Date of birth
21st September, 1972
Liam Gallagher (DOB 21st September 1972) is the famous front man for the Manchester band Oasis. With his unforgettable stage presence and self assured attitude, he is one of the countries most recognisable front men of our generation.
Favourites of the tabloids and paparazzi in the 90's, Liam's swagger and laddish behaviour earned him a justifiable bad boy image, with equal coverage for his music and personal life.His often documented rocky relationship with his brother and band mate Noel Gallagher, has often defined the band and their tempestuous harmony.
Music Career: Away from the tabloid newspapers and with his band Oasis they quickly became stalwarts of the 1990's Britpop movement. Arguably winning the ongoing chart battles with Blur, Oasis' 1994 album 'Definitely Maybe' is one of the defining albums of the decade and some say our generation.
In a 2008 poll by Q and HMV, 'Definitely Maybe' was ranked first on a list of the greatest British albums of all time.
Other accolades include a recent poll, run by music magazine NME and the book of British Hit Singles and Albums, that voted 'Definitely Maybe' the best album of all time with The Beatles' Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band - finishing second and Revolver third.
Liam Gallagher and Oasis followed up 'Definitely Maybe' with the 1995 release '(What's the Story) Morning Glory'. Carrying on from the success of their debut album 347,000 copies were sold in the first week of release and more than 18 million copies have been sold worldwide up until 2007.
With brilliant sales and all four singles from the album reaching either number 1 or 2 in the UK single charts, the daunting prospect of following on from 'Definitely Maybe' was seemingly achieved with ease.
In contrast, album wise 'Be Here Now' (1997), 'Standing on the Shoulder of Giants' (2000) and 'Heathen Chemistry (2002) all came and went without the impact of their early releases. Critics sat on both sides of the fence and although all three albums provided us with some classic Oasis and Liam Gallagher vocals, they didn't evoke the frenzy they had become accustomed to during the Brit Pop years.
Regardless of such media indifference, Liam and the band bounced back with 'Don't Believe the Truth' (2005), which saw Liam take on more of a writing role and Oasis attain resurgence in form.
With singles 'Lyla' and 'The Importance of Being idle' reaching number 1, and 'Let there be love' reaching number 2 in the UK Single charts - Oasis were back and experiencing similar press exposure and fan admiration as they did in the 90's.
With a seventh studio album slated for release later in 2008, Liam Gallagher and Oasis are surely hoping to build on 'Don't Believe the Truth', although if they don't they'll still go down as one of our generations greatest bands and Liam will be up there for greatest front man.
Personal Life: Liam is an avid support of Manchester City Football club.
He was married to actress Patsy Kensit, who he has a child with and is now married to former All Saint's singer, Nicole Appleton, who he also has a child with.
His shoe size is 8.
In an outburst on Twitter this week, Liam described his sister-in-law in pretty disparaging terms, and said she's the reason there won't be an Oasis reunion.
The likelihood of any Oasis reunion in the foreseeable future is getting more remote by the week, with Liam Gallagher now hitting out at his brother Noel’s wife, Sara MacDonald, on Twitter, claiming that she is the reason that the Britpop legends can’t get back together.
“Think it’s time to address the witch,” the 45 year old singer took to his social media account to say today. “You want me to drop dead – you have a screw loose and know the world knows.”
Liam continued: “She’s the reason Oasis is no longer – have to put it out there, she’s DARK.” Recalling an alleged incident apparently from their Oasis days, he wrote: “We were about to go on tour to [the] USA – she robbed Noel’s passport. Fucked with his head for a week – he came crying at my door, she’s proper dark.”

He performed 'Live Forever' at the 2018 Brit Awards.
It's rare that Liam Gallagher can be so poignant as to make his fans cry, but he did just that with his rendition of 'Live Forever' at the 2018 Brit Awards, honouring the victims of the terrorist attack on Manchester Arena last year. A more than suitable replacement for an ill Ariana Grande.
Nobody was more sorry to miss out on the show than Ariana Grande herself, who was forced to stay at home on doctors' orders due to ill health instead of performing a tribute to the 22 people who were killed in the Northern city. But former Oasis star Liam Gallagher was a fitting choice to cover her.

The Oasis star attended the Warner Bros. aftershow bash in London, the same party his daughter Molly Moorish was at.
Potentially awkward scenes after the BRIT Awards last night, as Liam Gallagher apparently attended the same aftershow party as the daughter that he’s never met.
Having performed ‘Live Forever’ during the awards show on Wednesday night (February 21st), Liam attended the lavish post-ceremony bash thrown by his record label Warner Bros. at London’s Freemasons Hall.
The 45 year old former Oasis star attended with his teenage son, Lennon, who was dressed in similarly styled khaki parka jacket to his dad’s. However, maybe unbeknownst to Liam, another one of his kids was also in attendance at the party – Molly Moorish, the daughter he shares with rock star Lisa Moorish.
With only hours to go before the 2018 BRITs, organisers have reportedly roped in Liam Gallagher to step in for Grande.
Brit Awards organisers have been left with a headache after Ariana Grande pulled out of a secretly-planned tribute to the victims of last year’s Manchester terror attack, leaving them scrambling to find a replacement with just hours to go ahead of tonight’s performance.
Reports on Wednesday (February 21st) suggested that the 24 year old pop star was lined up to perform at tonight’s ceremony at the O2 Arena in London, in tribute to the victims of the terrorist attack last May at Manchester’s Arena during one of her concerts, which was set to be the pinnacle of the ceremony.
However, it’s understood that Grande has fallen ill in recent days and, despite her intention to come to the BRIT Awards in spite of that, has been ordered by her doctor not to make the trans-Atlantic journey.

He thinks they were ripped out after that infamous German hotel brawl.
Liam Gallagher has made a sensational claim that his two front teeth were deliberately pulled out by police in Germany fifteen years ago, following the infamous fight that broke out between the members of Oasis, some bystanders and the cops themselves at a hotel bar in Munich.
He's grown up a lot since then, and while he's willing to accept that he's always been 'an arrogant c***', Liam still has a sneaking suspicion that he didn't sustain all his injuries during that particular brawl. In fact, he thinks that German police got their own back while he was unconscious in a cell.

Their Christmas truce turned out to be non-existent.
It was an exciting moment at Christmas when it looked like Liam Gallagher and his brother Noel Gallagher were back on track, but it seems their peace was far too good to be true. Liam has just revealed that, far from resolving their 20-year feud, neither of them have met up again yet.
It's been a confusing last few months; both brothers have criticised each other, though Liam has repeatedly said that he misses being in Oasis with Noel. Things seemed to get more positive at Christmas, though since then their relationship has only gone back downhill.

The full winners of this year's VO5 NME Awards.
It was a big night for the 2018 VO5 NME Awards, which this year saw the likes of Ariana Grande being named Hero of the Year and Liam Gallagher winning the Godlike Genius award. Indeed, Liam admits his life is going to be no different now that he's 'godlike'.
This year's Best British Band award was given to Alt-J after they released their third album 'Relaxer' last year. Best International Band, meanwhile, went to the Haim sisters who followed up their debut with 'Something to Tell You' in July. Kasabian took home Best Live Artist, with Muse being named Best Festival Headliner.
In a Q&A on Twitter with fans, Liam claimed the organisers wanted him to host the 2018 ceremony but not perform.
Liam Gallagher has launched a scathing and slightly bizarre attack at the organisers of the BRIT Awards, claiming that they asked him to host the ceremony but at the same time refusing him a slot to perform live.
The 45 year old singer, who released his debut solo album As You Were in October last year to critical acclaim and popularity, is up for the British Male Solo Artist award against Loyle Carner, Rag ‘n’ Bone Man, Stormzy and the ubiquitous Ed Sheeran.
Gallagher accused the organisers of the annual bash of being “too scared” to let him loose with a microphone at the O2 Arena in London later this month.

Liam claimed in a new Q magazine interview that his older brother wants to reform Oasis, but that his wife won't let him.
Although there were rumours of a Christmas truce, Liam Gallagher seemingly can’t resist stoking the sibling rivalry with his older brother Noel. This time, he’s claimed his brother is “desperate” to reform Oasis but that his wife won’t let him.
In a new interview with Q magazine, the outspoken singer has claimed that Noel is being blocked from reuniting the legendary Britpop band by his wife, Sara MacDonald. 50 year old Noel has consistently stated that he is not interested in reforming Oasis, but Liam is continuing to bait him.
The 45 year old told the magazine: “He's desperate to get Oasis back but he knows he's crossed that bridge. And he's not allowed to, his missus (Sara MacDonald) won't let him now, cos she's another one.”
