During a recent appearance on the U.K.’s Absolute Radio, Noel Gallagher recalled a conversation he had with Rolling Stones legend Keith Richards one New Year’s Eve in the Bahamas when they discussed who had worse bandmates.
Noel told “Hometime” presenters Andy Bush and Richie Firth that Keith asked him whether Mick Jagger was a “bigger cunt” than Liam Gallagher.
“I go up to the bar and there’s Keith Richards, looking exactly as you would imagine, scarf and a hat,” he said. “He suddenly turns around and says, ‘Ah, you’re still around, are you?’ … His second line was, ‘One thing I’ve always wanted to ask you: Who is the bigger cunt, your singer or mine?’ And I said, ‘Well, as your singer wrote some of the greatest lyrics of all time, I’m going to say mine.'”
“[Richards] was like, ‘Your band, you were quite interesting there for a while,’ and I was like, ‘I could actually say the same to you,'” Gallagher said further. “But he was great and such a dude. It kinda reaffirms your faith in all your heroes when you meet Keith, because he is the man.”
