Ex-Oasis singer Liam Gallagher discussed forgetting the lyrics to The Beatles classic “Come Together” when he performed it with Foo Fighters and Joe Perry recently in a new Vulture interview.
I thought we were doing “I Am the Walrus,” but I got there and it was “Come Together,” so I was going, “Who? What? Why?” And then, yeah, I’d had a lot to drink as well. I’m not one for getting up onstage and doing songs unless I’ve had a real rehearsal. Especially now with social media, since these things hang around for a bit. So I thought, You know what? Fuck this. And I jumped in the crowd. So yeah, I forgot the words. But I can barely fucking remember my words let alone fucking “I Am the Walrus” mashed with “Come Together.”
He later discussed his brother Noel:
He works hard at being beige, so I wouldn’t want to come and take his crown at that. Noel’s a very clever guy, and he certainly knows how to work the press, whereas I don’t give a fuck, and I just do what I do, and if you write about it, you write about it. I’m here to sing songs as best as I can, and have as much fun as I can, and do as little as possible in life, because that’s my motto. Know what I mean?
