Former Oasis singer Liam Gallagher discussed Queen in a new Magnet Magazine interview with Foo Fighters drummer Taylor Hawkins.
Gallagher: Do I like Queen? Uh, not really, no. I mean, I get Freddie Mercury has a great voice and all that, and obviously they’ve got some great songs. But I do find them a bit Queen-y. [Hawkins laughs] Listen, they’re a top band and obviously they’ve got great songs, but I dunno, man. Brian May’s guitar sound sounds like he’s got it clogged in his ass.
Hawkins: Poor Brian. I love Brian.
Gallagher: I respect him and all that, but I don’t know, man.
Hawkins: OK, that’s funny. That’s a good one. I like that. OK, next question. What about American bands? What American bands from the ’70s, ’80s, ’90s?
Gallagher: Guns N’ Roses. I do like, is it Creedence Clearwater Revival? I like them. He’s got a good voice, that John Fogerty.
Hawkins: Oh fuck, dude, we played with him. He’s fucking loud—he’s like you. He’s just fucking loud.
Gallagher: He’s got a good voice. And obviously Hendrix and all that.
