Liam Gallagher sets bar incredibly high

Of course, little Liam, now you're head of the gang, you're going to be very excited about things. But are you sure about this?

“I’m doing the next record you’ll hear for the next 50 years,” Gallagher said.

“It's not gonna be out until next year. We'll probably get a single out October or November, and there's no point in doing gigs if people haven't heard the music."
Actually, sweetheart, you might want to think about doing the gigs before people hear the music. Just to maximise the chances of people turning up.

Still, there you have it: after Beady Eye release their debut, there won't be a better record made until 2061.

I know we're all trying to stifle giggles, but it could happen. Say, for example, the record becomes available at 9am on Monday 5th May 2011, and five seconds later North Korea launch a full-out nuclear assault on Western nations, sending commerce and industry into a fifty year spiral of disaster which sees the next half-century entirely free of records being put out. Under those circumstances, Gallagher's prediction would be true. And nobody would be laughing.

On the other hand, everyone else's predictions - that the record will sound like a three-legged horse attempting to play through Band On The Run - are much sounder, I suspect.
