British Rocker Andy Bell Had Already Reformed His 1990s Band Ride Before Liam Gallagher Announced Beady Eye Had Split.
Bell first found success with the Leave Them All Behind hitmakers, but following their break-up in the mid-1990s he went on to work with Gallagher in Oasis and his later band, Beady Eye.
Gallagher announced in October (14) that he was disbanding the group, and Bell revealed the following month (Nov14) that he was reforming Ride, but now it has emerged he was already rehearsing with his former bandmates and preparing for their relaunch when Beady Eye split.
Bell tells Uncut magazine, "I knew Beady Eye was going to be on writing time, and this spring would be pretty free. I told the Beady Eye guys I wanted to do this. Later on, the news came though from Liam that he was calling it a day. So it meant that instead of being two weeks of gigs, it would be a little more."
