My favourite songwriter* turns 42 today. May his day be spent in bed, watching football on the telly, wearing top clothes, drinking and smoking cigarettes with his girlfriend and daughter, which should get him nice and rested up before going back on tour next week and playing some of the greatest music in the world. I also really hope his ribs aren't still feeling the unfortunate incident that occurred in Toronto last September. We promise it won't happen again, please come back soon.
And just because you can't have one without the other (though Noel's oft rumored solo project may one day contradict this), here's the less articulate but equally as quotable Liam with his answers to the same query.
*this is just personal taste, I'll be the first to concede that he is by no means the greatest living songwriter and understand that most don't share my highest regards for the man, but you can't deny that he's written at least a couple that will live forever.
