Back in Britpop’s glory days in the Nineties, there were quite a few bands – Oasis, Blur, The Verve and Suede, to name four of the biggest – but there really was just one voice: Liam Gallagher. The Oasis frontman’s deadpan snarl defined the sound of British rock through the Nineties and his reputation for never backing down from a fight (especially with his brother and bandmate Noel Gallagher) was the stuff of legend.

Since Oasis’ breakup in 2009, Gallagher’s managed to stay at the top of the headlines with his subsequent band Beady Eye and his recent solo album As You Were, which released late last year and debuted at number one on the British charts. He’s also been huge on Twitter and is much loved for spouting off on anything that ticks him off (again, especially his brother Noel).

In a recent interview with NME, Gallagher recently revealed that the Foo Fighters have been asking him to collaborate, but he’s been a bit busy: “They keep texting me, man. They wanted to do one tune, but I dunno – I’ll do it one day, but I’m too busy doing this at the moment.”

He does reserve high praise though, for Grohl and his band, saying, “I do like them – I think Foo Fighters have got good tunes. I think Dave Grohl’s very talented, and so is the band.”

Given that the Foos just released a new album – Concrete and Gold – it might be a while before we get to hear that collaboration (if it happens), but there’s always the possibility of a one-off single!
