SINGER Liam Gallagher has said his voice goes ‘a bit square’ if he avoids cigarettes and booze.
According to the lyrics of Oasis song Cigarettes and Alcohol, the two vices were all the frontman needed.
And the second-generation Irishman from Manchester revealed to broadcaster Sirius XM that they help give his voice its distinctive sound.
“I know for a fact when I have not had cigarettes and not drank and have been behaving myself I sound a bit square,” he said, reports NME.
“And I do not like that. I like to sound a bit rough and have a bit of character.”
However the Rock N’ Roll Star singer said he had reined in the rock star lifestyle a bit, adding: “I do behave myself a little, but not too much.
“I don’t want to sound like Aled Jones or Michael Bublé.”
Gallagher is currently working on a follow-up to his hit 2017 debut solo album, As You Were.
Last month, older brother Noel poured cold water on the possibility of an Oasis reunion, claiming Liam only wanted to do it ‘for his ego’.
