Fan snorted Gallagher's devil dandruff in cocaine mix-up

Rock star Liam Gallagher has told how a fan once snorted his dandruff -- after mistaking it for a chunk of cocaine.

The singer, once noted for his own use of the drug, said the man had spotted a flake from his scalp after he performed at Glastonbury, then popped it up his nostril.

Gallagher said he suffered from the skin condition psoriasis, which affects much of his body.

"I've got bad skin. I've got psoriasis all over my f****** body.

"Everywhere except for me face. And every now and again on me head," he said.

Gallagher said the drug mix-up happened after he had performed at the festival with former band Oasis.

"Everyone's backstage and this geezer comes up to me going 'I ain't seen Oasis for f****** years, f****** great' and I'm going 'yeah, alright'.

"And he goes to his mate. 'look Steve, he's even got cocaine in his hair'. And he pulls a bit of s*** out me hair."

Gallagher claimed the man then snorted it.
