Beady (sober) Eye

Cast your mind back to the halcyon days of Britpop. Ah, that's better isn't it? Every day was warm and sunny, men pretended to be Mancunian, ladies were ladettes, and Liam Gallagher was pictured everywhere with a can of Special Brew welded to his hand. In fact, Liam was probably drunk for a decade. But no more, as he's quit the dreaded booze, and now prefers fishing and collecting vintage cheese. Probably...

Liam told The Sun, 'If I have a drink, I'll be on the Christmas special. I haven't had a drink since New Year's Eve. I'm having a bit of a break. I went 20 years drinking and messing about. It's rubbish. At Knebworth I thought we were doing one night and we were doing two. I got that mashed on the first I woke up to a knock on the door and thought I was at home. I forgot all about it. But I had to go and do it again. That was heavy.'

Despite quitting the booze, Liam still hasn't made his peace with brother Noel, saying, 'I wouldn't have gone anyway. I was busy. If I had I'd have had a drink and it would have gone pear-shaped. It would've been like Dynasty.'
