We’re better than God – Oasis
There’s just no shutting up the Gallaghers. Liam Gallagher says being in Oasis is better than being God, reports Bang Showbiz. Liam - whose idol John Lennon sparked outrage in the US in 1966 when he declared The Beatles were "more popular than Jesus" - said: "If I wasn't a musician I don't know, I'd be God, maybe? That would be a good job. That's the next highest honour. Being in Oasis, then being f***ing God! Top!" On the other hand, the singer admits he is interested in religion. Liam - who was raised a Catholic - revealed: "I'm intrigued by religion but I don't practise. What interests me is people's need for guidance. I'm not interested, I guide myself." It is not the first Liam or his brother Noel Gallagher have boasted to be more important than God. Liam previously echoed Lennon's claim insisting his band were "bigger than Jesus" and would be "as big as The Beatles, if not bigger" in the group's 90s heyday. Those days are now looking hard to get back, and with a new album "Dig Out Your Soul" due in October, outrageous and antagonistic remarks to the press appears to be the only way anyone will even remember this band still exists.
