Liam Gallagher says Oasis fans should stop taking sides between him and brother Noel

Liam Gallagher has said Oasis fans need to "grow up" and stop taking sides between his band Beady Eye and brother Noel's new venture High Flying Birds.

Oasis split in 2009 due to a row between the two brothers and Liam formed Beady Eye with bandmates Gem Archer and Andy Bell, while Noel started his own new venture High Flying Birds.

Liam said of the fans: "I read stuff. It's divided. innit? And it's like 'He's a d***' and 'He's not a d***'. The only d***s that are about are me and our kid, you know what I mean? Everyone should just wind their necks in.

"I'm not saying you've got to go and buy our record, you only buy it if you like it. But there's a lot of hatred to certain members of bands, whether it's me or Noel and I just think it's stupid.

"They don't have to act like d***s just 'cause me and our kid are, they should just grow up."

The 40-year-old singer said Beady Eye's new album BE was different to music he and Gem and Andy had made together before.

"I guess so but not intentionally, we're just doing what we're doing at that time. We didn't go in there to make this record, we just went in there to record the songs that we've written and it turned out like this. It's just good song-writing, good singing, good melodies, and that will never go away. And it shouldn't be pinned to any region or part of the country.

"It's just dryer, no effects on as much as previous records. It's just showing people what you've got."

And despite the rift with brother Noel, Liam said he won't rule out an Oasis reunion next year to mark 20 years since their debut album Definitely Maybe was released.

He said: "I'm not against nothing, never say never, but right now this is where we're at."
