Liam Gallagher, just about the best thing that happened to British rock in the 1990s, fashion designer and president of The International 'Sideburns Are Still Fookin Cool Innit?' Movement :
This story about Liam's love for Spinal Tap, from his brother Noel, is classic :
Liam thought Spinal Tap were real people.How much more Tap can you be? The answer is none, none more Tap.
We went to see them play in Carnegie Hall. Before they played, they came on as three folk singers from the film A Mighty Wind. We were laughing and he said, 'This is shit'.
We said: 'No, those three are in Spinal Tap. You do know they are American actors?'
'They're not even a real band?'
'They're not even English! One of them is married to Jamie Lee Curtis.'
'I'm not fuckin' 'avin that,' he says, and walks off right up the middle of Carnegie Hall.
He's never watched Spinal Tap since.
