from Red Bull: Liam: people were asking me about new Oasis record +Monza

BRUSSELS - (photo in Verona) The Belgium race's gone and as every September when Monza comes, the victorious world champion, still first, Red Bull Racing (headquarters in Milton Keynes, England, born from the ashes of Jaguar, named in Oasis songs, main man: the genius Adrian Newey) is publishing something about Liam, now proper because of his 'speeding' album often naming cars.
Liam Gallagher and his band Beady Eye were born after the least surprising, most talked-about rock ’n’ roll breakdown in 40 years. Two years on, as The Red Bulletin finds when meeting him halfway round a first world tour, putting shows before bros makes a former angry young man very happy.
The side door of the tour bus hisses open like a space-age air lock and Liam Gallagher steps out into light Brussels rain. He throws a heavy holdall over one shoulder, lowers his sunglasses from his mop of Brian Jones hair, fixes them over his eyes and swaggers his way past gawping shoppers in the direction of the hotel lobby. It’s the exit of a seasoned pro; a man who has spent much of the past two decades alighting from luxury coaches in cities all over the world. As the singer of Oasis, Gallagher has stayed in some of the finest hotels on the planet. But he’s not in Oasis any more, and while this particular Sofitel has a certain amount of glitter, it is still a star or two below his norm. You see, things have changed for Liam over the past two years, but as he will tell you, they’ve changed for the better.
Up on the hotel’s roof garden, with Italian espresso and cigarettes, wearing a camouflage wind-breaker from his Pretty Green clothing range, his piercing blue eyes now unshaded, Gallagher sits back and blows a plume of smoke into the sky, and thinks about his switch from Oasis to new band Beady Eye. “I think I wasn’t in a band for about one beer,” he says. “That’s how long it took for us to decide to keep going. There was never any doubt in our minds that we weren’t going to knock it on the head. We’ve got to be in there. People need us. We need it. I mean, what else was I going to do? Work in McDonald’s?”
Gallagher maintains that his older brother Noel Gallagher “had had enough of Oasis” and just wanted an excuse to leave. At a press conference in July this year, launching his solo project The High Flying Birds and his two forthcoming albums, Noel rejected that idea, saying simply that he’d “just had enough of Liam”.
After 18 years of ecstatic highs and violent lows, combustible and controversial British rock band Oasis – perhaps the last to truly deserve the battered crown of hell-raising handed down by the likes of Led Zeppelin, The Who and the Sex Pistols – finally imploded. Only those who were there really know what went on backstage at the Rock en Seine festival near Paris on August 28, 2009. Despite allusions
to the reasons behind the split and the conflicting accounts of the two main protagonists, the true nature of events remains a mystery. What is known is that the fight between Liam and Noel, just minutes before the band were about to go on stage, was serious enough to finally rip the band apart for good.
Read the full story in the September issue of The Red Bulletin (there are some pages about Liam).

The final European race of the season has never had the pleasure of a Red Bull Racing driver on the podium yet.
But, Sebastian Vettel did win in the colours of our Italian sister team Scuderia Toro Rosso in 2008 during his debut F1 season. Aged just 21 years and 74 days, Seb became F1’s youngest-ever pole-sitter and race winner.
Since then, Sebastian has secured an eighth place for us in 2009, and fourth last year. Our only other points-scorer in Italy is Mark Webber, who came sixth in 2010 and eighth in 2008.
This will be the 82nd grand prix staged at Monza, with the race dating all the way back to 1922, although the first Italian GP took place at Brescia a year earlier. Monza has featured on the modern calendar every year since F1’s inception in 1950, save for 1980 when the race was run at Imola. The setting is fantastic, in a royal park - complete with "palazzo" - on the outskirts of Milan, and you can still see, and visit, the old banking and stands, which were last used in 1961 after a terrible accident claimed the lives of Ferrari driver Wolfgang Von Trips and 14 spectators.
The only true low downforce track, Monza’s the quickest of the lot. It’s all about raw power here, with long, long straights and fast corners – there are 11 turns on its 5.793 lap. The race is 53 laps, a distance of 306.720km.
The lap record is held by Rubens Barrichello who did 1:21.046 in 2004, while Michael Schumacher has the most number of wins here, with five to date.
Spectators are spoilt for choice when it comes to places to visit, with Lake Como (Liam Gallagher knows something about it :) just a short drive to the north and the cultural delights and glamorous nightlife of Milan on the doorstep.
