Liam Gallagher hires chopper to get to chip shop
Oasis frontman Liam Gallagher was so desperate for an upmarket chip butty while on tour in Manchester he hired a helicopter to fly him to a Lake District hotel.
Liam, 36, and Tom Meighan, 28, singer with rock band Kasabian who are supporting Oasis, landed in a field next to the Miller Howe Hotel in Windermere.
The manager, Nigel Williamson, said yesterday: “It was bizarre. I went out to meet them and Liam came striding across the fields in leopard-print shoes.”
The rock stars ate chip butties with tomato sauce and drank Pinot Grigio white wine and tequila in the hotel conservatory.
Nigel said: “Their language was quite colourful so it was just as well they had a private room.”
