Liam: I'm not in it for the money

Liam Gallagher has revealed he has to keep making music - or he'd go mad.
The singer, who parted ways with brother Noel and created new band Beady Eye with his fellow ex-Oasis bandmates, wouldn't be content just resting on his laurels.
"People think when you've got money it just stays in a big pile forever, but you spend it, don't you? You've got to work and keep busy, or you'll go mad," he said.
"And I'm not doing this because of money, it's because I love it, and I don't have a choice. I didn't think 'I'd like to join a band' and then join one - it happened to me."
Beady Eye are fresh from a series of sold-out gigs across the UK while their debut record, Different Gear, Still Speeding, entered the chart at number three.
Liam said he was delighted with the response the band had received.
"Not getting all cosmic, but there's something bigger up there telling us all to get out and do something. People want to hear us play music. We're part of a much bigger picture."
