Liam Gallagher knocks boozing on the head..and takes up jogging

If nothing else, Liam Gallagher's still good for a piss funny interview. Filled with effing and blinding and whimsical anecdotes about a past life spent snurkling the devils dust, poisening his liver and generally having a ball, the Manchester wrecker has waxed lyrical to The Times - and we've scavenged a few choice cutlets.

On his voice after years of wildman living? "Last week me voice was a bag o’shite, I had to have a word with meself. I want this to be a success, I want this to be great, I thought I’m going to have to tone it down a bit. Load of big fat lines, load of cigarettes, staying up late talking the same shit you talked the night before and the night before that, that’s not good for it. It’s not a big deal. I’ve got willpower.”

On his past life as a chav? “That’s exactly how I was, man, so I’ve got nothing bad to say about ’em. Whatever makes ’em happy. They look like dicks but fair play to them.”

On Coldplay and fans of Coldplay? "I don’t hate them. I don’t wish they had accidents. I think their fans are boring and ugly and they don’t look like they’re having a good time.”

On being a dad? I’m the b*******s at being a dad. I’m top. We have a lot of fun.”

On the paparazzi? “See me coming out of a pub with five million birds, charlied out me head, they’ve every right to take a picture. Get in my way when I’m going about me business, freak my kid out, then they get a slap.”

And, finally, on being Oasis? “We’ve no competition, none at all. I think all our records are great".

So there you go, the world according to Liam Gallagher. Modesty's still alive and kicking....and so is the F word. Check out Oasis's new single The Shock of the Lightning from new album Dig Out Your Soul (out Sept 29)

Gotya.
