It’s a new year but the same old Liam Gallagher trolling of his brother Noel, as he wasted no time in getting in a dig at his rival sibling.
The 48-year-old singer only waited until 2021 was 51 minutes old before he called out Noel, 53, about an Oasis reunion, much to the delight of the band’s fans.
Liam has been asking his big brother to have a change of heart over getting the old band back together for quite a while now, and every time the big festivals release their line-ups there is a hope that Noel has relented.
Noel has forged a successful career with his High Flying Birds band and has always dismissed speculation or just completely ignored Liam’s missives.
Liam has laid down a marker early in the year this time, by tweeting: “HNY Noel love you long time 2021 is our year c’mon you know LG x”
Liam appeared on The Jonathan Ross Show in November and claimed that Noel had turned down the pair netting £100million for a set of reunion gigs.
Liam told Jonathan Ross: “When someone offers you 100 million pounds to do a few gigs and that man, you’re going to go, ‘Alright then yeah…’ there was a lot of money knocking about.
“It was 100 million pounds to do a tour and that and I’m thinking, ‘I’m not a d***head, know what I mean? I’ll have a bit of that.’ He’s not into it is he? He’s after a knighthood isn’t he?”
He also said Noel was currently the issue stopping a reunion and took no blame for their differences.
The pair had various difficulties while touring and recording together in the band in the 1990s and early 2000s, the final straw came when Noel quit the band in 2009.
Noel said in a statement that he couldn’t work with Liam for “a day longer”.
The elder Gallagher had said of Liam to NME: “I don’t know who the guy is who’s in these interviews, he seems really cool, because the guy I’ve been in a band with for the last 18 years is a f*****g k***head.”
He later described Liam to Q magazine as “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,” added Noel.
Liam went on to sue his older brother for libel but dropped the case after Noel apologised to him.
Noel went on to have a successful solo music career and created a new band – The High-Flying Birds – in 2011.
However, Liam couldn’t shy away from a dig and referred to them on Twitter as the “High-Flying Turds”.
