Mad for It: Wit & Wisdom of the Gallaghers

Mad for It: Wit & Wisdom of the Gallaghers

Paul Stokes  (Author)
Liam on Noel ´Who is the most overrated person of all time? Has to be Noel Gallagher.´ Noel on Liam ´He´s rude, arrogant, intimidating and lazy. He´s the angriest man you´ll ever meet. He´s like a man with a fork in a world of soup.´ Liam on the King ´My fascination with Elvis? Just wiping his arse with gooses´ necks does it for me.´ The Brothers Gallagher: the self-proclaimed heirs to Lennon and McCartney, the enfants terribles of British pop, and rock ´n´ roll´s most notorious sibling rivalry. For nearly two decades, Noel and Liam have loomed large over the cultural landscape - storming the charts, packing out stadia around the planet, even hobnobbing with Tony Blair at 10 Downing Street. But during this time they´ve done one thing more than any other: talk about it. Indeed, in an age when pop stars are air-brushed and ´media trained´ into indentikit banality - lest they frighten the Saturday tea-time audiences - these mancunian motor-mouths resolutely refuse to shut up and stay ´on message´. For which we can only be grateful. The Gallaghers´ verbal onslaught has bequeathed us a comprehensive, occasionally Zen-like, and above all offensive commentary on modern times, taking in everything from arch-Britpop-rivals Blur, to reality TV, the global financial crisis and belief in extra-terrestrial life. Most of all, they´ve taken lumps out of each other. So, for posterity, we give you: the wit and wisdom of the Brothers Gallagher. On the possibility of life on other planets ´Do I believe in Aliens? ´Course I do. I´m not frightened by them, though, I´m as smart as them. Probably thick as f***, aren´t they? ...I´d do they heads in, me, frighten the life out of them! That´s why they haven´t landed yet.´ Liam On keeping it real ´Jack White has just done a song for Coca-Cola. End of. He ceases to be in the club. And he looks like Zorro on doughnuts.´ Noel On death ´On my grave, I want them to write, "Don´t f***ing come here with your bunches of flowers"´. I don´t want a gravestone, I want a V-sign, two fingers. When you´re dead, you´re dead. It´s now that matters.´ Liam
