The end of Oasis

Alan: Beady Eye are much better than anybody says

GLASGOW - Scots music legend Alan McGee has revealed he almost didn't sign supergroup Oasis because he thought Liam Gallagher looked too dodgy.
East Kilbride-born McGee famously discovered the band after seeing them play an unbilled set at legendary Glasgow venue King Tut's back in 1993.
But he admits he thought Liam's arrogance and looks pointed to him being involved in crime.
Alan, who will be in Scotland next week to premiere the Creation Records documentary Upside Down, recalled: "I would never have seen Oasis if I hadn't got the licensing laws wrong and turned up at 8.30pm because I expeced the venue to close early.
"It was a Sunday, falling on a Bank Holiday weekend and I was there to see my band 18 Wheeler. No bands were on when I arrived.
"Liam Gallagher was sitting in the bar in a blue Adidas tracksuit. He looked like an 18-year old Paul Weller.
"I'm a bit cynical. I thought he was obviously a drug dealer because he looked both tremendous and arrogant. I thought, rock 'n' roll stars don't look that good.
"I was thinking the bald guy behind him, who turned out to be Bonehead, must be the singer."
So Alan almost didn't bother to catch the short set by Oasis that led him to offer them a deal on the spot and made him a millionaire.
The retired music mogul recalled: "I had heard these mouthy Mancs wanted to get up on stage. That was all I knew about it. I was drinking Jack Daniel's when I was told there was going to be a punch-up with the Mancunians.
"I went upstairs with my sister to check 18 Wheeler were going to be okay.
"Then Liam Gallagher came on stage. As Liam's performances go, it was pretty subdued. He wasn't giving it large.
"If anything, it was Noel and his guitar playing that dominated. I am not even sure they knew I was in the audience."
Alan saw the potential of the band, though even he admits he could never have foreseen the 50 million sales that followed.
He said: "The music business had already passed Oasis by at this point. They had already done a gig at In The City showcase in Manchester that year. Noel and Liam had a tiff on stage, so nobody had bothered to check out if they were any good.
"Six months later, I get the opening times for King Tut's wrong and happen to see them play four songs in Glasgow. It's like it was meant to be. It was that random.
"It was a bit like walking to a bus stop and discovering Elvis Presley."
Alan added: "I thought they were a good band. I never knew they were going to sell so many records.
"I knew they were influenced by The Stone Roses and I was clever enough to think I might do a bit of business. We thought we would be doing well if Definitely Maybe went platinum. We sold seven million."

Alan is back in Glasgow on Tuesday when director Danny O' Connor's film documentary premieres at Glasgow Film Theatre (GFT). It charts the Creation label and the signing of Oasis, Primal Scream, Teenage Fanclub, My Bloody Valentine and many more.
Fresh interviews are mixed with concert footage, including Oasis at Knebworth. The screening at 6.15pm will be followed by an after-party at the 02 ABC in Sauchiehall Street. It will feature a live set by BMX Bandits, a DJ set by Alan McGee and other special guests.

Alan, now 50, admits he snubbed the chance to hold a premiere for the film in London. He said: "We are doing the premiere at the GFT. It's nothing personal against London. I don't mind DJ-ing there but I feel Glasgow deserves this. It's a Scottish story, it's a Celtic story, it's an Irish story. It is basically people from Glasgow, Ireland and Manchester.
"My family came over from Ireland 100 years ago. The Gallaghers are first generation Irish and My Bloody Valentine are Irish. It's very Celtic.
"The funniest part of the film is Manchester. The pivotal moments are obviously the rise of Oasis. Everything Noel Gallagher says is comic genius. Bobby Gillespie's take on it all is very astute.
"The main story centres around Bobby Gillespie and I arriving in London because Andrew Innes, who I was in a band with, wanted to become a pop star.
"The two of them formed Primal Scream and I formed a record label. I had only gone to London because Andrew was going to throw me out of our band!"
Alan is back in talks with the BBC and Channel 4 for a programme based on his time at the label.
He and Scots writer Irvine Welsh hope to persuade them to create a drama based around his own experiences and those of Sex Pistols manager Malcolm McLaren and former Rolling Stones manager Andrew Loog Oldham.
When prompted, Alan wastes no time in listing the bands who defined Creation.
He said: "Oasis, obviously, because they defined the 90s, Primal Scream because they defined Creation and my life in a lot of ways and Teenage Fanclub because Norman Blake is a pop genius.
"Then there's The Jesus And Mary Chain because they helped Creation to get off the ground and My Bloody Valentine because they are still relevant and could headline most festivals in Europe."

Meanwhile, he is certain Oasis will reform, following their split in 2009.
He said: "I think the break-up was meant to be because Liam's band Beady Eye have made a much better record than anybody wants to give him credit for. It is very listenable. It's a feel-good record you want to hear on a Saturday morning.
"But it's not the best record he'll ever make. And having heard the Noel demos, I think this will be his most important record since What's The Story. But Noel and Liam will both suffer when they release albums because they are no longer Oasis.
"They are going their separate ways at this point. Ever since I have known them they have been having bad arguments.
"I don't think you can discount them getting on well in the future and somebody paying them to do an Oasis world tour. I would be shocked if that doesn't happen.
"I think both Liam and Noel needed, creatively, to go and do their own thing. There will probably be fireworks if they get back together but they still share the same management and at some point someone will say, 'there's £200 million. Go do 100 shows'."

Alan recounts one piece of Scottish rock history previously unwritten and not featured in the film.
He said: "Remember the Bungalow Bar in Paisley? The bands who played there were amazing.
"It was incredible and arguably the most important punk venue in Scotland.
"Andrew and I played a Newspeak gig with Lloyd Cole on drums. It was the first time Lloyd had been on stage. I have never told anybody before. Somehow I had become pals with Lloyd Cole. He was our first drummer and we were absolutely rubbish."

all beady eyes were on gorgeous Pippa

LONDON - I've heard Kate studied Italian in Florence (because of Renaissance arts)... so maybe she could know what Pippa means... (can we say it? yes because it's an Oasis site :) ...it means wank, lol (slang language). Maybe she wanted to be the one marrying William... as many. Then the meaning of her name does make more sense, lol.
At a certain point (almost at the end, inside the church...) her dress was transparent and we could see her awesome ass ahaha

It may be Prince William & Kate Middleton's wedding day but all (beady) eyes were on her younger sister Philippa, Pippa.
The bridesmaid wowed the crowds as she stepped out of a Rolls-Royce wearing figure-hugging Alexander McQueen.
The dress was created by Sarah Burton the Creative Director of the fashion house and is a heavy, ivory based crepe with a cowl front and the same button detail and lace trims as the bride's.
As the incredibly toned and tanned brunette beauty took her place holding Kate's train, social networking sites like Twitter almost crashed.
Appearing in the top five trending topics the 27-year-old has become an overnight pin-up.
Someone tweeted "Pippa Middleton is the most beautiful person I've ever seen in my life".
But the main topic of tweet conversation is the wish that Pippa and Prince Harry hook up at the reception.
Stranger things have happened!


Oasis' Falling down, proper video for today

before the wedding: Mario Testino photo, football and speeding with Italian motorbike

LONDON - To quote Oasis' Morning Glory: today's the day that all the world will see.
Incognito royal bridegroom Prince William rides home on his 180mph motorbike — after enjoying a footie kickabout with his mates in a park.
The exclusive pics of the Prince on the 1,100cc Ducati earlier this week emerged as all the details of today's big day were revealed in the Royal Wedding Official Programme (click here to see the full one).
The programme was released as Kate Middleton joined Prince Harry and her sister Pippa at Westminster Abbey for a final rehearsal ahead of her wedding.
The official document — which includes a personal message from Wills and Kate — also features a brand new black and white snap of the couple.
The picture, by fashion photographer Mario Testino, shows the couple in matching white shirts beaming into the camera.
The photo shows a softer, more personal side to the soon-to-be wed couple — just as Testino's shots did for Diana.
The programme also reveals the Royal Wedding will include a special tribute to Princess Diana.
The hymn 'Guide me, O thou great redeemer', which rang out at her funeral, will be the first song played during the service.
Wills, 28, was snapped in his soccer trainers and tracksuit bottoms as he jumped on the bike to head to Clarence House on Tuesday night.
Sources said he favours using the powerful superbike - and wearing a full-face crash helmet with tinted visor - to travel without being recognised.
Kate, 29, was joined at Westminster by best man Harry, 26, as well as the bridesmaids and pageboys and members of her family for the preparations this morning.
It is the last time Kate or a member of the Royal Family will be at the abbey before the service gets under way today, St James's Palace said.
Both smiled broadly as they were greeted by the Dean of Westminster, the Very Rev Dr John Hall, who will conduct the ceremony.
On Tuesday the laid-back Prince showed no signs of pre-wedding jitters as he got stuck in during his kickabout in a park.
Wills, wearing a pair of England shorts, laughed and joked with his friends during a rough-and-tumble game of five-a-side.
The heir hurled himself into the tackles - clearly unbothered about the risk of straining something important so close to his and Kate's big day.
One onlooker said: "William seemed in good spirits. He was very competitive and, if he has any last-minute nerves, he wasn't showing them."
As the hour-long game at the London park finished, Football Association (FA) President William came in for some gentle ribbing from his pals.
They surrounded him, gave a few friendly shoulder barges and bounced the ball off his head.
At about 11pm the Prince set off home on his powerful Ducati motorbike - still wearing the trainers he played in. His famous features were hidden behind a helmet with tinted visor.
Kate had a spray-on tan yesterday so she looks her best walking up the aisle today.
But Wills turned down the chance to have one - saying: "I'm not David Beckham."
A Royal source said (oh "a source said" is back, as false as Judas, lol) "he refused Kate's offer of a fake tan and pedicure. He doesn't want to be seen as a pampered Prince. He said, 'I leave all that metrosexual stuff to Beckham'."
Earlier this week, former AC Milan Beckham — who is set to attend the wedding with wife Victoria — posted a Royal Wedding message on his Facebook page saying "our country needs this". The England ace says in the video: "I think a Royal Wedding, it's amazing. It really is amazing. Our country needs it. Our country wants it. The British public love the Royal Family."
The Prince has been learning to waltz for his first dance with Kate, after telling friends he feared having "two left feet".
Kate has meanwhile been practising her signature, using the new official title the Queen will announce today.
William's RAF colleagues have been teasing him for weeks - by drinking their coffee out of Wills and Kate souvenir mugs.

The car in which she will travel to the abbey is a Rolls-Royce Phantom VI, similar to Beady Eye's one in the Millionaire video.
Having seen all, now I'm even more sure I will never get married, lol. The people even sleeping outside there, they should have their heads checked.
And so much money thrown away, they will probably separate soon or later (in fact, they already did some time ago, not a good sign...) or something negative will happen, I'm just realist.
Nothing ever lasts forever, Beady Eye docet.


a Balotelli or Oasis style joke :)

England will miss Mario Balotelli

MANCHESTER - If Mario Balotelli goes away at the end of the season (some time ago we had an information leaking... he agreed to play for his beloved team, AC Milan, but the transfer from ManCity is not made yet), the Premier League will miss him. He's mad and tabloids have much to write about him, as we say: "bread for their teeth" :). Now they even started to (somehow) "appreciate" him, that's weird from tabloids always talking shit. One of his last jokes was direct live on tv, if you watched Blackburn-City 0-1, his joke to Dzeko (a revenge for Dzeko mocking him with the bib).
At the beginning, when he played for Inter Milan, I used to hate him, as many people do, but often it's just because he plays for an opponent team. Now I really adore him. Footballers in England often have crazy behaviours, but they're quite boring, just getting drunk, getting arrested, cheating wives and families, fucking bitches lol... while Mario is hilarious and different, because he's just childish, mocks Rooney's bitch lol, gets so many fines to pay because of his car, etc., and he's a great player too.

If Mario's Man City teammates set fire to one of his designer suits he would probably laugh in their faces.
The Italian striker loves the Crazy Gang-style pranks that his side are getting up to.
They aren't as ruthless as those which Wimbledon boys Vinnie Jones and Dennis Wise played on each other back in the day but are enough to put a smile on Mario's usually moody mug (that's not really true - Marco).
Team-mate Yaya Toure recently taped Mario's trainers to the dressing-room ceiling.
It was revenge for Mario tripping up Ivory Coast midfielder Yaya while messing about during training.
Just like Mario did to striker Edin Dzeko in front of their team's fans as the Bosnian celebrated City's 1-0 win at Blackburn, in which he scored.
Mario's mates from home are getting in on the act, too. They've been calling his favourite Manchester restaurant, San Carlo (Italian, in Pretty Green shop street - Marco), and ordering 20 pizzas to his apartment, saying he's having a party.
A source said: "Mario loves schoolboy pranks and his Italian friends are worse than the City lads.
"They have even put in orders at pet shops while pretending to be Mario.
"They also call him and bark down the phone, winding him up about his beloved dog who's still in quarantine back in Italy."
Last week Balotelli gave £1,000 in cash to a tramp outside Manchester's 235 Casino where he had just won £25k.
Which reminds me, Man City aren't playing tonight and I do a good Scottish tramp impression: "50p to look after your car Mr Mario, pal?"
The boy Mario is without doubt the signing of the season.

"por qué? no sé si es la publicidad del Unicef.." (The Special Clown)

MADRID - I don't know how many times I used this image.
As usual, shit impression for Mourinho, sent off and losing again, Real Madrid-Barcelona 0-2, two goals from Messi.
After the match he wondered if it's thanks to Unicef sponsorship (!!) that some players are sent off when playing vs Barcelona, when everybody knows the power Real Madrid already has.
Besides, Pepe was even already booked, nothing strange in a red card for a bad kick. And also Sergio Ramos had to be sent off in the second half...
Mourinho is always proud he "always says what he thinks" but last night said: "if I say it all, my career ends today"... come on great man, say everything.
Of course another suspension is coming for him.
Overrated manager, nicknamed the "Special One" but also the "Anti-football", playing defensive, playing with words and nerves instead of football, winning a Champions League vs Montecarlo (!) and one with Inter Milan thanks to 15 referee "mistakes" against Dyinamo Kyiv, Chelsea, Barcelona, Bayern Munich, etc. Por qué? No te preguntas por qué quince?
And last night he even had the shit face to say Guardiola should feel ashamed for the 2009 Champions League (referee mistake against Chelsea in the semifinal).
And again repeating he's sick of the world, blah blah, but not sick of millions eh?

"Gracias, Barça".
(Noel Gallagher, after beating Manchester United)

"There's only one boss in this town, and if Jose's here I'll have him."
(Liam Gallagher in Madrid)

they could be famous footballers...


MILAN - There are so many players who had aspirations of greatness but neither had the talent nor dedication. I remember also Liam played football very well, even when he was drunk :). Here are some 'footballers' who played professionally, in amateur leagues or just simply lived with dreams of stardom, but found their fame or notoriety through other means.

Paul McGuigan was either very lucky or very unlucky, depending on how you look at it.
He sure made a boatload of money playing bass for Oasis from 1991 to 1999, but he was so crap that Noel Gallagher re-recorded almost all of his parts.
Yet McGuigan knows enough about football that he co-authored a book – “The Greatest Footballer You Never Saw” – about Reading striker Robin Friday, while in Oasis.
Guigsy played for various youth teams in Manchester while growing up but suffered a career ending knee injury at 16 that put his aspirations of football stardom to an end.
Sure, it led to his career in Oasis, but it ended his childhood dreams.

Guitarist Johnny Marr found fame with The Smiths and served as a sort of spiritual godfather to the Madchester scene and Oasis’ Noel Gallagher.
As a teenager, Marr played for a number of youth teams and had tryouts for both Nottingham Forest and Manchester City.
Nothing came of the tryouts because, according to Marr, he was the only one on the pitch at the time wearing eyeliner.

In his late teens, Rod Stewart signed a contract with Brenton Football Club. He made the side’s second team, though quit not long after signing.
Young Stewart was overcome with disappointment that he spent most of his time minding the first team’s equipment and cleaning up after them.
So Rod gave up on football and decided to pursue his other passion, music. He would go on to sell over 100 million albums worldwide.

American actress and model Jessica Biel grew up idolizing footballer Mia Hamm. "That was the person I wanted to be, not a supermodel. I wanted ripped abs, muscular thighs, beautiful arms," Biel said in an interview with the Seattle Post-Intelligencer.
Unfortunately, being a woman, she didn’t stand much of a chance of making a splash as a professional athlete, so when she was offered a role on TV drama “7th Heaven,” she jumped at the chance.
However, Biel continues to play the beautiful game in celebrity matches and for fun, in her free time.

At the age of 21, winger James Allan helped Cowdenbeath win promotion from the Scottish Third Division to the Scottish Second Division. It was the height of his footballing career.
Eleven years later, Allan reached the Number 2 position on the British charts as the lead singer, rhythm guitarist and principal songwriter of Scottish shoegazing popsters Glasvegas.
The band has since sold hundreds of thousands of records, been nominated for countless awards and toured the world. Glasvegas’ sophomore album, “Euphoric Heartbreak,” hit shelves April 4th, 2011.
Allan’s lyrics contain numerous references to the beautiful game.

English singing sensation Robbie Williams has sold 57 million albums worldwide.
Williams is the most popular non-Latin singer in Latin America (weird fact, that), and is the best-selling British solo artist in the UK.
Before finding fame with boy band Take That, Williams played briefly at current League Two side Port Vale FC, based in the Stoke-on-Trent area. Williams is now the majority shareowner of the organization.
Eamon Farrell, father to Colin, and Tommy Farrell, uncle to Colin, both played professional football for Irish side Shamrock Rovers FC.

All through his youth, Colin Farrell nursed the dream of becoming a football star. He played competitively for a number of teams in Ireland until his late teens, at which point his growing affection for drugs and alcohol took precedence over his love for sport.
Farrell’s abandonment of football led him to seek an alternate path to stardom. After a failed try out for Boyzone, the Irish equivalent of N’Sync, Farrell turned to acting, and maybe you know the rest of the story (I don't).

Bug-eyed and alien-headed, the Italian Pierluigi Collina is widely regarded one of, if not the single greatest referee in the modern game.
Collina played central defense for a local team in Bologna before pursuing a career in refereeing at the behest of a friend’s recommendation.
After refereeing a number of high profile matches in Serie A and at the international level in the World Cup and other tournaments, Collina retired.
In the wake of his near 20-year career, the über ref now works as an unpaid consultant for Italian Football Referees Association and as a curator of judges for the Football Federation of Ukraine.

About the football career :) of Marco Zanella lol, his first football memory, idolizing Paolo Rossi, is the World Cup won by Italy in 1982. As a kid, he used to play for the team of the main Milan church, which had the colours of the city of Milan and England, red shirt, white shorts. Big stars, among many, of that period were AC Milan legend Marco Van Basten winning everything and Inter Milan "tank" Lothar Matthaus winning a record-league and a World Cup with his national team.
Later in his youth :), Marco played with his work mates from the main football tv channel in Italy at that time: usually this kind of games finish with big results as 9-8, 12-10, etc. but not these, there was a lot of "fighting" to win and they ended with a few goals as in real games, 2-0, 3-1, etc. with a devastating Zanella always scoring. Among many legends, AC Milan's landmarks Paolo Maldini (since even before Van Basten times) and still today Pippo Inzaghi, last for so many years, making it the best team ever in history. Italy winning another World Cup.
Today, on oasisblues, all Marco's knowledge given to the world :). Soon, after some time without playing, he should organize and play his last game (singles vs married :) for a goodbye to played football.
sigh ;(
I bet the singles would win, the married usually grow a big belly...

Beady Eye @ Guildhall, buzzing crowd football-chanting 'Liam'

SOUTHAMPTON - (Photo at the gig in Newcastle. After several gigs, last night Brighton, now there's a break until 29 May, Denmark, because Japan gigs had to be postponed).
When contemplating which of the Gallagher brothers would strike first – and exactly how - after Oasis decided to go their separate ways last year, not many followers would have put their money on Liam (with his former band members minus Noel in tow) being to one to lay his cards on the table early doors.
Even fewer would have expected him to have as good a hand as debut album Different Gear, Still Speeding, which took both critics and fans slightly by surprise – a neat collection of rock‘n’roll blasts and psychedelic trips.
So Beady Eye have a good base of songs to work with on the first tour, which rolled up at the Southampton Guildhall on Tuesday.
With former band Oasis, Liam and co played a much-talked-about early gig at the Guildhall back in the early 90s - the stuff of local legend - and this is the first time either brother has been back at the venue to belt out a few tunes to a receptive audience.
But the '90s are history, the fans have grown up and things have moved on. It's interesting to hear that Beady Eye have shifted, lyrically, too.
The swagger is still there, 100 percent, and the group are still more than ready to rock, but instead of spitting out tales of cigarettes and alcohol or feeling supersonic, the lyrics are beginning to offer an insight into the lives of rock stars hitting middle age.
On Man of Misery, a B-side helping to fill out the band’s running list, Liam reveals ‘I had a dreadful night/Fighting with the wife/Now I'm a man of misery’, while album track Wigwam offers up the interesting ‘You’re taking off in the night/You're coming in when it's light/You make it up to the wife/You say you're wrong when it's right’.
Everything on the new album is given an airing tonight, kicking off with the punky Four Letter Word and moving quickly onto Beatles and Stones. The breezy Millionaire is worthy of a graphical backdrop, while recent single The Roller gets a good reception. It’s worth saying that several of the numbers gain something by being played live, with The Beat Goes On springing to mind as a prime example.
Although Liam was happy to dish out banter during the set, the acoustics at the Guildhall meant much of it was missed by the crowd. He can certainly still draw the attention of the masses though – there’s no fancy stage show tonight, but it’s not needed because all eyes are fixed on the frontman throughout the night.
For Oasis without Noel, it must be quite a change playing a set of just over one hour, and firing out your entire repertoire during that time, when just a short while ago they would have had to select just their finest cuts and squeeze them into a setlist much longer than Beady Eye’s.
But live, and on record, the group have probably achieved what they set out to do – put some clear water between them and what has gone before. They look and sound like a ‘proper’ band, so they’re happy with that, and I think audiences are too.

The snarling lip, the monkey stroll, the rasping voice - there’s no mistaking Liam Gallagher.
And in his new incarnation as frontman of Beady Eye, he’s a man reborn to rock and roll.
Critics who dismissed this line-up as Oasis without Noel were pleasantly surprised by Beady Eye’s debut album, which wore its 60s influences on its sleeve and sounded a lot fresher than the late-period offerings of Gallagher’s former band.
And there’s no disputing who’s the star here. Even before the band takes to the stage, a buzzing crowd are football-chanting Liam’s name.
Live and loud, these songs have a lot more punch. Opener Four Letter Word states the band’s intention perfectly as the singer adopts his slightly-too-tall-for-the-mike-stand pose and spits the lyrics into the crowd.
Subtler tracks like Millionaire and For Anyone break up the pace nicely, and thanks to belting versions of The Roller and Bring The Light, the beered-up fans got exactly what they came for.
There’s a definite sense that this new life on the road playing smalller venues again has revitalised the younger Gallagher brother. Someday, he and Noel will bury the hatchet for an Oasis reunion and a mega pay day.
But until then, this will do just fine.

Orlando Bloom based rocker character on Oasis

LONDON - English actor Orlando Bloom has said that he found inspiration for his role in new film Sympathy For Delicious in rock wildmen Liam and Noel Gallagher and Ian Brown.
The "Pirates of the Caribbean" star plays band frontman The Stain in Mark Ruffalo's directorial debut, and explained that he looked to the attitude of The Stone Roses frontman and Oasis pair when working on his character as cocky rocker.
He told Wenn they provided him with plenty of material to work with as he developed the role.

Orlando, which rock gods did you scrutinize and look at, in putting together this character?

"I was thinking of some of the great musicians in England who came from the North. There’s The Beatles and The Stones and stuff, but for me, my generation had Ian Brown from The Stone Roses and the Gallagher brothers from Oasis. They had that attitude of, “We are the best fucking band in the world! We don’t give a shit what anyone says, or whatever anyone else is doing. We are the band.” It was that front for that “I’m going to have it” energy that was something that I really thought would be great for this character. There were some particularly hard lines of dialogue to put across, so that really helped me. Also, there’s the band called The Brian Jonestown Massacre that was the band that Mark [Ruffalo] and Chris [Thornton] were thinking of, and the lead singer Anton [Newcombe]. He was somebody who I looked at a bit, but really I found myself falling into that North of England attitude, which is why the dialect is a broad Northern accent."

Bloom admits he had no personal run-ins with rockers to draw from, but he'd love to experience that lifestyle in another lifetime.
He adds, "I never had a brush with a rock star but I'd like to come back as a rock star."
The actor debuted his movie band with a free concert in Los Angeles in February 2009, when he recorded a gig scene for the film with co-star and punk rocker Juliette Lewis.
Juliette talked about her desire to get back out on the road again with her own band, The Licks.

some things never change... great future for Beady Eye

LONDON - So everybody's speaking about it in England, and not only there.
Of course also in Italy we have the marriage "direct live" on a main tv channel.
Some time ago also Beady Eye spoke about the Royal Wedding between Prince 'Liam' William and Kate Middleton that will take place on Westminster Abbey, London, on Friday, April 29.
Liam: "Good luck to them man, and fair play to them". He admitted that the bank holiday declared in celebration won't have much effect on him or new band Beady Eye. "We don't observe holidays in this band. It's all one big holiday, one big fucking day off."
Last year Gem said that we will all be sick of it by next year, but admitted "It's class" that most people will enjoy two days off work that week.

Yesterday, Wolverhampton Civic Hall welcomed Beady Eye as they made their West Midland debut. The now defunct band Oasis, renamed Beady Eye and minus big brother Noel, opened with a wild 90 minutes of music.
Liam Gallagher, keeping with his unique swagger and his particular style of dress, opened with Four Letter Word, a perfect, in your face rock’n roll song, got the crowd up on their feet in just 4 minutes.
The sold out show, chanting “Liam” after every song, was followed with Gallagher coming back with “nice one” almost as much.
Millionaire was definitely a crowd pleaser but, For Anyone, a sensitive song, turned out to be the best of the evening. It showcased Gallagher’s voice as he actually sang, instead of rasping down the microphone.
The Roller, sounding as if it just came off one of the old Oasis albums, still brought the crowd being showered with all the drinks and showing that some things just never change.
The band, looking very relaxed, and less predictable and regimented, broke out in swirling psychedelic solos on the guitar and upbeat rock’n roll piano sounds.
The next hit was Bring The Light and the songs just kept coming after that, and then finally, The Beat Goes On, an anthemia rendition.
Everyone had been waiting, expecting this to be one of the best bands of the year, and they proved not to disappoint the crowd. The future for Beady Eye appears to have a terrific future ahead of them.

competition: guess who's the Roller girl and win Beady Eye tickets & pajama party with religious nuns ^_^

MILAN - Usually the competitions are too easy, so this is getting a bit difficult for you to find the answer (you have to be the English detective Sherlock Holmes :), and you can win the Beady Eye gig in magic Florence (the night before Pretty Green birthday & my birthday). I remember years ago before an Oasis gig, Liam was in a pub in Florence to listen to a Beatles cover band, so he probably wants to go around again, as they chose Florence instead of Rome. Many English people love Tuscany and have a house there, the most famous is Sting, where he makes wine and food. They even travel for single events in Milan, as cars events (I met a whole family with relatives from Leeds coming for the legendary Milan's Alfa Romeo), and the other day we met a couple from Manchester coming for the design capital's week. In a pub we were the only ones supporting Manchester City and it was such a pleasure to see all the United fans getting scared and then silent :D (I was eating a pizza and at the goal I almost choked :) and them going away much before the final whistle, and we had a big laugh seeing Noel Gallagher celebrating.
At Florence 2006, Liam even let a boy jump on the stage and even took a photo with him (!) at the end of Wonderwall.
You can take stunning pics in Florence, my advice is the Giardino delle Rose, Garden of Roses, beyond the river. For the Oasis gigs I used to go to the hotel-convent of religious nuns, lol. Because it was very close to the venue, and near the stadium, but now Beady Eye are playing at Saschall theatre. We could propose to the religious nuns a sleepover, "pajama party" ^_^ (of course Pretty Green pyjamas :), but I think this time I'm going to one by the river...more romantic :) and closer to the theatre.
Who's the girl in Beady Eye video The Roller? (not a religious nun, lol!)
send your answer to marco@oasisblues.com

"I live for now, not for what happens after I die. If I die and there's something afterwards, I'm going to hell, not heaven. I mean, the devil's got all the good gear. What's God got? The Inspiral Carpets and nuns. Fuck that."
(Liam)

for the religious nuns reading:
don't worry, however Liam has confessed going to church, but he claims to not "be looking for guidance." He also claims "some days I don't believe and some days I do believe". Also Liam claims to have had "a conversation with God one night".

Noel Gallagher, Johnny Marr, Ricky Hatton vs Tom Jones

STOKE-ON-TRENT - Footie City rivals Stoke and Manchester are set for an FA Cup Final song ding-dong – ­after unveiling plans to get top showbiz names in on the act.
Sources at mega-rich Manchester City claim the club is planning to ask some of Britain’s most famous Blues to perform a Band Aid-style charity single.
And legendary crooner Sir Tom Jones is in talks with Stoke to revamp his classic tune Delilah (famously covered in Italy, "La nostra favola" by Jimmy Fontana, "mai mai ti lascio, mai mai da sola..tu sarai sempre regina ed io il tuo re.." etc. lol).
The Sixties hit has long been a fans’ favourite at the Britannia Stadium and a spokesman said: “The club would be delighted if Tom agreed to re-do Delilah as the song for the FA Cup Final (14 May).
“The reaction of our supporters at Wembley for the semi-final – when Delilah was played over the PA system – was first class. It really helped make it feel like a home game.
“The song is sung by supporters at every game, home and away, and in particular when we score a goal. There were at least five renditions at Wembley for the 5-0 win over Bolton.”
In the Blue corner, Oasis songwriter Noel Gallagher has been sounded out to help pen a song to help good causes.
Other names in the mix include legendary Smiths guitarist Johnny Marr, TV funnyman Jason Manford, ex-boxing champ Ricky Hatton and former England cricket star Freddie Flintoff.
Gallagher, 43, recently admitted he wasn’t far off doing something for his beloved Blues.
And a Man City source said last week: “The club wants to get some big names for a worthwhile song – and get the players involved too.
“It’s still uncertain what will happen but having Noel Gallagher take part makes a lot of sense.”
Gallagher said: “Someone called me from the club and asked if they could bounce a few ideas off me. If they asked seriously I don’t know. Let’s wait till they ask.”
Over-the-moon Stoke fans say they would love veteran Sir Tom, 70, to re-release a version of Delilah for them.
Supporters’ club chairman Bryan Shaw said the song gives the players and fans a lift.
“It started a long time ago when fans were trying to think of a song to sing that didn’t have any swear words in it,” he said.
“Somehow Delilah was chosen and it was an instant favourite.”

Melissa is now single: striptease for AC Milan


MILAN - And after Saint George's day, happy Saint Mark day :), that was also the first name of Manchester City. ManCity Boateng brother, AC Milan Prince Boateng will dance as Michael Jackson to celebrate, but we boys want something else :). Do you remember one year ago, AC Milan was surprisingly almost winning the Italian league (but then didn't, mainly because of key players injured, and Inter Milan won) and AC Milan fan Melissa Satta (ex "velina" dancer on the most seen Italian tv programme), who was on Sports Illustrated, promised a "spogliarello", a striptease (strip what? :)...I wonder if there was something else to take off her body, as these photos are of bodypainting, she was already nude).
Some days ago she announced she's now single (we call her "Meliss"), she's no more with ex AC & Inter Milan striker Christian "Bobo" Vieri, who played for many teams, also Lazio, Juventus, Atletico Madrid, Fiorentina, Atalanta, etc. but usually "wags" (wives&girlfriends) and their footballers playing for many squads, when they quit football, they remain AC Milan fans (Ronaldo too), the best team to stay in your heart :D
The other day Melissa and Bobo had to see each other again in Milan (they didn't look very happy to see each other :), because of their fashion brand Sweet Years, opening a new shop. This brand is also managed by AC legend Paolo Maldini, meeting Liam Gallagher in Milan and exchanging Pretty Green gifts with him (rumours said they were collaborating in fashion, but it wasn't really true).
In this photos there's a big mistake made by Sports Illustrated: in the Italy symbol they painted on her, in the Usa (where she was born, in Boston, though she's Italian), a 3 stars logo, while Italy's got 4 stars since 2006, the most successful European nation (second in the world, first is Brazil with 5 World Cups), while AC Milan is still the most successfull club in history.
Melissssss, strip please :P

yeah very hard job, and not only the job ^_^


there's also a nice Milano mod Lambretta scooter by SY
I asked her if they can open again Baci&Abbracci restaurant
(another fashion brand by Christian Vieri and Cristian Brocchi), that was near me, a so nice place

English world champion Red Bull by Newey in Italy

TURIN - Though we support McLaren and don't like very much Mark Webber, the team winning the Formula 1 championship last year is Red Bull, that is also Austrian but created by the genius Adrian Newey (ex McLaren), with headquarters in Milton Keynes, England (there used to be Hollywood Milano events with Red Bull).
They're coming back to Italy for this event on Saturday in Torino.

Liam: Beady Eye will play in stadiums

LONDON - From the BBC.
We've had plenty of comments and emails about the interview - the vast majority of them being positive. Some asked why we would even want to speak to him but I think he's one of those people who you listen to even if you know what he says will make you angry.
He certainly plays up to the image of a rockstar but he was much wittier than I expected. You don't have to be called Sebastian (as he suggested in the interview) to be offended by some of his language but he has a good sense of humour and a sharp tongue.
Some people suggested I looked a little scared during the interview which I find a bizarre. I like interviewing people who make you work for the answers and a bit of confrontation goes a long way to making something watchable. I also maintain that there is nothing wrong with
the occasional tucked shirt! Having said that, I do take the point of the guy who tweeted me to say that if you're going to interview a style guru, with the hottest clothing line on the high street, you might want to iron your shirt!
Mark Woodward, the producer, did have to spend quite a bit of time editing out the choice language and there were some things Liam said - and did - that we couldn't put out even on a post-watershed version of Focus.
That said, I thought his opinions on City, Mancini, United, Rooney and football in general were well worth the airtime and, even if you're Gary Neville's biggest fan, his take on the former Manchester United defender brought a little smile to most faces.
Once the interview was over Liam had another dig at my shirt before saying he might bump into me at Wembley on Saturday. We didn't see each other at the Manchester derby but I'm sure he enjoyed himself.
Before we left I asked him for a picture for the blog. "Don't do that rock & roll face" I said "otherwise I'll look like the school prefect sitting next to the cool kid." "You do your face, I'll do mine" he replied. Sadly he did produce the rock & roll face leaving me to look like a slightly over-medicated buffoon.

It's not often I'd get nervous about an interview, but when Liam Gallagher walked into the residents bar of a hotel in Belfast, I knocked over a glass of water and near tripped over my headphones lead. Thankfully he didn't seem to notice, as he grabbed my hand and instantly became exactly the type of aggressively friendly character I'd prepared for. He opens with an apology.
'Andy Bell is messing about somewhere, he always tries to be late so he'll look cool. I don't need to bother with that.' Checking his watch, he boasts 'I'm always on time, me.'
He bounces about the room, explaining how he's still to come down following his experiences at Wembley Stadium - not for a gig (though 'stadiums will come again soon enough') but to enjoy Man City win the biggest match they've played in Liam's lifetime. He's surprisingly gracious when I explain I'm United. There's a good five minutes of him pacing about the room, asking me a load of questions about the hotel we're in and Belfast in general. I couldn't answer most of them and he gives me stick.
For some reason I explain how this is the first interview our show has done with a band not from Ireland in almost a year, that we've made an exception for him. I tell him the music here is so good our show is pretty much 100% 'local' these days. He asks for names of bands, so I tell him about Cashier, ASIWYFA, Rams Pocket Radio and The Wondervillians. I point out he'll probably hate them all equally. He laughs.
Finally Andy weighs in and the three of us chat for a good twenty minutes. I'm constantly chasing Liams mouth with the mic - he literally doesn't sit still for more than a second. I think about the edit we have ahead of us - Liam swears a LOT. Like, every third or fourth word. We're going to need a fair few beeps.
I don't want to bomb straight in with questions about Oasis or Liam's relationship with Noel. It seems a little crude and, in my head, could jeopardize the entire interview. So we chat about the frist Beady Eye gigs. But funnily enough, Liam's off on a rant about his big brother within a minute, questioning why he got off 'scott free'. He then claims his paranoia surrounding the issue of who was to 'blame' for Oasis' demise was so bad he actually thought him being bottled off the stage on that first gig in Glasgow wasn't out of the question. Andy seems a little taken aback by this idea. He'll think about it for a while before stopping me mid-question, half way through the interview to clarify - 'going back to that whole thing abut the paranoia - can I just say, the fans were beyond cool.'
And so it continues, Liam being as good an interview as I'd assumed - winding himself up constantly and over selling just how much he believes in Beady Eye. The number of swears increases as we go on. It's pretty infectious, to the point I start to worry I've started dropping the odd F-bomb myself. And then, a quick picture and I'm off, buzzing, texting a couple of people who were as obsessed with Oasis as I was, back in the day.
To listen to the interview click here, it starts at around the 1hr 30min mark.

ex ManCity Robinho scores the AC Milan goal to win the league

BRESCIA - "By the end of the year, people will call their kids Robinho", lol.  yessssssssssss breaking news, couldn't have a better Saint George's day (England-Milan flag). Big celebrations coming soon, maybe even next Sunday 1 May, 4 games before the end of the Serie A league 2010-2011 (in probable case of Inter Milan drawing in Cesena on Saturday and AC then winning vs Bologna), +8 points, thanks to tonight's goal by former Manchester City Robinho.
During this season he failed many easy chances but also scored many unexpected goals from him, so this is well deserved.
1 May in the afternoon, Milan-Bologna

Liam & Noel mock Fulham's Michael Jackson statue, that seems an inflatable doll

LONDON - Beady Eye frontman Liam Gallagher has described the Michael Jackson statue recently unveiled outside Fulham stadium as “ridiculous”.
The statue, revealed by the club’s chairman and Jackson’s friend Mohammed Al Fayed, has been widely criticised. It was originally commissioned for Harrods but Craven Cottage was chosen as an alternative venue when following the department store's sale.
Gallagher said he wasn’t a fan of the statue, that said “it could be worse”.
“It could be Justin Bieber, but that wouldn’t be that high then would it so you’d be able to walk over it,” he told BBC Football Focus. “I don’t know, it’s a bit silly isn’t it.”

Critics of the Jackson statue included Manchester United’s Rio Ferdinand, who said a statue should have been erected for a famous ex-Fulham player.
The footballer said: “Did Michael Jackson even like football??! What is a statue of the great man doing outside of the Fulham FC stadium?!
“Put a poster up not a statue!! A statue outside a stadium is for people who have achieved great things at that club not for 1 lil appearance!”
He added: “Al Fayed said he and Jacko were great friends....well put the statue up at YOUR house maaaaaaan!!”

Al Fayed said people who didn't like the statue could "go to hell". Jackson died in 2009 aged 50.
"Why is it bizarre? Football fans love it," he told BBC News.
"If some stupid fans don't understand and appreciate such a gift this guy gave to the world they can go to hell.
"I don't want them to be fans. If they don't understand and don't believe in things I believe in they can go to Chelsea, they can go to anywhere else.

Talking to TalkSport, also Noel Gallagher spoke about it. Time ago Noel attacked Jackson, not the statue.
The statue has faced criticism from Fulham fans and Noel said he thought the Jacko statue was ‘ludicrous’ but added: “but it’s also, I quite like it’.
He went on to say: “I’m getting my picture taken with it next time, that’s for sure”.
Noel also joked he would like to see himself ‘erected’ at Manchester City’s ground, ‘just for once’.

The statue is thought to have cost £100,000, and was Al Fayed’s way of paying tribute to Jackson, who he considered a great friend. Many have said that despite the sentiment behind it, a football ground is not the place for the statue.
I used to like Jackson and I know that he cared a lot about Africa: with all that money for an useless statue, thousands of people could eat, but Al Fayed preferred a ridiculous statue that seems a plastic inflatable doll for wankers.

Meanwhile, AC Milan bizarre star Prince Boateng said he's gonna dance as Michael Jackson to celebrate AC winning the league very soon.

Noel was the love of Meg's life

LONDON - Happy Saint George's day.
Photo: Noel, Anais and a beautiful Sara at the premiere of the film Arthur featuring Noel's friend Russell Brand the other day.
Some time ago it was Patsy Kensit about Liam, now Meg saying the same about Noel.
The former Oasis guitarist Noel Gallagher was married to interior designer Meg Mathews from 1997 to 2001 and they have an 11-year-old daughter Anais together, and despite their split Meg looks back fondly on their time together.
When asked if he was the love of her life, she replied: 'Of course. I wouldn't have married and had a baby with him if he hadn't been.'
Since they split, Noel has had two more children, Donovan, three, and six-month-old Sonny with his new partner, Sara MacDonald, but Meg has never remarried.
She was engaged to The Royal College of London Professor Peter Sidell, but she called it off last September and says she is not ready for a relationship at present, but hopes to settle down in the future.
Meg added to Hello magazine: 'I do want to be in a relationship again, just not right now. Do I want to be sitting alone with 10 cats when I'm 65? Absolutely not, and I don't intend to be.'

why in England everybody's drinking so much? drinking doesn't rock

MILAN - It's some time I wanted to write this post. Of course not only in England, but I see people drinking much also in other places, as Germany, East Europe, and especially some places in Italy as Veneto, Rome, etc.
You know I'm far from being a moralist, and I do drink more than enough, but so many English girls drinking so much it's not nice to see. Some say it's even "fashionable" there, but I tell you, from a different point of view, more than fashionable, it sucks.
If you think it's "trendy", really it's not. To be honest, if nobody ever told you, you look like idiots.
The same for footballers (worse, 'cause they even get a lot of money), and we see the results... oh but of course it's "Capello's fault, the Italian", according to tabloids. If I was the manager, they would have to obey as soldiers.
I'm not saying I have a "wonderful life" but if one drinks so much there must be something wrong, maybe it's just the place he/she live in.
I remember some years ago there was one of those "hilarious laws" in England, where drunk women had to wear "pretty briefs", because people find them lying along the streets and they had to appear "nice to see"... Not really a good solution for alcohol. It's like closing the fence when your cows already escaped and paint the fence.
Look also at profile pics on Facebook (when I see them I laugh, for not "crying"), it seems 90% of young people there, are always on alcohol, they always have a bottle in their hands and even think it's "cool". When you're 40, your liver will be fucked. They say it's fun, and "you live only once" but I think you can have fun without drinking.
Anyway, I doubt the quantity of alcohol the girls drink, is so big as it seems (often they drink just something and they're already drunk), but it's a matter of behaviour and about that "nice to see" and "fashionable" they think it is.
Take example from Liam and quit partying. Sort of :). At least, deny you were drinking. When he was drinking @ Primal Scream party (photos with beers in his hands), then he said he quit partying. When he was drinking (hard) some weeks ago in Milan, then he denied that. Really, drinking doesn't "rock" anymore.
When I happen to go to a party or a place where I drink, I leave without saying goodbye, don't know why :) ...as if I didn't like the people drinking, myself too :)
So start leaving parties before time, and you'll create an aura of mystery surrounding your absence :)
But don't use any excuse as “I'm just going to the bathroom”...that's for weak people :) ...just "phantom".

HALF of the UK's 15-year-old girls have been drunk at least twice, a report reveals.
The figure is almost DOUBLE the average in other wealthy countries.
A third of 13 to 15-year-olds have been hammered at least twice too - again the highest rate in the civilised world.
The study, which names Britain's teenage girls as the biggest binge-drinkers among rich, industrialised nations, was compiled by think-tank Demos.
It shows girls here are now more likely than boys to have been binge-drinking at least once in the last month.
One third of teenage girls said they have been "intoxicated" in that period - second only to Denmark in Europe.
A shocking 11 per cent admitted they had sex they later regretted while drunk. A quarter were injured or suffered an accident while sozzled.
Twenty-seven per cent of girls aged 16 to 24 had gone binge-drinking in the last week, against just 17 per cent in 1998.
The report, using figures from a host of studies, showed one third of girls aged 11 to 21 had drunk so much they'd "lost control" or been sick.
Just over half said they drank because of stress or to "forget their worries".
Demos deputy director Julia Margo said: "Across Europe, Britain has one of the worst problems with binge-drinking by teens - and girls here are drinking more than boys.
"This should worry ministers as the number of teenage girls that are also reporting that they are unhappy most of the time is on the increase."
Home Secretary Theresa May said: "These findings are further proof that Labour got it very wrong on alcohol."
Alcohol Concern chief executive Don Shenker said: "Ministers need to tackle this issue urgently."

speedy Beady Eye to play @ Formula One rocks Milan

MILAN - Beady Eye with their 1st album "Different Gear Still Speeding" and speeding with the second album :), are appropriate for this event, where Stereophonics (Gallaghers friends) played last year, @ Alcatraz, as Beady Eye. The afterparty was at Just Cavalli where Liam was recently. In September Beady Eye should play in Japan, if the situation will be alright there, but should play at this event, as they come to Milan so often and with pleasure.

Pretty Green @ Fashion rocks store

SHEFFIELD - Today, Fashion Rocks launched an ecommerce site, FR by Fashion Rocks.
The website gives the oppertunity to buy from some of the glamorous diffusion labels which are associated with star-studded annual fundraisers.
Fashion Rocks is famous for staging unique charity-based gigs around the world, which combine fashion and music.
Over the years, collections by the world's top designers, including Valentino, Dolce & Gabbana, Giorgio Armani, Prada, Stella McCartney, Alexander McQueen and Ralph Lauren, have been showcased alongside performances by stars such as Beyoncé, Mariah Carey, P. Diddy and Robbie Williams. London hosted the events in both 2003 and 2007.
Now, the designer online store fashionrocks.com , is offering over 67 diffusion brands including contemporary, ready-to-wear lines from major houses as well up-and-coming talents.
Some of the womenswear labels available to buy include, the actress, Sienna Miller and her sister, Savannah's label Twenty8Twelve; See By Chloe; Vivienne Westwood; and Alice By Temperley. Menswear includes Prada, Preen Line, and the former Oasis frontman Liam Gallagher's label, Pretty Green Black.
Fashion Rocks is linked to the Prince's Trust. FR by Fashion Rocks has set up the Fashion Rocks Foundation, a charitable foundation driving and nurturing new talent in design and music.

Natasha Cowan

I was speaking to Dean the other day, about PG shoes to have in Milan in my best friend shoes shop.

Pretty Green, Liam Gallagher's menswear label, is going from strength to strength and this season FR by Fashion Rocks had to get its hands on some of the gems in the collection. As our love for fashion and music is no secret, what better design brand than one created by a rock star. We caught up with Dean West, Sales Manager for Pretty Green, at our Sheffield store launch event and it was clear he's as excited about the clothes as we are.
"I've been banging on to the industry for years that a great rock star should create their own fashion brand, and when I heard Liam was creating Pretty Green I knew I really wanted to be a part of it.”
Dean's enthusiasm is understandable. Liam Gallagher is after all one of the most iconic rocks stars of the last 20 years, with a style which is instantly recognisable. Reinventing the 'mod' for a 90s generation, Liam had a whole legion of fans wearing tinted lens specs and parka jackets. Cut to 2011 and he's still a huge fashion influence, this time by creating one of the most interesting menswear brands available.
"Liam always wanted to develop his own clothing range and decided to go for it during the last Oasis tour in 2009. He sat down there and then, in LA I believe, and wrote the plan, came up with the name, drew the logo, sketched some designs – everything. Liam has impeccable taste and he would never want his name on an item he wouldn't buy himself. That's why there's so much of him in the designs.”
If there's one thing you can't fault Pretty Green on, it's the quality. They've recognised this strength and have now released an exclusive Black Label, which focuses on attention to detail and fine British tailoring. This, along with the consistent strength of their Green Label led to the Drapers 'Menswear Brand of the Year' award in 2010, a prestigious title by any means.
"Rock and roll is instinctively sewn into the clothing. All the guys in Liam's band 'Beady Eye' love it and we have musicians from all over the world wanting to get their hands on something. I've been working in the fashion industry for many years and the attitude that Pretty Green has managed to capture is unlike any I've ever seen.”
So what's next for the brand which seems to have reached the top in less than 2 years?
"We want to develop our pairing of music and fashion, and I'm excited to say we're doing working on a collection designed by Paul Weller. Paul has been a fan of the brand since the beginning and has already shown a range of designs for a collection to Liam. We'll be launching it through our own stores and on line initially."
Pretty Green is already a favourite for men across the country, so it's difficult to know how you can improve, but if there's any rock star who can add a little something to Liam's aesthetic, it's definitely the Modfather himself.

Beady Eye to play in Russia

MOSCOW - We anticipate Beady Eye again :), 2 June: Глав Club (GlavClub), Saint Petersburg (the most beautiful women in the world :), as I was saying some days ago about this city, sister of Milan), 4 June: Milk, Moscow. 
A Gallagher back to East Europe, after Budapest 2000 (Oasis) and Moscow 2007 (Noel, acoustic tour).
I remember when Oasis had to play in Russia (September 2009) but it was just a rumour and as I was writing there I knew they were going to split.
Noel Gallagher acoustic tour 2007 with Gem
There is a light that never goes out, by The Smiths

Лиэм Галлахер, бывший участник группы Oasis, после распада коллектива, решил попробовать себя в роли модельера и выпустил свою линию одежды, названную Pretty Green. Однако, как оказалось, музыканту это занятие очень понравилось, и он даже думал начать карьеру модельера.
Так вероятно все бы и случилось, и возможно Лиэм Галлахер сменил бы профессию музыканта на профессию модельера, но благодаря хорошим отношениям со своими коллегами по уже бывшей группе Oasis, Галлахер решил не бросать карьеру музыканта.
Лиэм создал новую группу под названием Beady Eye. В новый музыкальный коллектив группы Beady Eye вошли его хорошие приятели, трое бывших участников группы Oasis: Крис Шэррок, Гем Арчер и Энди Белл.
О своих приятелях и о работе над брендом Pretty Green музыкант в интервью журналистам рассказал, что без них не было бы группы, и возможно он стал бы модельером:
Я никогда не сомневался в том, стоит ли мне работать с ними. Без них никогда не было бы новой группы. Скорее всего, я бы все свое внимание уделял Pretty Green, забыв о музыке.
Новый альбом группы Beady Eye Лиэм Галлахер называет лучшей работой, хотя «Definitely Maybe» группы Oasis музыкант считает более удачной работой, но коллектив лучше в новой группе:
Состав музыкантов подобрался лучше, чем у Oasis на Definitely Maybe. Я пою так же хорошо, как и всегда. Этот альбом великолепен, сомнений быть не может. Он станет настоящим хитом.

Beady Eye to release a great 2nd album soon

LONDON - Ex-Oasis loudmouth Liam Gallagher has promised fans that the 2nd album of his band Beady album will be released sooner rather than later.
After the success of their first album 'Different Gear Still Speeding' which was released back in February, Liam is adament that as soon as the band get they have finished promoting their first album, they will be back in the studio recording.
Oasis split up after Liam had differences with other bandmate and brother Noel, which resulted in Noel leaving.
Liam then ventured onto his own musical path setting up Beady Eye in 2009.
Liam said: "We're not going to put the ball down, sit around in a big house and go 'We're great'. We won't be booking into the studio for months and months on end."
We're not going to be rolling over this album into the next year. There will be an awesome second album coming soon. We're responsible for our every move. We're on our own label. We do all our own artwork and videos. It's not like, 'Oh, send that off to the visual arts person'."
The album reached number 1 in Japan, 3 in the UK and has subsequently gone gold.

Pretty Green-fans donation for the Teenage Cancer Trust

NEWCASTLE - Tonight Beady Eye in Newcastle. Liam Gallagher visited the Great North Children's Hospital, Teenage Cancer Trust Unit in Newcastle today, to meet with patients and staff.
Whilst there, Liam presented a cheque for £40K on behalf of his Pretty Green label. The charitable donation came from the sales of a limited edition t-shirt Liam designed earlier in the year.
Talking of his visit, Liam says:
"Those young people are inspirational, I hope that this makes a difference to them and that it has helped raise awareness of teenage cancer. Teenage Cancer Trust is Pretty Greens chosen charity and we will continue to support them".
Liam and the team from Pretty Green would like to thank everyone who purchased the Limited Edition Tambourine t-shirt and pin badge package.
Andy Bell (Beady Eye) also accompanied Liam on this visit..
Teenage Cancer Trust Nurses deliver new opportunities and excellent services for young people with cancer and their families.
Background to the Great Northern Children's Hospital:
Sarah Ferguson, Duchess of York and Princesses Beatrice and Eugenie officially opened Teenage Cancer Trust’s new state-of-the-art unit in Newcastle in May 2010. They were joined by The Who frontman Roger Daltrey CBE and local star Joe McElderry.
The unit is the result of a £1.7 million fundraising appeal and will provide care for 13 to 18 year olds with cancer from across the North East and Cumbria.
The new unit in Newcastle includes 10 inpatient beds and will provide a home from home for many young people and their families. Unlike ‘ordinary’ hospital wards, it has been designed specifically with teenagers in mind. It includes a recreational room, kitchen and dining area, a study, parents’ room and kitchen, a complementary therapy room and chill out zone plus access to media facilities such as the internet, TV and music.
Pretty Green would like to thank all of our followers and fans for helping make this donation possible.

Mario generous to tramps selling the Big Issue

MANCHESTER - Well...ahaha sorry to the people who sell the Big Issue who are not tramps, lol.
Generous football star Mario Balotelli (who already has activities for poor people in Africa) gave £1,000 to a tramp outside a casino - after a whopping £25,000 win.
The Manchester City striker, 20, shared his windfall on a night out with Blackburn Rovers ace Chris Samba.
Balotelli - who earns £100,000 a week after signing from Inter Milan for £24million last year - is said to often give cash to homeless people he sees around Manchester. His latest act of kindness came outside the city's 235 Casino last week.
A source said: "Mario is really generous. He always hands £20 notes to the Big Issue men (Oasis' Supersonic: "selling the Big Issue" :), without taking the magazine. There's a guy he always sees around town with ginger dreadlocks and a beard. He carries his possessions in two carrier bags.
"He was outside the club in the early hours so Mario handed him a wad of notes after his big win. The tramp couldn't believe his luck. It was enough to keep him going for months."
Balotelli has frequently hit the headlines for his off-the-pitch antics. At the weekend he had a scuffle with Manchester United defender Rio Ferdinand after City's 1-0 win in the FA Cup semi-final. Last month he got an official warning for throwing darts at youth team players at his club's Carrington training ground. That followed his sending off against Dynamo Kiev. His fines now total £300,000 in one season.

Russian spy agent loves Liam doubles

LONDON - Sex bomb spy Anna Chapman sensationally broke her silence over life as a Russian agent yesterday - and claimed she was proud to be British.
The redhead beauty, 29, became a UK citizen when she married Brit Alex Chapman in 2001.
But her dual-nationality passport was revoked by horrified ministers last year after she was unmasked as a Moscow spook.
Speaking to The Sun, in her first-ever Western interview, Anna said: "Everything beautiful comes to an end at some point and there is always a new stage and better road to start walking on.
"My time in Britain has made me better in so many ways that it's hard to tell what I would be if it wasn't for London. It was certainly my honour to be part of this nation, even for a short while."
Anna was part of a ten-strong Russian spy ring nabbed by the FBI in America last year.
The Eastern superpower was forced to trade four imprisoned Western agents in a dramatic spy swap in July - and Anna was returned with her comrades to Moscow.
Meanwhile, shocked ex-husband Alex, 31, was left wondering if his five-year marriage to Anna had been a sham all along.
But stunning Anna now denied seducing Alex to provide the perfect cover story for her undercover missions.
She insisted: "My marriage to Alex was based purely on mutual love. I still remember the days we spent together with real tenderness and nostalgia. I ask you not to look for 'secret motives' where there aren't any. It was love at first sight, which only grew stronger every day."
Anna, a diplomat's daughter, began dating former public schoolboy Alex after they met at a rave in London's Canary Wharf in 2001.
Pals doubted their relationship but Anna last night told how she had fallen head over heels for Alex because he looked just like Oasis frontman Liam Gallagher (lol).
Pouring out her heart, Anna said: "Everything linked to Alex was soaked with true English culture, it was unbelievable. It was so natural and beautiful to fall in love with someone representing something I was so curious about. It took me precisely one minute to fall madly in love with him. Every time he opened his mouth I enjoyed his beautiful manner of speaking, I was captivated by his accent. Whenever he rolled his tobacco and wore his loose-hanging jeans, with his Clarks shoes and Liam Gallagher-style hair, it took my breath away. His manly beauty, I would even say his aristocratic beauty, seemed simply ideal to me. I had neither the strength nor desire to fight this beautiful feeling which opened a whole new fairytale world for me."
The couple's whirlwind romance saw them wed in Russia five months later - even though Anna was then just 19 and Alex only 21.
The ceremony was held in total secrecy at a Moscow register office with no family members present and a single stranger as a witness.
Alex, from Stuckton, Hants, wore an ill-fitting dinner suit rented from a nearby menswear store while Anna was in a simple dress.
There were no rings because neither could afford them.
Anna, dubbed "Agent 90-60-90" by Russians because of her vital statistics in centimetres, recalled: "We married secretly in Moscow and it was very romantic.
"Our parents knew nothing about our relationship and plans. Most likely they would not have approved the marriage, though later I was close to Alex's mother and father. I had on my school graduation dress. I only wore it three times, my big day at school, the day I met Alex and when we married."
The wedding meant she landed a UK passport - and with it the perfect cover for a secret agent in London.
The newlyweds set up home in Stoke Newington, north London, and later in South Kensington, west London, while Anna held down jobs at Barclays and at a private jet firm.
Alex's pals' suspicions were aroused further as Anna began mixing with rich and powerful Russian ex-pats in the capital.
In 2006 the couple split. Anna moved to New York on the orders of her Moscow paymasters in February last year.
At the time of her arrest for spying last June, heartbroken Alex admitted: "It's just totally weird to think that my ex-wife could be involved in something like this."
Anna is sure Alex will find love again.
She said: "Alex is an incredible, talented person who still hasn't yet found himself in this life. But I have faith things will become better and he will find his happiness because he does know how to love and care for a woman. He had such a tenderness in his touch, his looks, his words. When you truly love someone, you become one. This was how we were. We could not make decisions without each other."
Anna is banned from speaking about her work for Russia's SVR security service, their MI6. Since her return to Moscow she has become one of the country's biggest celebrities and is tipped to become an MP in November.
She also has her own TV show and has appeared in a sexy modelling shoot for Russia's Maxim magazine.
Yet she is still furious with both Alex and another Brit ex-boyfriend, Marcus Read, 38, for releasing photos of her. Nude pictures taken by Read appeared in Playboy and Anna blasted: "I don't know whether he was forced by someone to do this or was paid for it. I don't want to blame anyone before I know that. Frankly speaking, I don't think I want to go into finding out. But it's clear whoever organised this has definitely achieved his goal. It made me so miserable. It actually made me cry for the first time in a very long period. So, congratulations, you have done it. After everything I have been through in recent months, the pictures in Playboy were like the final blow. It made me really down."
Alex refused to comment after Anna told how she was "shocked and horrified" by interviews he gave following her arrest.
But the defiant spy showed no guilt despite her trail of treachery.
Instead she insisted: "Am I a patriot? Of course I am. Patriotism shows itself in one's deeds."
