      Andy Bell Interview - Beady Eye, Ride and more

    The Beady Eye guitarist reveals all about  the band's difficult summer and rumours of a possible reformation for Ride ahead of their Dublin gigs

    To say that it’s been a turbulent time for Beady Eye over the last few months is a bit of an understatement.

    While the world was busy focusing on the break up of Liam Gallagher’s marriage amid a love-child scandal, the band members were hoping that Gem Archer would survive.

    After falling down the stairs at home Archer then managed to break his leg just by standing on it.

    Just this week Archer was well enough to set foot back in the rehearsal studio, hopefully putting an end to Beady Eye’s bad times just before their two Dublin gigs at the Olympia on Thursday and Friday.

    And Andy Bell for one is glad to be back concentrating on the music.
    He said: “Yesterday was his first day and he is actually very heartwarming thing to see the guy playing his guitar again.

    “He’s really missed it and we have missed him playing and rehearsing. It’s briolliant to have him back, it has been a weird summer, you know?”

    “I have never had someone close to me to go through head trauma and  a broken leg too - you learn a lot because you are constantly asking questions and finding out the progress. You become like a  mini doctor or something.

    “Everything is great and he has grown a proper beard while he has been out of action. He looks cool.”

    Andy said that being in Oasis meant the Beady Eye band members have already been well prepared to expect the unexpected.
    He revealed: “Everything seemed to go mental for a while for Liam and Gem but we’re all pretty used to drama - the Oasis years gave us a bit of an immunity to drama in a way.

    “In the middle of one of those times you do tend to go into yourself and hunker down, get through it and come out the other side.

    “Gem had his accident on August 1 when we were all still on holiday.   We all scooted back from our holidays to London to see him as at that time it seemed pretty serious. I was really scared so I wanted to get straight down there.

    “Since then we have been day by day, week by week and then before we knew it two or three months had gone by. We started thinking about band things two or three weeks ago as we had dropped everything to concentrate on what’s really important.

    “But yesterday it felt like things were back to normal, everyone is on good form and doing great.

    “It’s a good time to be in the band.”

    Some of Andy’s fans might be a bit disappointed to hear that as the regular rumours of a Ride reunion have not yet proved fruitful.
    But he insists that some day he and Mark Gardener, Steve Queralt and Loz Tolbert will reform - not just now though.

    Andy said: “It’s not something I am planning to do in the next while because I like to do one thing at a time. That’s how I work as a person - I kind of do one thing and move onto the next when its done.”

    In fact, the Ride lads do go for the odd pint together as everything that happened way back when is water under the bridge.

    Andy said: “We are all pals - the argument that broke the band up, if you compare that to an Oasis scale it’s like  they had three of them a day! But that was a different time, a whole lifetime ago and all those disagreements are all patched up now.

    “They are all my oldest friends, me, Mark and Steve were all at school together. I met Mark when he was 12 or 13 in the playground when he was body-popping on a bit of lino. I was really small kid with glasses and a guitar.

    “And then the Smiths came out and then suddenly the speccy kid with the guitar became the cool guy. Mark wanted to learn guitar and I taught him and that’s how we became mates. And when you’re friends for that long you stay friends.”

    So does this apply to Noel Gallagher too then?

    Andy said: “It definitely applies to Noel - I’ve got a lot of affection for the guy, he is so talented and brilliant to be in a band with.

    “Anything that went down between me and Noel was never anything serious. His problem was with Liam and Liam’s problem was with him. I have seen Noel since and the two of us are cool. I am completely cool with him and hopefully he is cool with me.”

    Andy Bell recently married a Dublin girl and spends a lot of time here so as a special treat there are two Beady Eye aftershows going on in Dublin.
    Paul Gallagher and Andy’s brother-in-law Arveene will be the DJs for the nights - the Thursday will be at the Grand Social and the second is at an undisclosed venue which will be announced next week. And Andy reckons the band will be in attendance.

    He said: “I do a bit of DJing myself so you never know - I  love Dublin, I spend a lot of time there and from a band point of view we played the Olympia last time and we were really good gigs.

    “We’re looking forward to coming back.”
