Liam Gallagher Says U2 And Most Other Rock Stars Are “Boring”


Liam Gallagher told Loudwire Nights host Toni Gonzalez that he thinks most rock stars are “useless” and lead notably boring lives. 

In the interview Gallagher explained “I mean, not all of them are [useless], but the majority of them are. The ones that think they’re rock stars are not, they… just live a very boring fucking life, and I think rock ‘n’ roll deserves a little bit more than just making music, you know what I mean? You gotta get out there and get yourself — you just gotta live an exciting life. It’s like U2, they pass themselves as a rock ‘n’ roll band, but what the? Come on, man, I’ve never seen fucking Bono, I mean I’ve never seen any of them do anything remotely rock ‘n’ roll”.

Gallagher continued to drag U2, saying that he believes they should have gotten “into a bit more naughty stuff” before referring to themselves as a rock ’n’ roll band. He elaborated, saying that being a rock star has a lot to do with attitude. 

“Without a doubt, I think attitude, a lot of people will go, ‘Oh it’s all about music.’ But I disagree, I don’t think it’s all about music. Obviously you’ve got a certain degree of, your tunes have gotta be decent enough, but I think attitude goes a long way,” he continued. “But, people just think that rock ‘n’ roll kind of sounds a bit silly and a bit stupid, but it means a lot to me. I’d rather be that than fucking some politically correct fucking idiot.”
