Don’t believe everything you read on the internet! The web is flooded with horror stories about Liam Gallagher from Oasis and now Beady Eye. Beady Eye made its US TV debut on June 22, 2011 on Live on Letterman and I was fortunate enough to catch all the action. Naturally, I hoped the night would end as most of my concert experiences end – with me meeting the band. I was quite nervous about meeting Liam Gallagher because of all the bad stories that are out there. Also, from personal experience, when a singer I love is mean to me, it scars me for life. My outlook on life is that I feel you have to at least give it the old college try in precarious situations, so I decided to go for it. I credit my uncanny sense of good timing and upon exiting the venue after watching a great hour long set by Beady Eye, Liam Gallagher was out back smoking a cigarette! The moment of truth. I approached him and said “Hey Liam. Great set.” He thanked me and when I asked if I could take a photo with him, he said “sure.” WOW! Because I push things to the limit, a few moments after the photo was taken, I asked him to sign a couple of Oasis CD covers for me and he obliged me there as well. I cannot say that everything on the web about Liam is untrue, but I also would like to have it put out there that he’s not an entirely horrible person like the net might have you believe. Thanks again Liam so much! I won’t be forgetting this night any time soon.
