LIAM GALLAGHER has revealed that he’s a big fan of Buckfast – after trying the tonic wine when he was NINE.
The former Oasis frontman and notorious hell-raiser was mobbed by fans in Glasgow yesterday as he opened his new clothes shop in the city.
And he said: “I love Glasgow, it’s great. When I was nine, I tried Buckfast for the first time. I still love it now.”
A crowd of 200 lookalike fans in Liam-style mop tops and parkas greeted the star as he arrived at the store.
But he made a beeline for disabled Harry Johnston, who just happened to be passing, and gave him a big hug.
Thrilled Harry said: “He cuddled me and said, ‘All right, wee man?’ I was flabbergasted.”
Liam’s notorious for his booze fuelled tantrums and rows with brother Noel but fans said he was in great spirits yesterday.
Plasterer Martin Rush, 30, of Cumbernauld, said: “Liam was on really good form.”
Martin’s girlfriend Kim, 28, of Glasgow, added: “He was full of smiles, not like you usually see in the papers. I got cuddles and kisses from him.”
Liam has a soft spot for Glasgow after Oasis were discovered at King Tut’s Wah Wah Hut in the city by record boss Alan McGee.
The football-daft star follows Celtic as well as his main team, Manchester City.
