Gallagher: 'Oasis Are A Rudderless Ship'
Oasis rocker Noel Gallagher fears the band's current tour of South America will collapse - after relations with singer Liam reached an all-time low.
The notoriously volatile brothers are barely speaking after exchanging insults with each other in press interviews and on social networking website Twitter.com.
Guitarist Noel branded Liam "rude, arrogant, intimidating and lazy" last month (Apr09) and said the Wonderwall hitmakers are considering a five-year hiatus once their current promotional commitments end.
Liam hit back, describing Noel as "a big mouth who calls himself a rock star" and insisting the guitarist and his pal - British funnyman Russell Brand - are "a pair of old housewives".
But in a new posting on the band's official blog, Noel labels Oasis "a rudderless ship" and hints Liam's grumpy attitude might spell the end of the band's South American jaunt.
He writes, "We speak at bad times for the Oasis tour. Bad times. We are a rudderless ship at the minute. And there's a f**king s**t-storm on the horizon. I guess all will be revealed in due course. Strange atmosphere. I wouldn't mind but we're in South America! Playing massive stadiums and there's a bit too much hrmph-ing going on for my liking. Shame really."
