Liam Gallagher On Bassist Drew McConnell And Pete Doherty

Liam Gallagher has hailed his bassist Drew McConnell as ‘fucking talented’, as well as recalling the time he met his Babyshambles bandmate Pete Doherty.

McConnell plays in Liam’s current solo band, alongside Kasabian’s touring guitarist Jay Mahler, Mike Moore on lead guitar, Dan McDougall on drums and Chris Madden on keys. Doherty said that he experienced ‘stressification’ after losing McConnell from Babyshambles to join Gallagher’s line-up. Now, Gallagher has praised McConnell’s talent and attitude.

“I’d never met Drew before and you know – he’s fucking talented,” Liam told NME. “He’s played with The La’s, Drew, so he’s obviously talented. To keep the fucking Babyshambles thing going he’s gotta be pretty headstrong, you know what I mean.”

“I met him and he seemed cool. He’s been very fucking laid back. There’s been no like ‘look, you’s lot – do ya fucking thing, here’s your numbers, go and fucking do it’.”

Asked about whether he has any contact or relationship with Pete Doherty, Gallagher replied: “No, I’ve only met him once, but that was years ago at the Forum when he was with…what are they called.. fucking, Libertines. It was just ‘hello, you’re really tall and that’. He looked like my mic stand.”
