Beady Eye's Andy Bell and Gem Archer have spoken to the NME about band member Liam Gallagher.
Gem Archer said "When people actually meet Liam they have a different opinion of him. You get into a cab and the driver says, 'You know what, I had Liam in and he's a really top fella'. Liam's an icon, so wherever you go people will say hello to him. He'll spend all night having his photo taken with kids and fans - that side of Liam isn't reported on."
Andy Bell added "Obviously Liam is perceived as a bit of a cartoon character. There are a lot of preconceptions about him. But that's not the Liam I know. I know a different guy. But that's not to say those sides to him aren't there..." The NME is on sale now.
