'B******s', says Andy Bell

Former Oasis guitarist and Beady Eye axeman Andy Bell has leapt to the defence of his bandmate Liam Gallagher, saying that his brother Noel lied about why Oasis split, and saying that he 'spins the press'.

The elder Gallagher claimed that Oasis pulled out of their 2009 Chelmsford V Festival performance because his little brother 'had a hangover', and that one of the main reasons in the band split was because the pair of them had a row over the advertising of Pretty Green in their tour programme. However Bell claims that none of that was true.

'B*ll*cks! He lied about a lot of things,' he exclaimed. 'The argument about Pretty Green was lies, what he said about V Festival and the fake laryngitis was lies - I don't know, maybe he's convinced that's the truth. I don't know what goes on in his head. I know him, so I'm not disappointed. That's what he's like. I know how he spins the press. He's used the press for years. Interviews and press are secondary for us, that's his life.

'That's just Noel being Noel. All that sh*t. There were three of us in that room, and I'm telling you it was nothing to do with Pretty Green. I'm not going to add more fuel to the fire. But I've ended up in a band with Liam, Gem, Chris, with the same management, road crew. But at the same time, I wish him all the best. I want him to be happy.'
