There are two worlds in the UK, the Paul McCartney world where everyone is nice and should get along with everyone, and the Gallagher brothers world, a bit more cynical! I don’t know if you believe in these rumors of Oasis reunion, but Macca is a big supporter, during a Q&A with Japanese fans he said the two brothers should make peace and record something together:
‘My advice to them? Just get together and make some good music. But they have got to want to do it. I think a lot of people would like them to do that. They are pretty cool guys.’
Cool guys? Is he aware of all the terrible (and very hilarious) comments that have made about everybody over the years? They are funny guys but they can be pitiless!
‘I don’t know if they will ever make up,’ continued McCartney. ‘It would be good because I think everyone likes brothers to like each other — and make up. It’s a pity because they are very good together. Like many brothers, they are crazy. But it would be nice if they got together.”
Of course it would be good to live in a world where everyone loves everyone, but oh my god the things they have said of each other!
Noel: ‘Liam is rude, arrogant, intimidating and lazy. He’s the angriest man you’ll ever meet. He’s like a man with a fork in a world of soup!’
And the always gracious Liam:’ I don’t think there is a difference between me and Noel. He’s a cunt, I’m a cunt. Don’t let him spin you; he’s a cunt, I tell you. I’m the one who gets made out to be the cunt; but he makes me the cunt. He pushes me to that cunt zone.”
And these are just random samples of their never-ending feud… Plus they don’t think much of Macca’s recent collaboration with Kanye West. In an interview, Noel said he couldn’t care and didn’t listen to it, and Liam has described the rapper as ‘utter shit’ or a ‘fucking idiot’! Not a good sign but on the other hand they have insulted each musician on the planet: ‘Chris Martin looks like a geography teacher’, Jack White ‘looks like Zorro on doughnuts’, Kylie Minogue is ‘a demonic little idiot’, Damon Albarn is ‘such a condescending cock’, One Direction are ‘fucking idiots’, The Arctic Monkeys are ‘invisible’, Radiohead are ‘absolute wankers’ or ‘a bunch of moaning children’, Kaiser Chiefs ‘don’t mean anything to anybody apart for their fucking ugly girlfriends’, Adele’s music is ‘for fucking grannies’, Arcade Fire are arrogant people who ‘think that you’ve got an hour and a half to listen to a fucking record’, and my favorite, Mumford and Sons, they ‘look like fucking Amish people.’ I could go on and on, these two brothers are a national treasure for mean quotes about famous people!
So here we are with two worlds apart, the mean Gallagher brothers’ world who may witness a reunion if there is enough money to be made, and the rosy world of Macca who sibling rivalry should not exist,… as if the Beatles had never broken up and he and Lennon never had a fight!
