Liam Gallagher confirms supergroup collaboration with Stone Roses legend

Liam Gallagher has finally revealed that he and John Squire of The Stone Roses are in talks to form a supergroup.

Speculation has been rife about the potential of the two joining forces since Liam hinted at the possibility earlier this year, with fans of both Manchester rockers hoping for confirmation.

During his sold-out performances at Knebworth, Liam brought the guitarist on stage to perform Oasis' 1995 hit track Champagne Supernova.

Welcoming John onto the stage, the former Oasis star exclaimed: "A big f**king round of applause for the coolest man on the planet, the one and only John f**king Squire."

At the time, Liam shared a tweet with his followers reading: "super group incoming LG JS," which sent fans into a frenzy.

Now, he's confirmed the news, teasing that the pair are working on music together during an interview with Matt Wilkinson on Apple Music 1.

When asked for an update, Burnage-born Liam responded: "Yeah, serious, man, but we've got things to do first, and he's got things to clear up and that.

"But yeah, I'm definitely going to do summat at some point."

He went on to discuss whether the pair have had the conversations, explaining: "Maybe, yeah, probably did that at Knebworth and that, I think, if I can remember anything about it.

"But, no, there's talk about summat, maybe but no rush, he's my man, I love him, so if he's got any tunes that need singing, I'm the boy, mate."

Despite their deep love for one another, Liam recently revealed he was "obsessed" with the Stone Roses who just happened to be the first gig he went to at Manchester's International 2.

He explained that his brother Noel Gallagher loved The Smiths but they were "too early" for him as well as being "too student-y".

Liam explained: "But the Roses were a bit more laddy – not as laddy as us, but it felt a bit more right."

The hitmaker is currently touring across the globe, having performed the UK leg of his headline tour but admits he's got one pre-stage ritual.

He went on to explain that he has half a bottle of brandy before each show, adding: "I have kind of backed it off now but the last year I've been walloping the brandy with honey and hot water and going on a little bit.

"I've been getting a bit battered on stage recently, not battered as much but just… I wouldn't say nerves but I think as you get older, you do get a little bit more… you're not as cocksure."
