Beady Eye - Beady Eye To Play Oasis Songs?

Beady Eye may play Oasis songs when they next tour.

The group - made up from the remaining members of the 'Don't Look Back in Anger' band after Noel Gallagher left - refused to play any of their former songs since forming and releasing debut album 'Different Gear, Still Speeding', but singer Liam Gallagher is now reconsidering this position.

He told US radio station Live 105: "The mentality is, Oasis was no longer, we believed, and still believe, in our album, and we're not going to play any old songs and we're going to stick to it until the end of the year.

"And maybe next time we go out, next year, with the new album, we could get a few in there - who knows.

"But I think we've done alright without playing them. I've got no desire to play them at the moment to be quite honest, I've heard them enough. But, you know, maybe next year we might throw a few in there."

Noel - who hasn't spoken to his brother since he walked out of Oasis - has been playing tracks from the band's back catalogue on live dates promoting his new High Flying Birds project, but Liam thinks he has equal claim to perform the songs, even though his brother wrote most of them.

He added: "If I wanted to play them we'd play them, no one's stopping us from playing them, I feel they're my songs as much as Noel's , regardless of whether I wrote them."

Comparing himself to legendary vocalist Elvis Presley, he added: "It's like Elvis, you'd hate the guy who wrote Elvis's songs to be singing them wouldn't you? You wouldn't know what the f**k was going on. If I want to play them, I'll play them."
