Liam Gallagher's Version of Marriage Counselling
He's the big-mouthed Valleys rock ’n’ roller whose wild backstage antics are second only to his hair.
Now, in a new book called Demons And Cocktails, sacked Stereophonics drummer Stuart Cable lifts the lid on life on the road with the multi-million-selling Cwmaman band, from the triumphant highs of their Cardiff Castle concert to the desperate lows of his bitter split from the group and subsequent downward spiral into drink and drugs.
In the first of an exclusive two-parter, Nathan Bevan tunes in to find out exactly WHAT made Tom Jones threaten to knock out Mark Lamarr and WHY you shouldn’t accept marriage counselling from Liam Gallagher.
Stuart became close friends with mono-browed Manchester brothers the Gallaghers – worryingly close, in Liam’s case.
“I was due to play a Teenage Cancer Trust concert at the Albert Hall and was running late as usual when one of the crew greeted me outside the dressing room we were sharing with Oasis.
‘Thank God you’re here, he’s not happy, he began.
‘Who?’ I asked, thinking Kelly was having a cob on again about my punctuality.
‘Liam,’ he replied. ‘He’s waiting for you. He’s refusing to shake anyone’s hand until you turn up.’
When I walked in, Liam yelled: ‘Here’s my man, Stuey. Stuey, come here.’
He hugged me and we sat down at the back of the room where it got even more bizarre.
He had heard that my marriage was on the rocks and turned into my own private agony aunt.
Since his own marriage had also broken up earlier that year, I assumed he now thought he was an expert on the subject of divorce.
Not sure about that, though, given that the advice he gave me was: ‘The first year is the hardest. After that it’s a piece of cake, a walk in the park. Let’s have a beer.’
That was Liam’s version of marriage counselling, but I bet there’s not many people who can boast they’ve had that.”
