Gallagher brothers set to write autobiographies

Liam and Noel Gallagher are planning to write their autobiographies.

The brothers, who have barely spoken to each other since a huge backstage bust-up ended their band Oasis in August 2009, have received separate offers to tell their life stories and both are "seriously considering" putting pen to paper.

A source told the Daily Star newspaper: "The book company want both Noel and Liam to sign with them. They are seriously considering it as they both feel old and wise enough to write an autobiography and, of course, they would be paid good money."

Liam, 41, is said to be more interested in the deal than 46-year-old Noel because he wants fans to know what really happened behind the scenes.

The source continued: "Liam says he wants to do it and has vowed to spill the beans on the feud. He sees it as his chance to tell his side of the story. And no doubt if Liam goes for it, Noel won't be far behind."

The brothers reportedly put an end to their feud over the festive season and friends are said to be concerned the books could spark another row.

The source said: "Their friends are worried it will open old wounds and could cause them to fall out again when they only just made up."

Since the group disbanded, Liam started new band Beady Eye with former Oasis members Gem Archer, Andy Bell and Chris Sharrock, while Noel has embarked on his own solo project, Noel Gallagher's High Flying Birds.
