Liam: "I didn't like doing it"

Beady Eye singer opens up about the legal case against his brother

Beady Eye

Liam Gallagher says he is sad about suing his brother Noel over his claims he was too hung over to perform at the V Festival in 2009 but he had no choice:

" Listen, that had to happen, I don't take lightly to be called a fraud."

" I feel sad but I feel a lot sadder that there are people walking around thinking that I wouldn't get out of bed cos I had a few beers" he told 6 Music.

Noel has since apologised for saying Liam wasn't ill and the legal case has been dropped:

"I've called the dogs off a little bit but there still a few things that need to be cleared up, I didn't like doing it and it hurts a lot of people around it but it had to be done" the Beady Eye singer explained.

As for Beady Eye, they have just announced a number of UK tour dates in November.  

Liam says they will take Christmas off and dive straight into the next record:

"February or the end of January we will be in (the studio) doing our album.

"We've got enough material for another record and that is what we shall do, whether people like it or not."

Beady Eye haven't included any Oasis songs in their sets so far because they want to establish the band in it's own right but that doesn't mean they won't in the future:

"Maybe down the line, in the third album we might throw some in there just for the crack."

As for his brother Noel's solo album, which consists of a lot of old material written when Oasis were still together, what does Liam make of it?

"I have sung on half of them, it was a lot better when I was singing on them but I am sure people will like the soft approach."
