Liam Gallagher Says He’s Not Interested In Being A Muso
Former Oasis frontman Liam Gallagher recently joined an interview with MOJO Magazine and reflected on his thoughts about being a muso. Then, Gallagher revealed details about creating, composing, and writing songs by highlighting his approach to them.
Liam Gallagher has pursued a prolific and successful career since hitting the rock stage as an Oasis member. He continued playing with Beady Eye, which they formed following the band’s split. He’s also a famous solo artist who released two studio albums and is about to drop the third, ‘C’mon You Know.’
Thus, Gallagher’s fans and the young generation of musicians that wanted to follow his steps at the beginning of their careers wondered whether the singer was a muso or not. Muso means a person who is very into music to the extent of being a perfectionist. During his recent conversation, Gallagher stated that he has never been like that, and he doesn’t overthink lyrical themes, their subject matter, and the specific equipment.
According to the Oasis vocalist, the important thing about writing music is to sound good while he is performing it, and it’s enough for the musician. Gallagher added that he knows that many people want to be a muso to signify a musician’s efforts to create deep, meaningful, and well-crafted songs, but he’s not interested.
Here’s what Gallagher said:
“I don’t overthink it. If it sounds good and I sound good when I sing it, it’s all right with me. If it sounds forced, I f*ck it off. I know a lot of people want that muso sh*t, but I’m not interested.“
However, because his brother and former bandmate, Noel Gallagher, wrote almost every song from Oasis albums until his departure, the singer didn’t have to overthink the lyrics and sounds for many years. This situation and being an effortless musician possibly affected his perspective on his works.
