Icarus-style rock. British musician Liam Gallagher fell from the sky on Friday evening following his concert at the Isle of Wight festival. A helicopter crash. If the mishap could easily turn into a drama, the singer's fall seems, fortunately, to have been rather benign. Obviously in a good mood, the rock star exhibited on Saturday on Twitter his face partially damaged by multiplying the jokes. Faced with an Internet user curious to know from what height he had fallen, the facetious survivor responded with an improbable
"100 thousand feet"
, or some 30 kilometers. Despite his abrasions, the Briton has not lost his stratospheric humor.

Known for having been the singer of the group Oasis for nearly twenty years, Liam Gallagher at least took advantage of his incredible accident to compare himself to the former and sulphurous drummer of The Who, Keith Moon (1946-1978), whose escapades and destructive whims have entered rock legend.
Liam Gallagher also claimed that a video captured the crash and his fall from a helicopter, the precise circumstances of which are still quite unclear.
No details concerning a possible cancellation of Liam Gallagher's next concert, scheduled for September 24 in Belfast, have yet been communicated.
An inspiration for a next album?
The artist did not indicate having gone through a medical center and uploaded, three minutes after the photograph of his scratched face, the image of a Spanish beer, paraphrasing the maxim of Nietzsche:
"What does not not kill makes me stronger ”
. Less than an hour and a half before the scuffed-face tweet, Liam Gallagher also replied on the social network to a fan who asked him what he was drinking:
“Brandy honey, tequila tomato juice”
Whatever the origin, the singer's extravagant adventure could well have inspired him to cover his next album, as the musician suggested on Twitter, between two lines of humor. His photograph, a self-portrait with a harassed gaze and sticking plaster, would it therefore be found on the cover of a future record? For a rock album, the tone would undoubtedly be given, as the main interested party was not mistaken.
"Who said rock 'n' roll is dead?"
, had fun Liam Gallagher, alive and well.
