Having been the voice to some of the greatest British rock ‘n’ roll of the 1990s (and 2000s, depending on who you talk to), the debut Australian visit from Liam Gallagher and his cohorts finally provides an opportunity to see what Beady Eye has to offer this post-Oasis world.
Ahead of their first ever Australian tour Beady Eye drummer Chris Sharrock reflects on the band’s topsy-turvy year with MICHAEL HARTT.
2013 was the best of times and worst of times for Beady Eye. Having spent the first part of the year recording their second studio album, BE, with producer Dave Sitek, the band and their new material received a much warmer reception than they did for their debut Different Gear, Still Speeding. Then, a few shows into the start of their album tour, guitarist Gem Archer was hospitalised with severe head trauma after falling down stairs at his home, leading to months of forced inaction and loss of momentum.
