Liam Gallagher, the lead singer of the British band Oasis, not only emulates John Lennon in his songwriting, but shares some of the late Beatle's iconoclastic beliefs about religion: "I live for now, not for what happens after I die. If I die and there's something afterwards, I'm going to hell, not heaven. I mean, the devil's got all the good gear. What's God got? The Inspiral Carpets and nuns. Fuck that." Source: Paul Lester, Oasis: The Illustrated Story, p. 71.
He has said of Oasis "We are bigger than Jesus." His brother Noel, also in the band, said that "Oasis is bigger than God."
Another unreferenced quote by Liam was “If a guy suddenly appears before me with a big beard and locks and all that caper and performed some f***ing miracle, and then said to me "Liam, I am God", I'd say Fair enough, it's a fair cop. I didn't believe in you but fair play, you've got me. But until that day comes he can f*** right off.” --Liam on God
A reader reports: I believe there is an error beginning the reference to Liam Gallagher. His brother Noel is the songwriter who emulates John Lennon. Liam has never written anything for any of the band's songs. However, Liam is responsible for the quote that comes after the introduction. (Ed. another reader says that Liam has written songs on at least two Oasis albums.)
