Apparently Liam Gallagher and Andy 'the one out of Ride' Bell were at George Michael's recent show in London, but only managed 23 minutes before heading off to the bar.
George Michael has rushed to the internet to set matters straight - although, oddly, he seems to think this reflects on Liam rather than himself:
"Please don't hold it against Liam that he popped off to the bar at Saturday's show", Michael tweeted. "He's a lovely guy and has always been really friendly to me and very complimentary about my music."It's fair to say that Noel was the Chuckle Brother who ground the axe more smoothly with George:
Explaining that Gallagher left the show to get away from onlookers making him uncomfortable, Michael added: "He was getting a load hassle from people who spotted him so it's not surprising he went for for a bevvy :)"
"What's he trying to say?" said Gallagher.But even so, it's very sweet that Michael rushed to defend someone who turned tail and walked out of a gig, even revealing that a large swathe of the rest of the audience was so bored they'd become more interested in hassling Gallagher.
"He's now trying to make social comment, this is the guy who hid who he actually was from the public for 20 years, now, all of a sudden, he's got something to say about the way of the world. I find it laughable.
"That's even before you get to the song, which is diabolical."
