The Big Hurt: Liam alone

By DAVID THORPE  |  November 9, 2009

Liam’s recently been connected to Freebass, the new bass-only combo formed by Peter Hook of New Order, Mani of the Stone Roses, and Andy Rourke of the Smiths. Although they’ve played and recorded with a number of famous friends on vocals — Bobby Gillespie of Primal Scream, Billy Corgan, Tim Burgess of the Charlatans, Ian Brown of the Stone Roses and, yes, Liam Gallagher — they recently announced that their full-time vocalist will be Gary Briggs, former frontman of failed falsetto wuss-rockers Haven. Goodbye, Freebass. You were a fascinatingly terrible idea while you lasted.

So, then, it would seem Liam’s got a snowball’s chance in Hell of putting out anything decent. Then again, he beat similar odds with Oasis, right?
