Liam Gallagher On What Is Missing In Today’s Rock Stars
Former Oasis singer Liam Gallagher recently talked about pop music stars and rock stars’ general attitudes. He mentioned that today’s rock stars are not the same as in the ’60s, ’70s, and ’80s.
Liam Gallagher is one of the most well-known rock stars of the ’90s. After performing with his band Oasis, he became an international musician. His feuds and dramatic relationship with his brother and Oasis’ lead guitarist Noel have attracted much attention. Oasis disbanded in 2009, and the brothers’ feuds became a top reason for them not to reunite.
Currently, they have minor disputes here and there on social media and are known not to see each other anymore. Their relationship caused a well-appreciated rock band to part ways as their attitudes toward each other made it impossible to continue. Following the disbandment, Liam Gallagher continued his career solo.
In a recent interview with The Project, he talked about rock stars nowadays and how they don’t have what they had back in the day. He stated that pop stars are allowed to go softer, but rock stars are getting boring since nobody seems willing to get in trouble. According to him, this is all related to mobile phones and cameras became they became prone to showing off.
Here is what he stated about rock stars nowadays:
“Popstars are alright. They’re allowed to go around and be a bit soft now because that’s what it says on the tin, doesn’t it? But rock and roll stars, no one seems to be getting in trouble. They are on the line like good little sheep; it’s terrible, isn’t it?”
When asked about its reason, Liam replied:
“I don’t know, mobile phones or cameras maybe. If mobile phones were around in the ’60s, ’70s, and the ’80s, Keith Moon probably would have gotten up to what he was doing because he didn’t give a f*ck. But with phones and cameras, everyone is sort of showing off.”
