4 December 2014

Don't forget to pick up a copy of the award-winning PUSB at every home game...

Coventry City's award-winning match-day programme PUSB has been brimming with fantastic content this season from your Sky Blues squad.

One of the features to gain plenty of recognition among City fans this season has been 'Changing Places' where we ask each City player if they could change places with someone, who would it be!?

It is one of the features which helped PUSB claim the League One programme of the year, from the Midlands Programme Club, along with many other exciting features.

Check out one of our Changing Places from earlier in the season with Jim O'Brien below and remember, PUSB will be available around the Ricoh Arena for our next home clash with Fleetwood, where we have plenty of exclusive christmas content from the squad!

WHO WOULD YOU CHANGE PLACES WITH?

Liam Gallagher

WHY LIAM GALLAGHER?

He’s just a total rock and roll star. He’s from my generation and he was the man when I was growing up. I loved Oasis when I was younger, I listened to them a lot and he’s probably one of my heroes to be honest.

WHAT IS HIS BEST QUALITY?

Probably being a front man. I’ve seen him live a few times and he seems to enjoy the buzz he generates at his gigs and his ability to connect with a crowd. It’s pretty cool to watch.

WHAT IS YOUR BEST MEMORY OF HIM?

I touched him once. That probably sounds a bit weird. I don’t think that I’m somebody that gets star struck, I’ve never been that way, but I was at the front of a gig once and he came to the front to say hello to people and I touched his arm. As a youngster it was great at the time and something I always remember.

IF YOU COULD PICK ANY OF HIS QUALITIES FOR YOURSELF WHAT WOULD THEY BE?

Just that fact that he does what he does and he doesn’t care about other people’s opinions. For that would be to keep doing what I think is right, working hard and taking an approach that I think is the right one for my career.

IF YOU COULD ASK HIM ONE QUESTION WHAT WOULD IT BE?

What came first? The chicken or the egg?

BIOGRAPHY

Liam Gallagher, love him or hate him, was arguably the quintessential British rock star of the 1990’s.

The former lead singer of band Oasis, which included his lead guitarist brother Noel, the group enjoyed stratospheric success over 18 years before they broke up in 2009 following one too many well documented sibling bust ups.

Although now fronting Beady Eye, a group he started in 2009, and founding and owning successful clothing label Pretty Green, the self-styled hell raiser has found it difficult to recreate the musical success of his earlier years but that is understandable considering the height at which the bar was set.

Oasis released seven studio albums for which they won 36 awards during their time together including six BRIT’s, five MTV awards, two prestigious Ivor Novello’s and 18 individual magazine accolades, a track record which made them THE rock band of the late 20th and early 21st century.

With his trademark ‘hands-behind-the-back’ singing style, Liam Gallagher is one of the world’s most recognisable front men and the epitomy of the first track on Oasis’s first ever studio album ‘Definitely Maybe, he’s a ‘Rock ‘n’ Roll Star’.

FACT

Liam Gallagher attributes his love for music to a ‘spiritual connection’ with deceased Beatles legend, and personal hero, John Lennon and credits the late icon with an out-of-body experience Gallagher had as a teenager. " I was about 17 or 16, and as far as I'm concerned, that's when I started getting into music. That's when it all started going down, and I reckon it has something to do with him. He don't come and visit me - at least, I don't think he does. I wish he did."
