Liam Gallagher has recalled partying with Gazza when he was supposed to be resting and how he got payback on him. LG has told brilliant stories of his experiences with Paul Gascoigne who he described as a ‘phenomenon.’ He said during an interview with Copa 90, “met him when I’d lost my voice and we were doing Loch Lomond and he’d signed for Rangers. Someone had said ‘you can’t be staying in Glasgow as you have to go and chill out to get your voice back for these big gigs.
So went up to this nice hotel in the countryside and I’m getting out the car with the security, it’s 9pm and I’m gonna get in and have a drink of honey and lemon and all that boring stuff that goes with the job. I’ll get me head down, get up and it’ll be all alright. As I’m getting out the car I’m greeted by Jimmy Five-Bellies, so I’m like “Ah, for fuck’s sake!’ He’s saying they’d heard I was here, but I couldn’t even speak as my voice was properly gone. I was trying to tell him (I’m going upstairs), but he was like ‘Gazza’s waiting for you in the bar.’ I have to walk past the bar to get to the lift and he’s knocking back these tequila shots. I’ve never seen anyone like proper just going for it. He said ‘You having a fucking drink then, you Manc bastard? I get into a session with him then, don’t I?
It was fine actually, as the booze sort of woke my voice up and the gig was alright I think. But I was telling him ‘I shouldn’t be doing this, man.’ and he was like ‘come on, you’re meant to be a fucking rock star!'” So how did Liam get revenge? He explains, “The famous one was when we done the fire extinguisher in Groucho’s. He was going ‘go on have you got your fucking roll with it have ya?’ and I was like ‘shut up you Geordie fucker.’
I was pissed and he was pissed. I think he’s got that OCD as he kept cleaning up every time I put a beer down and there was a wet patch and I thought ‘I’m gonna fucking have him in a bit. I weren’t even meant to be in there as I was banned and I’d snuck in on our kid’s pass. As I’m going out the door I just pulled the fire extinguisher and I know I’m going to spray the whole gaff with the foam and the last words that come out of his mouth was ‘Nooo!'”
