Beady Eye frontman Gallagher says Oasis is 'in his veins'
Beady Eye frontman Liam Gallagher, whose band play in front of those with Isle of Wight Festival tickets this year, has confessed he will always feel an affinity with his old band Oasis.
The rock giants split up in 2009 after an 18-year career following a falling out between Liam and brother Noel.
But, despite forming new band Beady Eye since the split, the younger Gallagher brother says he won't shy away from Oasis's legacy.
"I'll always be Oasis, it's in my veins. I'm never going to get away from it and I don't want to get away but I'm not doing it any more," he told the Evening Standard.
"You'd go mad if you had to explain yourself every time someone said, 'Are you from Oasis?' It's easier just to say, 'Yeah, that's me.' I like the same music now that I liked then. I've no reason to escape from it because I'm very proud of it."
Beady Eye are just one of the big names to be taking to the stage at this year's Isle of Wight Festival, which takes place between June 10th and 12th.
