During a recent appearance on “BBC Radio,” OASIS guitarist Noel Gallagher addressed the peculiar idea of performing with a hologram of his brother and former bandmate, Liam Gallagher.
“I did say that once, right, in the press, that I was gonna stage the concert with holograms, and I think Liam took it seriously… But yeah, Liam is a hologram anyway. I don’t know if people know that, he’s not actually real. But yeah, of course, I’d do it. If anything ever changes, trust me, he would be the first to let people know about it. “
When asked if he could be any songwriter, who’d he pick: “Let me see now… I still harbor ambitions of being Neil Young. I was going to start a Neil Young tribute back in the ’90s, I’d call it Noel Young.”
OASIS officially split up in 2009. Liam and the remaining members of OASIS decided to continue under the name BEADY EYE, releasing two studio albums until their breakup in 2014.
On 16 February 2010, Oasis won Best British Album of the Last 30 Years – for (What’s the Story) Morning Glory? — at the 2010 Brit Awards. Liam collected the award alone before presenting his speech, which thanked Paul “Bonehead” Arthurs, Paul McGuigan and Alan White but not Noel.
On 15 March 2010, Liam defended his actions at the awards ceremony, saying: “I’m sick of it all being about me and Noel, the last couple of months has pretty much been all about me and him so I thought it was only right to mention the other lads who played on the album and the best fans in the world, and “I thought [throwing the award] was a nice gesture to give this to the fans, obviously it was misinterpreted as per usual.”
