The death of Beady Eye

Posted on November 3rd, 2014

Hope everyone’s ok with the Beady Eye split. Tough times all round. Is there a helpline like when Take That broke up? Probably not.

Rock historians and trivia fans will note that former Beady Eye singer Liam Gallagher was once in a band named Oasis with his brother Noel.

I was in the Brit Awards Presenter B Team with John McVie and Linda Lusardi back in 1996 when Noel announced to Michael Hutchence of INXS that ‘Has-beens shouldn’t give awards to gonna-bes’…

‘Noel,’ I said with uncanny prescience for the time ‘this is 1996, the only thing Oasis are ‘gonna be’ is a crushing disappointment.’
