Liam Gallagher thinks his brother Noel is ''a bit nice''.

The former Oasis rocker sees a lot of similarities between himself and ''twisted'' John Lennon, whereas he thinks his older sibling and ex-bandmate is more like Beatles bassist Sir Paul McCartney.

He told NME: ''I'd say both Lennon and McCartney were very different, but both great.

''I like Lennon's stuff more because it's a bit more beautiful and a bit more mad. McCartney's was like Noel, he's a bit nice. Lennon was more twisted and I like that s**t.''

Liam and Noel have rarely spoken since the guitarist sparked the demise of Oasis by quitting the band following a fight before a Paris gig in 2009 but they appear to have finally patched up their relationship after the ex-Beady Eye frontman went to see his sibling play with his new band Noel Gallagher's High Flying Birds on tour.

The 42-year-old frontman took to his Twitter account at the weekend to post a picture of his Access All Areas backstage pass to the concert.

He captioned the photo: ''Keeping it in the family...LG x''

Liam also took to his Twitter account throughout the week to wish his older sibling luck ahead of his shows in Manchester and London.

One cryptic post read: ''Hometown Gig Monday night, Keeping it Dangerous LG x (sic)''

Noel, 47, recently revealed he and his younger brother - who fronted the band Beady Eye until they split last year - were on speaking terms again and spoke at soccer matches when they both go to support their favourite team Manchester City.

He said: ''I see him at the football and we talk.''

In another interview, he said: ''He sends me cheeky texts from time to time. He texted me the other night asking when my duet with Robbie Williams was coming out. He's all right.''
