Liam Gallagher says being in Oasis is better than being God.
The British rocker boasted that being a divine being is no match for singing in his band.
Liam - whose idol John Lennon sparked mass outrage in the US in 1966 when he declared The Beatles were "more popular than Jesus" - said: "If I wasn't a musician I don't know, I'd be God, maybe? That would be a good job. That's the next highest honour. Being in Oasis, then being f***ing God! Top!"
Although Liam is convinced he is more important than God, the 'Lyla' singer admits he is interested in religion.
Liam - who was raised a Catholic - revealed: "I'm intrigued by religion but I don't practice. What interests me is people's need for guidance. I'm not interested, I guide myself. If I bump into walls, I bump into walls. I'm like a little bumper car, I keep bumping into questions and answers and it's a top buzz man."
It is not the first Liam or his brother and bandmate Noel Gallagher have boasted to be more important than God.
Liam previously echoed Lennon's claim insisting his band were "bigger than Jesus" and would be "as big as The Beatles, if not bigger" in the group's 90s heyday.
When once asked if Oasis were more important to young people than God, Noel replied: "I would have to say, without a shadow of a doubt, that is true. I would hope we mean more to people than putting money in a church basket and saying 10 Hail Marys on a Sunday."
