All right, it looks like there’s more news about the Gallagher brothers. But, just so you don’t think Noel’s the only Gallagher brother prone to making an ass of himself in public, here’s something about Liam: He was thrown out of the same pub twice last week for being too drunk.

He was turned away from The Queens in Crouch End, London, on March 10 (which is apparently Mother’s day in the UK; given that, on my side of the pond, it’s two months away, it comes as a surprise to me.) A manager from the pub told The Sun: “We just said we couldn’t serve him because he was too drunk. He was treated like any normal customer. It doesn’t matter who you are — if we think you are too drunk we will not serve you.”

But that’s not all; the pub’s own Twitter feed said: “We’ve had to kick Liam Gallagher out twice today. He asked whether it was because he was a rock star. We said no, just a drunken twit.” Alas, the comments are no longer on the Twitter feed; it was deleted shortly afterward.

Gallagher was with his former bandmate Paul “Bonehead” Arthurs. Remarkably, a similar incident happened earlier in the week; quoth the manager: “He was fine about it and left without a fuss. He’d been refused a drink earlier in the week, I think it was Wednesday evening. He was slurring his words.”

The previous night, Liam Gallagher went to London night club This Feeling, which saw the premiere of a new Beady Eye song, which has yet to be titled or leaked. Gallagher allowed Beady Eye bandmate and DJ Andy Bell. Quoth Tom Rowlett of the band Dexters: “I was pretty fucked so memory a bit hazy, but it had a big brass section and Liam’s vocals sounded massive, proper in-your-face psychedelic rock’n’roll. Sounding fuckin’ massive, man, the whole place went off when it came on! Liam was amazing. They always say don’t meet your heroes but he was brilliant – he pulled us into his VIP area, we had a few beers with him, he was buzzing off the new LP and so are we now!”

But, to get back to their epic feud, organisers of the second Gallagher Global Gathering in Ireland, have invited both Gallagher brothers to attend. A spokesman told The Scotsman: “We are extending a special invitation to Noel and Liam Gallagher. We hope they will be interested because of the songwriting and musical aspects but, also because it’s a Gallagher family gathering.”

The event takes place between September 6-15 at Gortahork in west Donegal,  homeland of the Gallagher clan. Its aim is to bring the Gallagher diaspora together into its ancestral lands. A previous gathering six years ago, had 14,088 Gallaghers congregating in Letterkenny, breaking a record for the most people with one surname in one place. Hopefully, this’ll inspire the two to at least come, and, if not, at least inspire some Gallaghers to come and break their own record.
