"Liam has always been fascinated with everything about John Lennon and has long fantasised about having an apartment in the Dakota like he did," The Daily Express quoted a pal, as saying. The pal added: "He loves that part of New York and feels he'd be very much at home there."
Gallagher's fascination with the late Beatle is no secret. He named his first son Lennon and has even claimed to have encountered John's ghost. "Liam would feel close to Lennon's spirit living there," added the friend.
