Liam Gallagher sues brother, demands apology

Liam and Noel Gallagher are at it again. The famously feuding brothers and former Oasis bandmates are bickering over a 2009 show cancellation and the band’s subsequent break up, and it sounds like it's going all the way to the courts.

In 2009, Oasis pulled out of the V Festival. Last month, Noel spoke out about the cancellation, saying that his brother was too hungover to perform.

Liam maintains that he had laryngitis, and is appealing to the U.K. court system to force his brother to give an apology, according to U.K. paper The Guardian.

Liam gave a statement to The Sun: "I have taken legal action against Noel Gallagher for statements he made claiming Oasis pulled out of the 2009 V festival Chelmsford gig because I had a hangover.”

In addition to the hangover bit, Liam is also upset about his brother’s claim that “the demise of Oasis followed a massive row in which he claimed I demanded to advertise my clothing [line] Pretty Green in the Oasis tour program.

“The truth is there was no such discussion or row between us," Liam went on. "There are many reasons why Oasis split. But it had nothing to do with my clothing range.”

The rock star claims he "tried to resolve this amicably but have been left with no choice but legal action. All I want is an apology."

Could it be only me or does it appear like a few of the remarks appear like they are written by brain dead people? :-P And, if you are posting on other online social sites, I'd like to follow anything new you have to post.

    Big sorry is all I can say to all yous.But you can do your selves a favour and at the same time save your sorry asses from the garbage that the radio is spewing on your deaf tone ears and pick up their albums.Oasis are truly one of the greatest bands to come out in the last 30 years!

    Suing your brother is stupid, but look at all the clueless geriatrics and squares up in here!

    Oasis were the only band with the cojones to be real rock stars in the 90s. And they had the substance (and substances) to back it up. Noel Gallagher is the greatest songwriter of his generation. And he gives fook all about what you think.

    Definitely Maybe and What's the Story Morning Glory were my favorite albums of the 1990s. While the rest of America was slurping up dull crud like Dave Matthews Band, Hootie & the Blowfish, and Stone Temple Pilots, I blasted these albums throughout college. Britpop like Oasis, Pulp, and The Verve (never cared for Blur) alongside the classic British music of the 1960s like the Beatles, The Kinks, and the Rolling Stones were my staples.

      Truer words have never been spoken on this thread my friend! Well said. I too, like many on here, didn't care much for Oasis in the 90's and thought they came across as arrogant. But then I got off my high horse and actually LISTENED TO THE ALBUMS. There's just not rock n' roll of this quality anymore these days. Sorry Kings of Leon aren't cutting it. True they were inspired heavily by the Beatles, but they make it their own. And besides if you're going to have major influences, there's nothing wrong with the likes of the Beatles, Stones, The Who, The Kinks, Faces, etc...

      Sorry they can't be "relevant", whatever that means. Just make great records. That's what do.

    What's more telling than this article are the comments: It's typical of our culture to take one headline and judge that person. I doubt no one on here knows Liam Gallagher personally. Watch some of his recent interviews and you'll see he comes across as a decent guy: a family man who just wants to make music. Whatever issues he has with his brother is his business.

    But to come out with blanket statements like, "this guy's a loser." What gives you the right? Only each person can define for themselves the answer to that. Liam or Kanye or whoever is no different.

  29. Not the whole story

    Liam suing for an "apology" isn't the whole story. Oasis entered a contract to play at the V Festival. The contract locked them into a performance at a certain day and at a certain time. The only way they could legally break the contract was for a medical issue. Since Liam said he had laryngitis, the band was able to walk away without being sued for breach of contract. (He has a long history of coming down with laryngitis before concerts he doesn't want to do.)

    Last month in a press conference, Noel said that Liam was hung over and that is why the gig had to be canceled. Liam is suing Noel in the hopes he can clear his name, otherwise the organizers of the V Festival can sue Oasis. Noel quit Oasis, and there are numerous articles were Liam is quoted as saying Oasis is/was his band. Liam says he is suing for an apology, but he is actually suing to try to cover his own ass.

    First things First ... these are self absorbed arrogant Manchester City FC fans. If they were from Liverpool they would be much more well behaved. Now, when it comes to music and craftmanship, these guys are right up there with some pretty big names. in the 90's, as America was awash in the complete and ear curling noise known as GRUNGE and as we, as a society, took a few steps back on the IQ scale by being exposed to gangsta rap, Oasis was putting forth some great work. 93 thorugh 96 was their peak. While US music in the 90s was garbage, UK music was BRILLIANT. Yes, they are irrelevant now in this age of famous talentless reality stars and Lady Gag Gag, but in they eyes of true rock historians they are a noteworthy band.

Does it even count as an apology if it is forced. What will he stand in court and say judge I don't think he meant it can you make him say it again and this time with feeling. Both should be ashamed and the court should charge them with wasting the courts time for something this trvial and with no meaning. After that they should be brought to my house where I can beat them with a rubber hose until they are bloody messes and then I can feed them to my dogs. That is what I think they are worth now.

    You guys are TOTALLY missing it! I think the two brother are in cahoots. After all, what "sells" – and keeps one's name(s) (and products) in the media – better than controversy? I bet these two are "stirring it up" on purpose in order to (i) keep the now-defunct Oasis in the news (and thus sell records), and (ii) give Liam's clothing line some much-needed media attention! This is a scam, people, and the two of them are probably laughing all the way to the bank!!

    I hope this helps..

    In the city of dark clouds and steamy
    streets,
    along came two brothers.
    One the older one
    grabbed six stones from the cracked ground
    and threw them as hard as he can to the
    smog stacked dark clouded gloomy sky.
    The other one, younger,
    stood still in front of dirty and filthy lake
    that it has become.
    And he screamed and screamed so hard
    his veins erected red.
    Then, the older one yelled out his brother.
    They began racing.
    Just running and racing with ..each other.
    They never rested.
    They kept on running and running until
    they were racing through the golden city.
    Everyone yelled, screamed, and shouted
    at them.
    But they never paid attetion.
    They just kept on racing.
    Now, when the race was over,
    like the two gentlements,
    they gracefully knocked on the
    gate of the End.
    Now, they think about..

    their love
    their success and meeting with
    the prime minister of the UK,
    their health..

    and the breakfast at the white
    diner with sunglasses on.

    Good to see you Galleger Brothers
    from what they say are the world's
    best band ever

      His "little brother" never would have been a success if it wasn't for Noel coming in and writing the songs for Liam to sing and the band to perform. What success was Liam going to have just using covers? It took him years to develop enough to be able to write songs on his own, and even then they still weren't all that good. Noel is the heart of the group, don't get it twisted.

    I simply can't believe the idiots on here that are putting down what may be the best english songwriter since lennon and mac. Noel Gallagher is simply the best song writer of his generation. Your stupidity is plan to see. They never became as big in America as they should have because of blacklisting by those in the music industry they would not cow down to. They refused to kiss the ass of the media and the record execs and payed the price in the USA. Europe an the rest of the world not only understand the greatness of Oasis but have kept them selling out massive shows year in and year out. You really need to look up some of their 10 albums which have sold 10s of millions of units around the world and see what your missing because of who controls American radio air play.

      Sorry. The rest of the world isn't as impressed with this clown's mediocre song writing as you. Please do not compare him to other song writers whose music grew with the artists as they matured musically and intellectually. His songs sound the same today as they did years ago, no growth lyrically, no musical expansion. It all sounds the same. The booze has affected any artistic credibility and any attempts at being anything other than marginally talented musically. You sound like a lovesick teenager.

      Hey man, they will stand the test of time. If you were in college righ now and taking music history classes, you'd come across them. Last year, after a poll conduced in the UK by a major UK music mag, their first album – "Definatley Maybe" was deemed the greatest album of all time – that's greater than the Beatles, Led Zepplin, Clapton, the Who, the Stones, etc. So just because you haven't heard about them, you need to understand that in other parts of the world, they're the biggest band of all time. They've played to some of the biggest audiences in European history – see Knebworth – and sold out their 2008 Madison Square Garden show in under 8 minutes. Their last drummer was Ringo Starr's son (who also played for the Who). Moreover, Ryan Adams, Weezer and the Foo Fighters all hold Noel Gallagher to be the greatest song writer of his generation, and all cover Oasis songs. If you respect classic rock, and it sounds like you do, you should definatley listen to "Definately Maybe" – Oasis was the only band carrying on for the Stones, the Beatles, etc.

      Yeah, that was Q magazine, I think, that had that poll. Gotta say I've been rather amazed at Q's polls over the years. Makes me wonder who their audience is. I like the kind of music Oasis played, and I loved their sound, but I never felt compelled to listen to any of their albums over and over. Musical opinions are so subjective, but I'd be surprised if you'd find any Oasis album listed before three or four Beatles albums on any comprehensive poll NOT limited to the readers of Q.

      I was part of that 2008 Madison Square Garden group that helped it sell out in under 8 minutes. I actually planned my honeymoon around that show. And their second album (What's the Story?) Morning Glory, I listened to over and over and even now it's my go-to album when I need a pick-me-up and having a bad day. I have loved Oasis since I was 13 and even though they are done now, I will continue to love them and support Beady Eye (Liam's band) and Noel's High Flying Birds.
