Oasis are arguably one of the best bands in modern British rock and roll. Their third album ‘Be Here Now’ was the fastest-selling in UK music history, with more than eight million copies eventually purchased. The ‘Wonderwall’ crooners broke records for a second time, with their two performances at Knebworth, in Hertfordshire. They became the most in demand shows to date when more than 2.5 million people tried to obtain tickets. At midnight (April 30) a previously unheard song that was believed to have been “lost forever” was released by former guitarist Noel Gallagher. The forgotten track ‘Don’t Stop…’ was discovered among “hundreds of faceless unmarked CDs” that he was rummaging through during the coronavirus lockdown. The revelation has renewed age-old rumours that the Gallagher brothers could reunite, following their official split in 2009. The release has spurred a new wave of interest into the bands life of ‘sex, drugs and rock and roll’. Several of these astonishing antics were shared by the band’s ex-lead singer Liam Gallagher, who claimed to have been abandoned by numerous celebrities.
Liam Gallagher recounted numerous tales from his thrilling life as a rockstar in the 2017 Noisey series ‘The British Masters’.
The drunken dalliances with celebrities included waking up in bed with BBC’s ‘The Trip’ star Steve Coogan, being threatened by Argentinian footballer Diego Maradona and US Tennis star John McEnroe revealing a hidden talent to the star.
Despite their wild antics, the Mancunian revealed no long-lasting friendships emerged with any of the stars.
He concluded: “That’s it with all these f***ing people, I come across them once man.”
Liam recalled his encounter with Steve Coogan, whose show ‘The Trip’, also starring Rob Brydon, was released for a fourth season in March.
He admitted to “f***ing love Coogan” and said that he had “partied with him once” at a wedding, shortly after Oasis had released ‘Wonderwall’ in 1995.
The frontman was sitting at a “dungeon” type bar when fans approached and begged him to sing the British anthem – which reached number two in the UK singles charts.
Liam recalled: “I was going, ‘I ain’t singing none of that s***,’ [Steve’s] going ‘Leave him alone, I’ll f***ing sing a song’ and I don’t think they really knew who he was.”
The ‘Alan Partridge’ star went onstage and belted out “It’s Not Unusual” by Tom Jones, which Liam described as “f***ing mega”.
He added: “I’m at the back laughing, rolling around, and they’re all going (in an Irish accent), ‘I don’t know what you’re laughing at he’s better at singing than you.’”
The pair continued to drink “a load of Guinness” before they “definitely crashed out” in Liam’s hotel room – only for Liam to receive a shock the next morning.

Liam woke up to see “this lump in the bed” and thought “Oh god, who’s this?” before receiving a “little tap on the f***ing back”.
Comedian Steve, who was “fully clothed”, leaped up and yelled “AHAAA!” – the popular catchphrase of character ‘Alan Partridge’.
The star added: “I haven’t seen him since. That was it. Seriously I haven’t f***ing seen him since.”
The nasal-voiced singer also recalled blagging his way into a party for Diego Maradona, who led Argentina to win the 1986 FIFA World Cup final against Germany.
After Liam realised the sports star had gone up to a private room “with a load of f***ing mad heads and a load of f***ing women of the night”, he asked an interpreter on the door if the Oasis lads could join them.
Only Liam and Noel were let in and after they “steamed up” the stairs, they were astonished to discover “f***ing loads of activity going on”.

Liam recalled: “Maradona’s in the middle of the room f***ing doing football tricks with a bottle top. His eyes were f***ing like that (stretches his arms out wide) and ours weren’t far off.”
Later in the night, he reported feeling uncomfortable in the environment as it was “a bit moody” and decided to leave only to allegedly be collared by one of Maradona’s companions.
Liam said: “He’s f***ing sweating his b******s off, and we turned around and ask, ‘What did he just say?’”
He claimed another person responded: “‘He’s told me to tell yous(sic), if yous(sic) leave with any of his b****es, he’ll have you shot’. Like that alright.”
The singer also claimed to have partied with John McEnroe, who was described as a “superbrat” by the media after challenging an umpire’s call during Wimbledon in 1981.
The Gallagher brothers had just finished a performance in New York, when the tennis star allegedly approached them with an offer.
Liam said: “He’s gone, ‘F***ing great guys man, do you want a f***ing joint?’ We’re going, ‘F***ing yes John McEnroe! You f***ing maniac!’”
During their time together, the musicians beckoned McEnroe to play a song he had written to parody his infamous outburst.
He recalled not being able to believe the scenes that were unfolding at the time and that there was “f***ing smoke everywhere”.
Liam mimed playing the guitar, as he recounted that McEnroe was singing: “‘You cannot be serious!’ and we’re going, ‘It’s f***ing happening!’
“He goes, ‘Was it in or was it out?’ and that was it, he was going, ‘What do you reckon?’ and we’re like, ‘F***ing yes man!’”
Signing off his series of showbiz anecdotes, the singer appeared lamentful as he revealed that none of the celebrities have kept in contact and that they all appeared to be one-off encounters.
