The Blur rocker stopped by Radio X to give Johnny Vaughan a one-on-one bass lesson and reveal the advice Liam Gallagher gave him.

Last year, Johnny Vaughan was looking to start a new career as a rock star, and was offered an invaluable lesson from none other than Blur bassist Alex James.

The Radio X presenter and his band The Templetones previously shared their take on The Ramones' Sheena Is a Punk Rocker, Sunta Is A Punk Rocker.

But then, Britpop icon-turned-cheese farmer Alex James has stepped in to give Vaughan a bass lesson and share some advice given to him by none other than Oasis legend and his Britpop rival Liam Gallagher.
