IF OASIS AND LYNYRD SKYNYRD GOT INTO A FIGHT, WHO WOULD WIN?

LONDON (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Southern Rock legends Lynyrd Skynyrd did plenty of boozing and brawling in their heyday – but what do they think of today’s rowdy rockers like Oasis?

Skynyrd guitarist Gary Rossington says he thinks the battling Gallagher brothers are a pair of “creeps.”

In fact, Rossington says after he saw the bad-boy brothers boasting they were better than the Beatles, he got so angry he wanted to – in his words – “kick their ass.”

Rossington admits Skynyrd may have a reputation as dirty barroom brawlers, but he says at least the band isn’t as conceited as Oasis.

He says the only reason his band has such a tough reputation is because the members cut their chops playing gigs in front of “...the meanest rednecks and Navy guys in Florida.”

Rossington may have a chance to beat the Brits’ butts soon, because his band will be finishing up their European tour with a few shows in England.
