Oasis - The Last Real Rock N Roll Heroes Left
Jon McClure has branded touring pals Oasis “the last real rock ’n’ roll heroes we’ve got left”.
The Reverend And The Makers mainman, famed for rattling off opinions just like the Gallaghers, supported the Manchester icons this summer.
And Jon, 27, reckons Liam, 36, and Noel, 42, are more powerful than even Gordon Brown, 58.
He told me: “I think the celebrity pop bubble is close to bursting now. I get on great with the Gallaghers – they are the last real rock ’n’ roll heroes we’ve got left.
“They are the only people who aren’t afraid to speak their mind, no matter what the consequences. They should be applauded.
“Even the Prime Minister isn’t allowed to to say what he likes, but Oasis can.”
The Makers have been doing guerrilla busking gigs around the country this week to promote second album A French Kiss In The Chaos.
Jon said: “It’s good not telling people where we are going, then just turning up outside some building. It’s about giving something back to people who don’t live in Shoreditch.
“It’s an experience – like your paper the Daily Star, most readers are from the North, not Shoreditch.”
Jon also has several side projects on the go, including Mongrel.
He explained: “I like putting different stuff out under different titles as I get bored.”
Just don’t expect to see him at a Kings Of Leon show.
He said: “Kings Of Leon are hail-ed as gods but their latest album sounds like Bon Jovi.”
