Liam Gallagher said his recent pre-performance ritual consisted of drinking half a bottle of brandy with honey and hot water.

he, the former frontman of Oasis, who celebrated his 50th birthday on Wednesday, admitted he’s been “a bit battered” on stage lately.

Gallagher is currently in the midst of a series of international live dates and will visit Abu Dhabi, Chile and Argentina in the coming months.

Speaking of how he warms up his voice before performances, he says: “It was half a bottle of brandy before I started. I removed it now. But last year, I mixed brandy with honey and hot water, and continued a little…

“I’ve been a bit battered on stage lately. Not much battered but just…

“I wouldn’t say stressful but I think as you get older you get a little more… You’re not stupid anymore. So I drank a glass of brandy just to relax a bit.

“When you get there, then you’re thinking about the seventh song or the sixth song, you’re thinking, ‘Yeah, this is really okay, man. I will have another ‘.

“Then when the eighth song came out, when you finished the 20th song, you finished a bottle.

“But now I already feel cold. For the last few gigs I’ve been in, ‘Can relax’. You don’t want to be dependent on getting on stage with alcohol.

“I usually don’t drink before I start. I hadn’t done it in years so I went back to drinking before moving on. But I think it’s a bit like a prison.

He said: “The main thing for me is obviously I smoke and I drink and I join, unlike some f****** rock stars. And I’ve been doing that since I was 14, 15 years old.

“A few years ago, I might have had a six-month break to blow off steam, but I used to drink and smoke and whatever.

“I had six months off in my 30s. So my voice will change, and it will change over the years.

“But it’s all in there. It’s like, as soon as that mic opens, as soon as that mic is there and you go put your stamp on it, if you feel it’s there. “

He also mentioned plans to collaborate further with John Squire after The Stone Roses guitarist joined him on stage for his recent performances at Knebworth.

He said, “Seriously, man, but we have things to do first, and he has things to deal with and that. But, yes, I’ll definitely do something about it at some point. “
