Oasis Split Gave Liam New Freedom
Liam Gallagher has declared that Oasis' split is the "best thing that's ever happened", after realising it has given him more freedom.
The singer, who is currently promoting his Pretty Green clothing label in the US, told the New York Times he is now relishing his post-Oasis career after initally being "gutted"about the break-up.
"In hindsight it was the best thing that’s ever happened, because we're free to do whatever we want," said Gallagher, who confirmed in the interview he has not spoken to his brother and former bandmate Noel since the break-up last August.
Meanwhile, Gallagher, who recently announced his new band would be called Beady Eye, bemoaned the lack of snappy dressers around at the moment.
He said: "Not a lot of people look cool these days, like my cool. Everybody plays it down, don’t they?"
And he added that he only wanted those who were cool enough to wear his Pretty Green clothes.
"I don't want just anybody wearing it," said the singer. "And people go, 'Oh, beggars can't be choosers.' Well, I ain't a beggar, you know what I mean?"
Meanwhile, Pretty Green recently recruited Paul Weller to design clothes for the label.
