Oasis rocker Liam Gallagher is so obsessed with the late BEATLE John Lennon he once impersonated his idol's accent and insisted all those around him call him 'John'.

But bandmate and brother Noel Gallagher was less than impressed when his younger sibling began continuously mimicking Lennon, who originated from Liverpool, England - and quickly put him in his place.

Noel says, "Liam did once say he was the reincarnation of John Lennon to me. In my mum's front room.

"He was talking in a Scouse (Liverpool) accent for three days. He told me I should refer to him as John and I was like, 'I just prefer c**t, man.'"
