Liam Gallagher has responded to claims made by Robbie Williams that Oasis were “bullies”.
The former Take That singer made these comments during a recent interview with Zane Lowe, regarding his latest album ‘XXV’.
Williams’ relationship with Oasis frontman Liam Gallagher also cropped up.
“Ultimately, I’m a huge fan of Oasis and [always] was”, Williams said.
“I was there and I was part of it, and it was f****** unbelievable: incredible hedonism, reckless abandon and rock’n’roll, and ‘let’s turn it to 11, 12 and let’s see where this goes’. It’s part of that competitive nature of me, too”.
It was at this point where Williams branded Gallagher’s band “gigantic bullies”.
“Also they were gigantic bullies too, to the whole industry, everybody in it – and I didn’t like that”, Williams added. “A lot of that still remains inside me. They’re probably different people now but there’s a lot of me that’s like, ‘They’re fucking bullies, them. I don’t like bullies’”.
However, Williams also insisted that he now feels that Gallagher “looks as though he’s changed”. He also described Liam Gallagher’s personality as “vital”.
“He’s doing fine. And he’s rocking it,” Williams added.
“The great thing about being a fan of Oasis is when Liam comes out with a great album, I can be a fan. The great thing about being resentful towards them is when they don’t, I’m happy. I win on both sides”.
Gallagher Apologises If Oasis Went “a little too far”
In response to this, Liam Gallagher took to Twitter to deny Williams’ allegations of bullying. However, he did apologise if he “ever hurt anyone’s feelings”.
“I agree with him on the vital ting not on the bully thing,” he tweeted. “I’ve never bullied anyone in my life I’m a massive piss taker for sure and probably gone a little too far sometimes, but if I’ve ever hurt anyone’s feelings I apologise”.
