Oasis vocalist Liam Gallagher said he’s no fan of Queen, telling Magnet Magazine:
“Do I like Queen? Uh, not really, no.
“I mean, I get Freddie Mercury has a great voice and all that, and obviously they’ve got some great songs. But I do find them a bit Queen-y.
“Listen, they’re a top band and obviously they’ve got great songs, but I dunno, man.
“Brian May’s guitar sound sounds like he’s got it clogged in his a*s. I respect him and all that, but I don’t know, man.”
Asked to single out American bands he’s a fan of, Liam replied:
“Guns N’ Roses. I do like, is it Creedence Clearwater Revival? I like them. He’s got a good voice, that John Fogerty. And obviously Hendrix and all that.
“I did like Nirvana, and I liked some of the tunes. Who else was out at the time? I wasn’t a big fan of Pearl Jam. All the grunge stuff was a bit different for me, I’ll be honest with you. There are a few bands.”
