Liam Gallagher sober after 20 years of "messing about"

Liam Gallagher has decided to leave alcohol well alone after 20 years of "messing about". 

The Beady Eye frontman sat down with Alan Carr on his Channel 4 show, Chatty Man, and spoke exclusively about his private life, drinking habits and why he didn't attend brother Noel's recent wedding:

"If I have a drink, I'll be on the Christmas special, I haven't had a drink since New Year's Eve. I'm having a bit of a break. I went 20 years drinking and messing about. It's rubbish."

He recalled a particularly bad episode, where he got so "mashed" he actually forgot about the gig he was meant to perform at:

"At Knebworth (in 1996) I thought we were doing one night and we were doing two. I got that mashed on the first I woke up to a knock on the door and thought I was at home. I forgot all about it. But I had to go and do it again. That was heavy."

Referring to Noel's wedding to Sara McDonald and why he didn't show up, Liam added:

"I wouldn't have gone anyway, I was busy. If I had I'd have had a drink and it would have gone pear-shaped. It would've been like Dynasty."

The full interview is scheduled to air tonight, July 1, at 10pm on Channel 4 in the UK. Listen to a recent radio interview with the star here:
