Pete Townshend circa 1969 is the reason I get up in the morning.
The story of how Liam and Gem first met.
Liam: When I met Gem, he had a badge. You had a Beatle badge, didn’t you?
Liam: And I tried to [wank] it off him and..
Gem: Yes, fuck, you did!!!
Liam: He was was kicking and screaming.
Gem: And he wore it…
Liam: You were kicking and screaming, now, weren’t you?
Gem: Yeah, but then you wore it on the cover of NMEs and it was kinda cool. Alright, he meant it.
Gem: When I met Liam it was when my old band was supporting Oasis and I hadn’t met him before that and he just walked in the dressing room. He just […] and just said hello and everything and then he said he liked my badge and could he have it.
Int: You gave it to him?
Int: (laughing) Of course you did!
Gem: And he wore it on the front cover of the NME.
Int.: And you were like “That’s my badge”?
Gem: I’ll tell you what it was and this is gonna sound pretty obvious and all but it was a fucking good badge and it was the Beatles drums kit. Not the actual one, […] a tiny kit. But, yeah. Yeah, that’s what it was.
