Liam Gallagher Said He Gave Up Weed After Having a Mad One’ on a Recent Family Vacation

Published on

Most cannabis consumers have at least one story about a time they had a little too much, but infamous rock musician Liam Gallagher said his last cannabis experience was so bad he had to give the stuff up for good.

I had a bit of weed, because I was on holiday, and it was strong,” Gallagher told Celebretainment. You know when you have to sneak off because you’re having a mad one? That was me.”

I had to go and have a word with myself in a cupboard and all I could hear was this song by Fat White Family that sounded like Nightclubbing’ by Iggy Pop on a loop, for about an hour. It was top.”

And this wasn’t the first time that over indulging on a bit of cannabis ruined something for Gallagher. He said he hasn’t been able to eat oysters since devouring nearly 150 of them during a night of heavy smoking in Philadelphia back in the Oasis days.

Me, Whitey [Alan White] and Guigs [Paul McGuigan] got really stoned and kept ordering trays of them,” said Gallagher. It was really good weed. All night we were talking about going to the beach in the morning. I think that’s why we kept ordering oysters.”

But, as it turned out the Oasis bandmates never made it to the beach the next day, mostly because there wasn’t one to go to.

Then Whitey said, Er, there’s no beach in Philadelphia’. I went over to the window, pulled back the curtain to show them the sea … it was an air-conditioning unit in a brick wall.”

But, while Liam seems to be going on a bit of a weed abstinence kick, his brother and former Oasis bandmate Noël is probably still waiting on Amazon to deliver his cannabis via drone.
