Noel Gallagher, the former Oasis member, recently recalled meeting the former Sex Pistols frontman, John Lydon.
It’s not a secret that the Gallagher siblings are not on good terms, but to know that Johny Rotten won’t speak to Liam is something not everyone knows. Noel talked about it when he recently had an interview with Jo Whiley of BBC Radio 2. He shared:
“We had a funny – well, the night before we met Burt Bacharach, uh, we end up in this hotel with [John Lydon] and Rambo. And for some reason, [Lydon] didn’t take a shine to Liam. Liam was sat beside him, and I was sat beside Liam, and he kept leaning over to ask me questions about Liam but wouldn’t ask Liam. He’s gonna say to me, ‘Ask your singer if he likes wearing makeup.’
“As you can imagine, [Liam didn’t take it] very well. And he was being so sarcastic towards him and has remained sarcastic towards him to this very day. But he’s great, John. One of my absolute heroes. A lovely, lovely man, much misunderstood, of course. Sweetheart and a genius and one of the great British people of all times.”
The awkward experience with Lydon took place the night before the Gallagher brothers met Bacharach.
