It seems that Liam Gallagher well and truly is mellowing with age, as the Oasis man's recent comments about Ed Sheeran have proven.
There was once a time that Gallagher would have ripped an artist like Sheeran to pieces, but he spoken very complimentarily of him in a recent interview - not only saying that he wasn't as good a writer as Sheeran, put placing him in the same category as a musical legend.
He told Zane Lowe on his Beats 1 show: "He is talented. I don’t know much about him but he is talented."
He also mentioned how he did not see himself as the same kind of musician (no kidding) as Sheeran, saying: “I don’t see myself as a writer, I see myself as a singer first. I’m still learning. When I wake up in the morning and look in the mirror I just see a rock n roll singer with a dash of punk, and loads of charm. I don’t see myself as an Ed Sheeran or a Bob Dylan.”
Gallagher worked with Snow Patrol's Jonny McDaid - who has also co-written for Sheeran - on his forthcoming debut album. Next stop, collaboration?
