Poor Gordon tries this morning to scrape some sort of story out of the NME Awards, and is reduced to trying to plump up someone sniggering at a hat:
LIAM GALLAGHER has picked a few unwise scraps over the years – one in Germany left him without any front teeth.Really?
And after the NME gongs at London’s Troxy on Wednesday night he bit off more than he could chew yet again with IDRIS ELBA.
An onlooker said: “Liam was in full rock’n’roll swagger mode.What did he do?
“He bowled up to the party after midnight and made his presence felt pretty quickly.
“Then he had a few words with Idris, poking fun at his bobble hat among other things. Idris looked like he was going to flatten him — they were on completely different wavelengths.Or perhaps he just thought Gallagher was a bit of a knob. You're trying to have a night out, and all of a sudden the 1990s turn up, drunk and shouting.
Still... here's a flashpoint. Tell us, onlooker, what happened next?
They were toe-to-toe at one point.Um... yeah. It's a noisy club. If you're going to have a go at someone's hat, you'd have to be close enough for them to hear you.
Neither of them backed down.No quarter given, none sought. It's all kikcing off. Right?
Idris was in a good mood, so left it, which was probably for the best. Liam left soon after.So... this story is 'Liam made a snarky comment about a hat'.
Hardly Keith Moon, is it?
