Liam Slams Doherty and Chaplin
LIAM GALLAGHER has taken a pop at recent rehab residents TOM CHAPLIN and PETE DOHERTY – branding them posh lightweights.
The OASIS heavyweight says today's rock stars need to learn a thing or two from veterans like him and brother NOEL.
Liam is irritated with Pete and KEANE frontman Tom for having to seek help for their battle with drugs — because it is not rock 'n' roll.
He said: "None of us have ever been in The Priory, like all these little idiots today. They have one little line, they have one burn and they're all in rehab.
"That Pete Doherty is cabbaged already. And it's like, 'How old are you? Priory at 27 years of age? You idiot.'
"Posh boys can't take drugs, man. They're lightweights."
Liam's comments could not have come at a more sensitive time — and I hope his tongue is slightly in his cheek.
Tom is just back on the road with Keane after completing five weeks at The Priory for addiction to cocaine and alcohol.
Pete continues to battle a chronic crack and heroin addiction.
But worse — Tom will be at the Q Awards sat just a few feet away from Liam, who I'm sure will taunt him mercilessly.
Liam says he still likes to have the odd messy night out himself — even though he has calmed down with his fiancée NICOLE APPLETON and their son Gene. He also has son Lennon by PATSY KENSIT.
The singer said: "Obviously I don't go out as much as I used to because I'm in with my kids and missus and get a buzz off them. But when I do go out I still have a good time.
"We don't go out and say, 'Hey man, we're dads so we're gonna take it easy!' We'll still go boozing for a couple of days, drink anything — Guinness, lager, champagne, wine — and get high, get plastered."
Liam believes when Oasis were at their maddest in the early days, they surpassed any other band when it came to larging it.
He added: "It was as wild as you could imagine. It was living life on the edge. There were no safety nets.
"But we weren't GUNS N' ROSES wild because we're a different kind of band. All these bands who are rock 'n' roll are just daft. We never fell over drunk and all that because we like our clothes too much!
"And I've never poured Guinness or Jack Daniels on my head because we're not Beavis and Butt-Head!"
Oasis are about to release their Greatest Hits album Stop The Clocks. And Liam reckons life could not be better.
He said: "I've got two beautiful kids, I've got money in the bank, a nice house, a nice missus and my mum and brothers are happy. It could be worse."
