Gallagher's legal threat
13:30 26 August 2005
Noel Gallagher has jokingly threatened to sue Foo Fighters if they cover Oasis's single 'Lyla' at this weekend's Reading and Leeds festivals.
The US rockers are rumoured to be performing a their own version of the hit record at this weekend's festivals - after debuting it on Jo Whiley's BBC Radio One show earlier this week.
However, Noel is not amused by claims the band, fronted by ex-Nirvana drummer Dave Grohl, are planning to change some of the lyrics and has issued a gentle warning.
He told the station: "They'll be hearing from my lawyers if they change any lyrics."
The guitarist has heard the Foo Fighters version of 'Lyla' and admits he finds it bizarre.
He added: "I've heard it. It sounds like Motorhead doing Green Day on acid."
