Liam Gallagher has recently elaborated his statement how most rock stars were “useless”.
This statement came out as a response to Dave Grohl calling Gallagher “one of the last remaining rock stars” during an earlier interview.
During a recent appearance at Loudwire Nights, Liam explains further, saying:
“I mean, not all of them are [useless], but the majority of them are. The ones that think they’re rock stars are not, they… just live a very boring f*cking life, and I think rock ‘n’ roll deserves a little bit more than just making music, you know what I mean? You gotta get out there and get yourself — you just gotta live an exciting life. It’s like U2, they pass themselves as a rock ‘n’ roll band, but what the? Come on, man, I’ve never seen f*cking Bono, I mean I’ve never seen any of them do anything remotely rock ‘n’ roll.”
In fact, Liam Gallagher explains how having the “attitude” is almost as, if not more important than an artist’s music:
“Without a doubt, I think attitude, a lot of people will go, ‘Oh it’s all about music.’ But I disagree, I don’t think it’s all about music. Obviously you’ve got a certain degree of, your tunes have gotta be decent enough, but I think attitude goes a long way. But, people just think that rock ‘n’ roll kind of sounds a bit silly and a bit stupid, but it means a lot to me. I’d rather be that than f*cking some politically correct f*cking idiot.”
