Liam Gallagher was unhappy that his group Beady Eye gave their debut track, 'Bring The Light', away as a free download
Liam Gallagher never wanted to give Beady Eye's music away for free.
The singer - who is joined in his new group by former Oasis bandmates Gem Archer, Andy Bell and Chris Sharrock - insists it wasn't his idea to showcase their first track 'Bring The Light' as an unpaid for download on the band's official website.
He said: "It got everybody off the sofa and humping around like a bunch of f***ing monkeys. And that's what we're after.
"It wasn't my idea to give it away for f***ing nothing though. I'll tell you right now, I wasn't having that."
The rocker also revealed he was responsible for naming the new group, but insists they would have been successful regardless of their moniker.
He added: "That was my idea. We'd come up with loads of names but that was the one that rang true for me.
"But it's not about the name anyway is it? It's about how good your music is. You could be called Veiny Love Stick, but if your music's s**t then it's s**t. At the end of the day, a name's a name. It's what you put into it that matters."
