Some might say… it’s time Liam and Noel Gallagher took their own advice
THE warring Gallagher brothers were serenaded by their respective fans singing Don’t Look Back In Anger at Glastonbury… but both Liam and Noel failed to heed their own advice.
They ignored the message of the song’s lyrics by refusing to meet up at the festival. And they took their feud to another level by seeming to compete over who had the biggest Hollywood star as a drinking buddy.
Liam, 44, playing his first Glasto solo gig, sang an a cappella version of Don’t Look Back In Anger on the Other stage on Saturday night. He dedicated the song to victims of the Manchester terror attack and the Grenfell Tower fire and urged his audience — including David Beckham — to join in, saying: ‘You good people look after each other and have loads of f***ing fun.’
On the other side of Worthy Farm Noel — who performed lead vocals on the original in 1995 — had his own crowd singing the iconic track as he introduced a screening of Oasis documentary Supersonic. Noel, 50, had been mauled by Liam for opting to remain on holiday in Italy, snubbing the One Love Manchester tribute concert earlier this month.
However, Noel told his festival audience that when he saw the minute’s silence for Manchester victims on TV, followed by mourners breaking into the song: ‘For the first time in my life, I was f***ing speechless. I was honestly taken aback. Even now, I still don’t know what to say… the fact that people rallied around this song.’
The Gallaghers’ sibling rivalry then rumbled on in a popularity contest. Having vowed to skip the debauchery on offer and watch Love Island on TV in his room after his set, Liam was coaxed out to play by Johnny Depp.
The Hollywood star may have felt he needed a stiff drink after being forced to apologise for a joke he made earlier at the festival about Donald Trump being assassinated.
Liam helped Depp, 54, drown his sorrows in a luxury tepee by drafting in vodka, beer and champers where they partied with Liam’s girlfriend Debbie and his sons Lennon, 17, and 15-year-old Gene.
Noel had laid down the gauntlet earlier, when he was seen dancing until 7am on Saturday with Brad Pitt, 53, and Beckham, 42, at the Rabbit Hole bar.
