Ongoing History Daily: Liam Gallagher’s hotel room trampoline

When you’re a rock star, you often find yourself ensconced in a bubble where no one dares tell you that you can’t do something. Ask and ye shall receive. Anything to keep the artist happy and producing and performing.

Take the case of Liam Gallagher. At the height of Oasis’ stardom, Liam was staying at a high-end hotel when he called down to room service and ordered a trampoline up to his room. Why? Because, as he told the concierge, “I like to bounce.”

It’s unclear as to which hotel was involved or whether his wish was granted, but I wouldn’t be surprised if it happened. It’s good to be a rock star. At least sometimes.
