These past few weeks of summer, alternative rock artist Liam Gallagher has been making quite the stir within the music industry. From one outlandish deed to the next, the media is all in talks about what the headlines will say next about the 44-year-old former frontman of Oasis.
To say the least, in a recent (and totally profane) interview with Huck at the beginning of the month, Gallagher responded to a comment by journalist Cian Traynor regarding the thought that DJs could be taking the place of the original rockstar.
“Did they?” he asked sarcastically. “Not in my world, they haven’t. What, Calvin f**kin’ Harris? The most boring f**king person? F**k off, mate… I’ll tell you what they’ve become: the new accountants!”
Later, when asked if he considers himself to be the greatest living icon in the history of rock, Gallagher said, “Others have said it and I do believe they’re not f**king wrong.”
“I think people are starting to realise what they’ve been missing,” he continued. “Someone who’s completely 100 per cent into it; someone who doesn’t bullsh*t people or stand for bullsh*t.”
Ultimately, on songwriting and its tedious process, which sometimes involve heartbreak and other forms of great strife to work from, Gallagher only has the very best things to say.
“I do feel the best songs come out of people who have really lived, without a doubt. If everything’s rosy all the time, you’re just going to be f**kin’ James Blunt or whatever. You need a bit of shit goin’ down, you know what I mean?”
As it was announced this past spring, Liam Gallagher’s debut studio album As You Were lands October 6 via Warner Bros. Records.
