Liam Gallagher To Play A Concert With Richard Ashcroft Later This Year


The former Oasis frontman is set to launch his solo career this year, and his close friend and fellow rocker has let slip that they will be performing live together at some point in 2017.

Asked whose offer he would accept if both Liam and his brother Noel Gallagher - his former bandmate who he has barely spoken to since Oasis ended in 2009 - Richard said: "I would have to politely tell them both that I had something else on and stay at home.

"I played a show with Noel a few months ago and I'm playing with Liam later in the year."

Richard - who became pals with Liam when he was fronting fellow British band The Verve, with the two acts regularly touring together in the 90s - won't be giving Liam any advice on going it alone, but thinks his return to music will be welcomed as there are few people as outspoken as the 'Songbird' singer.

The 'Lucky Man' singer told Q magazine: "I wouldn't be daft enough to give Liam any advice on going solo. He can just be himself and do what he loves and people will connect to it. We miss those characters, these people with an opinion. Most people just don't [give an opinion] unless they believe they're getting some sort of PC credit. Then they're out there, appeal after appeal, holding babies and making everyone feel really guilty and miserable around Christmas."

To date, 44-year-old Liam's only announced solo show is at Bergenfest in Norway in June, but Richard, 45, is not one of the artists currently named on the bill.

Richard inspired Oasis' track 'Cast No Shadow' from their seminal 1995 album '(What's The Story) Morning Glory?' but he admits he has no idea what Noel, 49, meant by the lyrics.

He said: "I think it's one of the best tunes Noel's ever written as well.

"It's a great honor to be a part of that and then when the album exploded like that it was just great. I was buzzing. I think it was almost an afterthought [for Noel] but there were so many gags at the time because I was so thin, 'Is it because he's so thin that he casts no shadow, is that what it's about?'

"I did say to him, 'Am I a vampire? What are you trying to say, man?'"

Ewan McGregor Compares Trainspotting To Oasis


It's been twenty years since Ewan McGregor ruined bathrooms for you forever, and the star of the upcoming Trainspotting sequel was a bit hesitant to revisit the familiar territory of the '90s cult classic. (Not literally, though. We don't know a ton about the movie just yet, but it's hard to believe that Renton would ever, ever, ever ever ever make a point to go back to that filthy WC after two decades. Shudder.)

In a candid interview with the Guardian, McGregor talks about his reunion with Trainspotting director Danny Boyle, how the sequel has the hard-partying blokes of the first flick patching up old friendships, and how, exactly, Oasis factors into the Trainspotting equation.

Apparently, McGregor read Porno — Irving Welsh's follow-up to Trainspotting, and the inspiration for T2 — and he didn't love it as much as he loved the first novel. That's where the Gallagher brothers and (What's the Story) Morning Glory? get involved, in McGregor's mind, anyway.

“I wasn’t touched by it in the same way, and I didn’t want anything to tarnish the film," he told the Guardian. "No one wants to make a shite sequel. Trainspotting was the Oasis of the film world, something quite amazing.”

The Oasis connection doesn't stop there: McGregor was a huge fan of Supersonic, the documentary about the Manchester rock act, which he watched shortly following the conclusion of T2's production. It conjured up a ton of '90s nostalgia for him, which was fitting, given the iconic status both Trainspotting and Oasis share thanks to that particular era.

"It really slayed me," he gushed, revealing his cards his "schoolboy fanaticism" for Oasis. "Watching that film, I really wanted to go back. Just being out there and having a great time, and being a part of what the '90s has become in my mind. I remember seeing Radiohead in Cork in a field, just after Trainspotting had come out, and feeling like part of it all… Anyway, I loved that documentary. I mean, I loved it and I hated it. Because it made me so sad and it made me so happy.”
