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.”
