MSN Does Not Like Oasis...Who Cares?
Lead Singer Disease
In England, they still pay attention to what rock stars say. Which may have been the whole problem with Liam Gallagher, lead singer of Oasis, in the first place.
Gallagher and his brother Noel (who writes all the songs) are world-champion bigmouths, and the British press loves — even now, many years past their days as the U.K.'s biggest band — to transcribe every word.
Talking smack about other bands, heaving praise at their own or merely bloviating about TV, soccer and politics, the brothers Gallagher have a lot to say, and all of it is informed by monstrous egoism.
But where Noel has both musical talent and wit, Liam is just a vain blowhard, as evidenced by such textbook LSD shenanigans as walking out on live shows (before and during), punching out paparazzi, demanding that his songs get included on albums, marrying a model-actress, marrying a fellow pop star, saying his band is the best in the world, saying he's the only good thing about his band, calling his audience unprintable names, etc.
One can only hope there's an LSD quarantine in effect for Great Britain.
