The bar has already been set incredibly high though after this story from Liam Gallagher went viral yesterday. The Oasis frontman tells us all about the time the band once found themselves in a bar with Maradona in Argentina and he ended up threatening to shoot them:

We was in Argentina, and we’d done a gig.

Next minute we’re sat in the bar having a f**king drink, and about 30 people come legging it in, like the Ant Hill Mob.

We were going ‘Who the f**king hell’s that?’ Sting was at the bar crying cos he’d had his f**king dressing room robbed, and anyway we found out it was Maradona.

He’d gone upstairs with a load of f**king madheads, and a load of f**ing, women of the night.

And we were going like, can we go up and meet him, to the interpreter. And the interpreter said ‘Alright cool, let me go and square it with them.’

He’s gone up, come back down and gone ‘Only the Gallagher brothers can go up.’ So we were like, ‘laters’.

We steamed up there and there’s loads of f**king, activity going on, and Maradona’s in the middle of the room doing football tricks with a bottle top.

And his eyes were f**king like that [huge], and ours weren’t far off, and I just went like, ‘It’s a bit moody in here, let’s get a quick picture with him and f**k off.

And he’s sweating his b******s off, and we turn around [to the interpreter] and he says: ‘He told me to tell you, if yous leave with any of these b*****s, he’ll have you shot.’”

Incredible, even if it sounds like it might have been a joke. I bet even the Gallagher brothers didn’t wanna didn’t wanna test it out though when they were on his home turf and he was gakked off his face. Could really have been a recipe for disaster.

To be honest though, this might not even be the tip of the iceberg as I reckon pretty much every celebrity out there has probably got a story like that about Maradona because he sounds like he was an absolute madhead following his retirement from football and Subsequent new career in relentless partying.
