Liam walks off in anger
09:30 15 June 2005
Rock'n'roll wildman Liam Gallagher left thousands of fans disappointed by storming off stage during a show in Italy.
The Oasis frontman left halfway through singing 'Champagne Supernova' at the Heineken Festival in Imola.
His brother Noel led the rest of the band continued for three more songs. But both Noel and the Italian fans were left fuming by Liam's antics.
One fan said: "Liam really let everyone down. He looked and sounded drunk. He was shouting more than singing."
And Noel has confessed that the stormy relationship between the brothers has finally hit rock bottom, Liam's walk-out coming only a week after the two had an onstage slanging match in Belgium.
Noel is quoted by The Sun newspaper as saying : "I don't talk to Liam any more. I can't. It always ends in a fight. He screams like some juvenile to get attention. It's so sad. He's so defiant all the time. Lately, it's been like he's lost interest.
"I mean, he's wearing shorts on stage. Who the hell wears shorts on stage? It's a scandal.
"He's also got this ridiculous hat. I can't even tell you how foolish it looks. But the shorts take the prize. Did The Beatles or the Sex Pistols ever wear shorts? No, they didn't.
"Liam is a prima donna. He doesn't even want to rehearse, he doesn't show for soundchecks."
