Liam Gallagher has told how a fan once snorted his dandruff - after mistaking it for a chunk of cocaine.

The singer, once noted for his own use of the drug, said the man had spotted a flake from his scalp after he performed at Glastonbury, then popped it up his nostril.

Liam told the new edition of Q magazine that he suffers from skin condition psoriasis, which affects much of his body. "I've got bad skin. I've got psoriasis all over my f****** body. Everywhere except for me face. And every now and again on me head," he said.

Liam said the drug mix-up happened after he had performed at the festival with former band Oasis. "Everyone's backstage and this geezer comes up to me off his t**s, going 'I ain't seen Oasis for f****** years, f****** great' and I'm going 'yeah, alright'.

"And he goes to his mate. 'look Steve, he's even got cocaine in his hair'. And he pulls a bit of s*** out me hair."

He claimed the unnamed man then snorted it. The drug is jokingly referred to as "devil's dandruff".

Liam has formed a new band, Beady Eye, who are due to release their debut album Different Gear, Still Speeding on February 28.

He also told Q about his difficult relationship with his brother Noel, who quit Oasis in summer 2009, saying the pair had been effectively estranged for years. "Listen, me and our kid didn't hang out. It wasn't like we were best buddies and then summat happened.

"I've always led my life, so's he, and we'd be like that if we worked in a butcher's together. He left the band, that's it," said Liam.

:: The full interview is in the March edition of Q, which is out next week.

Gemini:

You are being overly critical of your best friend or romantic partner. Even if you think their plans are ill founded, you should keep such thoughts to yourself. Undermining a person's enthusiasm will only create resentment. If you're tired of being implicated in your loved one's harebrained schemes, have a heart to heart discussion. A temporary separation can help each of you figure out what you want from your relationship. It may be time for you to seek a more practical companion.More
