the Britalian Milan site for pure Beady Eye, Pretty Green, Oasis, and City fans

Noel will join Beady Eye ^_^ - Liam: "no problem if the album sells 2 copies" - impossible - I ordered 3 :)

TORONTO - That's why last night  I added the Beady Eye logo on Hollywood Milano image featuring Noel :), you read my mind.
Beady Eye have suggested they have "forgiven" Noel Gallagher.
The ‘Bring The Light' rockers explained "life is too short" not to move on from their public spat with their former guitarist.
Asked if the lyrics of 'Kill For A Dream', which feature the lines "Life's too short not to forgive/ You can carry regrets but they won't let you live", are abut Noel, Andy – who wrote the song - said: "People might well hear it that way if they want. I'm well aware of that.
"Look, whoever it's directed to, it's a true statement. Life really is too short not to forgive."
Meanwhile, Liam admitted Noel – who left the band in August 2009 after claiming to have been "verbally and violently intimidated" by his brother – still has "an opinion" on the state of play of Beady Eye, despite not actually being in the band.
Liam told: "That song was written ages ago, but he can still have a fucking opinion on the whole state of play, you know."

Now that Liam is finally free of big brother, he's in no hurry to find a replacement. Or become one.
The former Oasis vocalist insists he's not the boss of his new band Beady Eye - which is really just his old band without control-freak songwriter and older-sibling guitarist Noel Gallagher.
"I don't think a band needs a leader," the 38-year-old singer proclaims from London. "I think it just needs everyone to be on the same page. It can work that way, and it does work that way for us."
He's got a point - if their fittingly titled debut Different Gear, Still Speeding is anything to go by. It finds the band picking up where the Beatlesque Brit-rockers left off in 2009, when they imploded in Paris after the latest of many battles between the volatile Gallaghers. At the same time, however, they're also wiping the slate clean: The band refuses to play Oasis songs live, and Liam adamantly rules out a possible reunion.
The always-outspoken Gallagher and bandmate Bell got on a speakerphone to discuss new music, old grudges and how they view Canada.

Liam, you and Noel have had plenty of other fights when one of you has walked away from the band temporarily. At first, did you think this one would blow over too?

L: Oh no. I was aware we couldn't make up after this one. I'd seen it coming; it had been brewing. It was well thought-out by a certain someone. I'm no fool. I knew what was going down.
Was carrying on an immediate decision? How did it happen?

Andy: We all ended up back at the hotel in Paris and had a couple of drinks. Obviously, we were all gutted and a bit shocked. But as time went on, we decided it would be a shame to just leave it and not play together. We thought, 'We are potentially a great band. Let's make a new band.'

Were you never tempted to carry on as Oasis?

A: Oasis is a band that should have Liam and Noel in it. It would have been wrong. Plus, if we'd have gone out as Oasis, we'd have had to play Oasis songs. It wouldn't have felt right.

Do you feel you have to prove yourselves again?

L: Only to ourselves. We know how good we are together as a band. Obviously, we've got to go onstage and fucking play well and do great gigs. But that's just 'cause we want to do that, you know? We've just got to prove to ourselves we're not all talk.

Once you decided to carry on and started rehearsing, how did it go? Was it tough at first?

L: We just started demoing these songs and they sounded good the minute we plugged in. We thought, 'This is it, man.' Even if we wanted to have a year off, we felt like there was a higher force saying, 'Get out there and get on with it. There's work to be done.' We knew instantly, man: 'We've got it.'

Was making this easier than making Oasis albums?

L: Yeah. Beady Eye don't think and overanalyze as much as Oasis. We just move along. On Oasis records, there was a lot of, like, just fucking banging your head against the wall when you didn't need to. With Oasis, it was Noel's vision. With this, we all wanted to make a great album. Everyone was involved. And there's not one thing on this record I would have done differently.

Are there things you would have done differently on Oasis albums?

L: I'd have liked to sing fucking earlier on in the making of the records. I was always singing at the end, so you'd be waiting about for a lot for people to get off out of the fucking studio, and then you sing. So there was just no vibe. It was like rent-a-singer. This time, I feel like I'm more in the band. The vocals go down earlier. And I think it helps everyone.

It sounds like you're saying this was a more enjoyable experience than making an Oasis album.

L: It was. I'm sorry to say it, but it was, mate. It was mega.

Are you nervous about how the album will be received? You know you're going to get compared endlessly to Oasis.

L: We don't mind. That's life. We know we've made a great record. Whether it changes peoples' lives is one thing, but it's changed our lives because we made it. So if it sells 2 million copies, 200 million copies or 2 copies, that's just something you've got to deal with (hey Liam that won't happen - I ordered 3, lol - you know, for the family ahaha - also the cat wants one ahahaha - and my turtle Alberta feels to be the alligator on the cover ^_^ - Marco). But that doesn't mean it's not a great record. And it's not going to stop us from making another one.

Andy, is it easier having one Gallagher in the band than two?

A: Two Gallaghers was cool. Having one is just as good. However many Gallaghers turn up is fine with me.

L: I know what he really wants to say, but he won't speak up while I'm here. I'll let you chaps swap numbers and chat later.

After what happened in Toronto on the last tour - when Noel was attacked by a fan onstage - are you hesitant to come back to Canada?

L: Listen! Little fucking cunts like that ain't going to stop the rock 'n' roll machine that is the Beady Eye, man! No fucking chance.

A: We'll be there - with our security guard.
