Liam Gallagher has backtracked on his recent claim that Oasis will never reform. Gallagher had said last month (read story on UG) that the band would never get back together. But in a new interview with Thequietus.com, the singer has now said he won't rule out such a reunion. Asked what his reaction would be if Oasis were asked to reform for money in the future, Gallagher replied: "I'm not going to say 'never', but at the moment no f-cking chance." He added: "But it wouldn't be for money, mate. I like to think that if we did get back together - which we f-cking won't - but if we did then it would be for the fans. It would be for the people and the music and not for f-cking money." The singer also hinted that he can see an end to the long-running feud with his brother Noel. "There's a lot of people involved in it without mentioning any names but I don't feel the need to go round to his f-cking house and have the door slammed in my face," he said. "There's no encouragement from any parties whereas if there was then it would get sorted." Gallagher's new band Beady Eye release their debut album "Different Gear, Still Speeding" (February 28). Thanks for the report to Nme.com.

    Liam should be licking Noel's balls for the rest of his life in thanks for Noel giving him a career. All that wanker Liam ever did was whine into a mic with his hands behind his back and his Lennon sunglasses, Noel did all the songwriting.

    You are ignorant, and your spelling and grammar are mere proof of it.

    This. Then Kanye West can claim they're going to be bigger than the Beatles.

Quite ironic considering you just ripped off the opinion of a thousand music journalists! Hypocrite. Oasis should never reform but they are one of the greatest bands to come out of Britain. Their songs will last eons into the future.
    hes entitled to an opinion and besides the fact they think so too could mean there is a shred of truth behind it

    Richard Ashcroft signed my Gibson acoustic. I'm not even lying. I met him in Melbourne. It's got nothing to do with this though.

    This guy can't even get through an interview without saying "f-ck" every third or fourth word. Seems like a bit of an egomaniacal, bitter douche to me.

    Probably. And yeah, I'm a little confused by Noel not saying massively retarded shit either.

    I suppose the idea of artistic expression and pure musical joy as reasons to start a band basically died a long time ago then...

    I'm pretty sure it is ALL about the money. He's probably realizing he'll never be as big as Oasis now

    Because one person lives under a rock, Liam Gallagher is irrelevant?

    A Thousand music journalists? That seems like quite a few experienced people agree with each other.

    This band should be featured in an MTV reality show. It would be the closest related thing to music on MTV since 2000.

    Oh I would like them to get back together. But I would prefer them to "put up or shut up."

    I don't mean that I don't think people like Oasis and would want to see a reunion - I just think the constant drama of Oasis, Aerosmith, Guns, and Van Halen as of late is a load of shite, and it needs to stop. When something actually happens, tell us about it. Until then, they all need to either work it out or leave everybody else alone. Nobody really cares how much you hate/don't hate/hate/don't hate/etc etc the other people you used to be in a band with.
