AceShowbiz - Liam Gallagher has branded Oasis better than The Beatles in a Twitter spat with retired footballer Jamie Carragher. After his team Man City beat Aston Villa to claim their sixth Premier League title at the Etihad Stadium on Sunday, May 22, the Britpop group's former frontman got into a war of words with the Sky Sports pundit and former Liverpool defender,
Things quickly escalated when the outspoken rocker and avid City supporter called Carragher a "b*** end." He then proceeded to brand Oasis "s****" compared to the Liverpool legends. Scouser Carragher responded, "I’m saying you'll never win the Champions league & Oasis are s**** compared to the Beatles. That work?? (sic)"
Liam then hit back. Despite being a massive Beatles fan himself and naming his son Lennon after the 'Let It Be' group's late frontman John Lennon, the 49-year-old musician believes his group are the better band because they played a sold-out Knebworth twice in 1996.
The "Wonderwall" singer responded, "Eh carra you got s*** banter for a scouser f****** hell la you been hanging out with Neville too long oasis p*** all over the Beatles how many times did they do knebworth (sic)." Both Liam and his estranged brother and former bandmate Noel Gallagher have publicly stated what a huge influence The Fab Four were on their own music.
However, Noel recently insisted the constant comparisons were unjustified because The Beatles, which were also comprised of Sir Paul McCartney, Sir Ringo Starr and the late George Harrison, were so much better than Oasis. "When Oasis started, we were so big we were compared to them size-wise and musically, embarrassingly, compared to them as well," he said. "(It's embarrassing) because we weren't as good as them."
