Gallagher in race against the clock
Liam Gallagher has told how he is locked in a battle with his alarm clock - in a bid to wake up before it rings.
The singer, about to relaunch his career with new band Beady Eye, sees it as a challenge to wake up ahead of the alarm.
In an interview with BBC 6 Music, he said: "I'm getting up earlier and earlier now man. I try and beat the alarm clock."
He went on: "The alarm goes off at six and I try to get up at 5.59 just to do its head in."
The former Oasis frontman pointed out that no matter how many times fans ask, he will not be playing any of his old hits when he plays live with Beady Eye.
In an interview with presenter Steve Lamacq, to broadcast on Monday from 4pm, he said: "Let 'em shout. I've got a microphone, I'll be louder.
"I'll just go 'NO' really loud - it's not happening, get over it.
"I just think it'd be like splitting up with your Mrs and then meeting the new Mrs and having the ex round for tea - it'd be a bit too Simon Cowell, you know what I mean?"
Beady Eye release their debut album Different Gear, Still Speeding on February 28 and make their live debut next month.
