Liam Gallagher admits 'I haven't got Noel's number'

Liam Gallagher has revealed he has not spoken to his brother Noel for years, and does not even have his phone number.

Formerly bandmates in Oasis, the pair's ongoing feud spiralled out of control in 2009 when Noel quit the band.

Liam, now the frontman of Beady Eye, told Radio 5 Live's Phil Williams, he has nothing to say to his brother.

When asked in an interview why he did not just pick up the phone and call his brother, he said: "I haven't got his number."

Discussing the frosty relationship with Noel, Liam said: "I've got nothing to say to him. Not interested in the slightest right now."

Liam Gallagher has a 'new-found focus' on music

Once known for his frequent drug intake, Liam Gallagher has revealed his band's new album was written with a "clear head".

Formally the Oasis frontman, the singer said his group Beady Eye had a "new-found focus", suggesting he had moved on from his excesses.

Gallagher, 40, said: "We had a new-found focus when we were writing it - we really got our heads down and got our s*** together - clear heads, none of that c*** from the 90s."

Gallagher's brother Noel walked out on Oasis in August 2009, following a cancelled performance at V Festival.

The group have even used iPhone apps to work on some of the songs for their forthcoming album BE, out on June 10.

However, last month the pair flaunted their new friendship at the Brit Awards, where they shared a table and hinted of a possible future collaboration.

Noel Gallagher has revealed he knocked back a marriage proposal at a gig from a male fan.

The musician was left bemused by the cheeky request as he was performing a gig at the Teatro Metropolitan in Mexico City.

It came just hours after Gallagher felt the tremors from a Mexican earthquake, which led to him being evacuated from a TV interview. Writing in his blog, the pop star said: "I'll forever remember my own show for a funny scene with someone holding up a placard that said 'Noel will you marry me?'.

"Thing is, it was actually a guy - and he looked genuinely upset when I informed him I was already spoken for...funny though." Gallagher said the show marked a first during his many years of gigging. "The support band got booed off. Booed off! I've never seen that in nearly 20 years," he wrote.
