Former Oasis front man grumbles at his elder brother buying the hatchet with one-time rivals
It was a lovely moment, one where the old rivalries of Britpop came together in aid of charity, with former Oasis guitarist Noel Gallagher burying the hatchet with Blur’s Damon Albarn and Graham Coxon to get together and sing the latter’s 1999 hit ‘Tender’ at the Royal Albert Hall for the Teenager Cancer Trust.
However, you could bet your bottom dollar that one man would be sitting at home, watching it on TV (we’re not sure if it actually was on TV) smoking a fag and drinking from a bottle of Jack Daniels while cursing at his older brother. Liam Gallagher’s probably a lot tidier than that actually, the fact he has a clothing line now suggests he takes care of his appearance, but for the purposes of this story and the need to paint him out in bitterness we’re going to go with this. Sure enough, as he watch Noel sing along the backing vocals to the triumphant sounding rendition, Liam reached for his phone and tweeted "Don't know what's worse RKID sipping champagne with a war criminal or them backing vocals you've just done for BLUE ! LG x (sic).” We presume the “war criminal” he was referencing there was Tony Blair.
Noel and Liam have been on bitter terms ever since Oasis split up in 2009, with both going on to form their own separate groups and both continuing to play Oasis songs in their sets. Oasis and Blur’s feud reached it’s height in 1995 when they went head to head for the number one singles spot with their hits ‘Roll With It’ and ‘Country House,’ but the elder Gallagher has since warmed to Blur, and the pair even shared a table at this year’s BRIT Awards, according to The Sun.
