Oasis vs. Coldplay!

The JerseyNut is now a Liam Gallagher fan! The Oaisis frontman, angered by anti-war remarks made by Coldplay's Chris Martin at a teenage cancer charity benefit, takes him on:

LIAM GALLAGHER has called COLDPLAY frontman CHRIS MARTIN a "knobhead student" for expressing strong anti-war views at a fundraising show.The Oasis singer slammed Martin for his comments at the band's Teenage Cancer Trust show In London on Monday (March 24), where he encouraged the sell-out crowd at the Royal Albert Hall to "sing against war".

The verbal assault came after Gallagher appeared as a special guest at Richard Ashcroft's Teenage Cancer Trust show at the same venue on Wednesday (March 26). He told The Sun : "When Coldplay did this gig they banged on about the war, that's wrong. Chris Martin shouldn't be using this cause to bang on about his own views on the war. If him and his gawky bird [ a reference to Gwenneth Paltrow, I suppose - ed.] want to go banging on about the war they can do it at their own gigs."

"These gigs are about kids who have got cancer, they've got to fight a war every day of their lives. That's what we're all here doing this for."

Thank you, Liam!
