“I’ve given my daughter a list of people to insult at Ed Sheeran’s Wembley gig”.
In an interview with NME, Gallagher explained how the debacle between himself and Ed Sheeran came about.
After being asked if he’ll accept Sheeran’s offer of tickets and attend the 23-year-old’s concert at Wembley, Gallagher replied: “No no, they’re for my daughter”.
“She’ll be going and drinking his champagne and possibly playing Top Trumps with James Blunt in the dressing room afterwards. I’ve given her a list of people to insult while she’s there.”
Gallagher continued by saying that he would be playing “to a far lesser crowd that night in a festival in Azerbaijan somewhere for half the fee and twice the stress”.
Adding: “No doubt I’ll be reading about it in some newspaper and feeling slightly less legendary than I did that morning”.
The frontman continued to speak openly about his views on the the current state of music.
“Sometimes when I have this debate, when I say I’m not into pop music, I think to myself, Well, I am into pop music. We’re all into pop music. We were brought up on everything from Elvis to the Sex Pistols to Nirvana and The Smiths, which were all pop music”.
“It’s just that now the charts for the first time in history are completely dominated by major label acts who have teams of songwriters and employ major label thinking, and it all sounds the same”, he continued.
