For the first time since their cashback, sorry, comeback, it's possible to feel sorry for The Stone Roses: They've got Liam Gallagher troubles:
A source close to both camps said: “It’s all gone a bit sour recently with Liam and The Roses. There was an ugly incident in Dubai when Liam said a few things that were totally out of order. It didn’t go down well at all.Just while that sinks in, what sort of person censors "pissed" by taking out three letters but "arsed" by just removing the "s"? What's the point of just taking the "s" out of there anywhere?
“Ian, John and Reni are all low-profile lads and don’t subscribe to aggro of any sort.
“They were also getting a little bit p***ed off with him ballooning on the side of the stage every time they played a gig. He had to be escorted off at one show and put behind the mixing desk because he was making such a scene.
“He was then slung out of there for spilling beer on the desk.
“He was generally being a bit of a nob — and The Roses can’t be ar*ed with the panto-mime.”
The idea of Ian, John and Reni "not subscribing to aggro of any sort" is an interesting one. Not sure how far that flight attendant who was told she was going to have her hands chopped off, or Paul Birch, for that matter.
Still, you've got to feel sorry for the band. Liam's already killed off one Manchester heritage cash-cow; surely he won't bring the Roses down as well?
