commercial and critical success.

Liam, on the other hand, described the aftermath as an "absolute nightmare." Stripped of management, office, and support, he found himself in a challenging situation while Noel continued to thrive with a well-established team. Reflecting on that period, Liam admitted, "I could barely tie my shoelace, let alone run my business or my life. All that support was taken away, but little Noely G had it all still there."

When questioned about hypothetical regrets, Liam didn't hold back, expressing a desire to confront both Noel and the band's manager, Marcus Russell. "Yes, I'd fill 'em both in... They threw me under the f***ing bus. All my life caved in," he declared.

Despite the ongoing feud, Liam remains a staunch supporter of Oasis's music. He is gearing up for an arena tour where he will perform the band's 1994 debut album, Definitely Maybe, and is set to release a joint album with John Squire of The Stone Roses later this year. Addressing concerns about the band's legacy, Liam assured fans, "There's no way I'm letting Oasis turn into one of these [bands] where you just wrap an album in cellophane every 10 years."
