Pharrell’s Producer of the Year GRAMMY might have gone straight to his head or at least his hat, since he’s making some crazy suggestions about who he’d like to work with next.
Case in point: Noel and Liam Gallagher, the feuding brothers of Oasis, who Pharrell told BBC Newsbeathe’d like to reunite for a new collaboration. ”Who wouldn’t want to work with the Gallaghers? Yeah, both of them,” Pharrell said.
While it all sounds a little crazy, Pharrell does admit it’s a “dream project,” knowing that the chances of getting those two together is practically slim to none. The Gallaghers haven’t worked together since 2009 when Noel left the group and Liam started Beady Eye with the remaining members of Oasis.
In the same interview, Pharrell also said he would like to work with Elton John, whose song “Rocket Man” inspired his son’s name, “Rocket,” and Stevie Wonder. The latter isn’t that farfetched being that the two performed alongside Daft Punk and Nile Rodgersat this year’s GRAMMYs.
