Liam Gallagher Slaps Fellow Stars for Moaning at Illegal Downloads

Liam Gallagher

Slamming stars who back bill against illegal downloaders, the Oasis' former frontman gushes, 'I hate all these big, silly rock stars who moan - at least they're f**king downloading your music.'

Former Oasis' frontman Liam Gallagher is urging his fellow musicians to stop complaining about illegal internet downloads because online file-sharing is a good way to introduce music to fans. Politicians in the U.K. passed a controversial bill this week which introduces far-reaching measures to stop the public taking copyrighted material from the web for free.

Many musicians have spoken out in favor of the crackdown, including Lily Allen, Elton John and Annie Lennox, but Gallagher is adamant stars should stop campaigning against illegal downloaders because they actually help popularize music.

He tells Britain's ShortList magazine, "Downloading's the same as what I used to do - I used to tape the charts of the songs I liked (from the radio). I don't mind it. I hate all these big, silly rock stars who moan - at least they're f**king downloading your music, you c**t, and paying attention, know what I mean? You should f**king appreciate that - what are you moaning about? You've got f**king five big houses, so shut up."

    Liam has made is fortune by people buying his music... a whole new world out there now for new indie artists... you can only get so far on free promotional music to get you known out there... but if people dont buy your music - you are screwed... and what ab insult to compare a body of artistic work to a TShirt sale to compensate for stealing music!

    an idiot is what he is - all fine for millionaires to talk about giving music away, they've already made thier millions. It's the indies that are losing out. Making music is expensive, even if you record at home - those computers and microphones ain't cheap. As for other posters here, I hope your not just freeloaders complaining about how other peoples work should be free...

    Is a war. If they can do it, punish people for it or stop file sharing music, we`ll remember the names of those "artists". On the other side, it will backfire them, because bands and solo artists are helping downloads from portals and web sites, people will download them, have them share their lives and music with us in our homes and cars, they will be heard and visited in their concerts and buyed in their T-Shirt stores if they will. You Elton, Lennox, Allen, you will be finished, forcing up entries on tv paying gross sums of money "to be heard". We will win this war. indies will win this war.Let everybody hear this!
