Liam Gallagher has confirmed that he’s in talks with the Stone Roses’ John Squire about forming a supergroup.
The former Oasis star teased the idea of the pair collaborating when he’d brought out the former The Stone Roses guitarist for his Knebworth shows to perform Oasis’ 1995 track ‘Champagne Supernova.’
“Super group incoming LG JS,” Gallagher wrote on Twitter at the time. Now, Gallagher has revealed in a new interview with Matt Wilkinson on Apple Music 1 that the pair are “definitely” going to work together.
After Wilkinson requested an update on the matter, Gallagher said: “Yeah. Serious, man. But we’ve got things to do first, and he’s got things to clear up and that. But yeah, I’m definitely going to do summat at some point.”
Wilkinson added: “So you’ve actually had the conversation a little bit?” to which Gallagher replied: “Maybe, yeah. Probably did that at Knebworth and that, I think, if I can remember anything about it. “But, no. There’s talk about summat. Maybe. But no rush. He’s my man, I love him. So if he’s got any tunes that need singing, I’m the boy, mate.”
Also in the interview, Gallagher revealed that he’s been swigging “half a bottle of brandy” before he goes on stage over the last year. The singer said that he’d been drinking brandy with honey and hot water to warm up his voice.
“I’ve been getting a bit battered on stage recently. Not battered as much but just… I wouldn’t say nerves but I think as you get older, you do get a little bit more… you’re not as cocksure.”
