Liam Gallagher interview excerpt from NME magazine
NME: One thing that doesn't make the papers so much now Is the rift with Noel - he doesn't seem to be fueling it any more. He told NME that he likes your new stuff…
Liam: "Good, It's good music. But he'll say anything to you. Deep down he probably hates it, but he's never gonna tell you the truth. He just walks around in wolf's clothes, man. I wear my heart on my sleeve. Or maybe he's mellow and it's just me."
He won an Ivor last week.
"Bet he's happy with that, isn't he?"
"I don't give a fuck what awards he gets. Ivor Novello Award? What is it?"
Oasis won two of them. It's the industry award.
"I Don't want anything to do with that shit"
He got it for his song collection. What would that mean to you, to be recognised as a songwriter?
"I've got a lot to learn about song writing, but I'm learning fucking fast man, believe you me. I just want people to dig my songs, I don't need an award for it."
Noel seems to have been welcomed into rock's elder statesmen club, that sort of Ray Davies, Roger Daltrey and Paul McCartney world, where you haven't.
"Yeah, poor bastard. He wears it well, all that gear. He's a civilised kind of chap. He doesn't want to know about that rock'n'roll stuff any more "
