Everything We Learnt From Liam Gallagher’s Bonkers Reddit AMA

His last meal would be "an egg".

We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again: if there’s a single subject on earth that Liam Gallagher doesn’t have an opinion on, we have yet to find it.

In the long and colourful promo campaign for his debut record As You Were, the former Oasis frontman has bemoaned his hatred of the sea, his brother, rap music, organised fun, having to make his own tea, dance music, automobile standards, his brother some more, and concept albums.

So it was only ever going to be a matter of time until Gallagher was tapped for a Reddit AMA — and he definitely didn’t disappoint.
