“I’D RATHER EAT my own sh*t than listen to them.”

If 2017 has taught us anything, it’s that Liam Gallagher isn’t a fan of U2 – especially now that his brother Noel is supporting them on their Joshua Tree Tour.

He doubled down on that criticism on Monday when he appeared on shock jock Howard Stern’s radio show in the US.

And he went all in on Bono, U2 and Noel

Making headlines around the world, Liam said of U2:

I dunno what planet they’re on, but they’re not on mine. They’re in a bubble.
I’m walking the streets keeping it real. The likes of U2 , when they call themselves a rock ’n’ roll band I find that highly insulting.
They play guitar music and they hit the drums and all that but they’re not a rock ’n’ roll band, they’re a band that use guitars.
They haven’t done anything rock ’n’ roll in their entire life.
I’m not saying you need to be snorting drugs off a dwarf’s a***.
But they need to do something. Have they ever broken a pencil? Have they ever stuck a rubber up their nose? They don’t seem to do f*** all, except for take big pay cheques.

As reported by The Mirror, he moved on to his brother Noel, calling him a “stalker potato” when he has his arm around Bono:

It’s nice to know while he’s out licking Bono’s a*** I’m sort of doing it for real.
I love our kid, but every time I see him he’s got his arm around some crazy celebrity. It’s like he’s stalking them.
Every time I see pictures of him, I just see a potato – a stalker potato when he has his arm around Bono.

This will do wonders for their relationship.

In typical Liam style, he spoke about being open to an Oasis reunion… followed by an explanation about why he always calls Noel a “potato”

Diplomacy, Gallagher-style.

Some of the lines stuck though, and like many Howard Stern interviews, the show’s laid back approach led to a candour you’d normally only see from Liam on Twitter

He even got a chance to play Wonderwall on air, saying that Noel probably “sang it like Dolly Parton” when he was on

An eventful interview.
