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.

Isle of Wight Festival Liam Gallagher

A look at the line-up for the festival's 50th anniversary.

They say life begins at fifty, and with 2018 being the Isle of Wight Festival's 50th anniversary, we have high hopes for this year's event. It's always a blast, but this year the line-up needs to be particularly special and, thankfully, that's one thing the festival has already delivered on.

Image caption Isle of Wight Festival 2018

The beauty of this festival (apart from it being on the Isle of Wight) is how family friendly it is. The atmosphere is always so relaxed, and where else are you going to listen to some great DJs while staring at a statue in a field of a bloke with a bow and arrow? No, not Robin Hood, it's 'The Strongbow Yard'; a buzzing little place that adds to the whole experience much like another favourite, Kashmir Café.

He's happy to be a part of the woman's life.

It seems Liam Gallagher is ready to embark on a new chapter of fatherhood by being more present in his previously estranged daughter Molly Moorish's life. He met her for the first time at a Rolling Stones concert last week, which was also attended by his teenage sons Gene and Lennon.

The 45-year-old Britpop star was supporting the Rolling Stones in London yet again this weekend, and he ended up talking about his meeting with 21-year-old Molly, who was born from his affair with Lisa Moorish during his marriage to Patsy Kensit.

They reunited backstage at his London show.

While Liam Gallagher is yet to fix his relationship with brother Noel Gallagher after twenty years, he has finally got round to meeting his estranged daughter Molly Moorish - his child from his affair with Lisa Moorish. And it seems this touching reunion is a very happy one.

Image caption Liam Gallagher performs in London

It was only recently that the 45-year-old Oasis star admitted that he had never properly met 21-year-old Molly, save for a brief time 19 years ago, given that she was conceived during his affair with Lisa Moorish while he was married to Patsy Kensit in 1997. Neither, he confessed, did he have a relationship with his other daughter Gemma Ghorbani from his affair with Liza Ghorbani while married to Nicole Appleton.

The film, concerning the story of Liam's post-Oasis solo career and first album 'As You Were', will screen later this month at Cannes Film Festival.

Following a highly successful year with the release of his first solo album, former Oasis frontman Liam Gallagher is to be the subject of a new documentary film, which will premiere at Cannes later this month.

According to The Hollywood Reporter on Thursday (May 3rd), the new film will be called Liam Gallagher: As It Was, and tells the “emotional story of how one of the greatest rock frontmen went from the dizzying heights of his champagne supernova years in Oasis to living on the edge, ostracised and lost in the musical wilderness of boredom, booze and legal battles.”

The picture will be directed by Charlie Lightening, who previously worked with Gallagher in his first post-Oasis project Beady Eye, and directed the video for his recent solo single ‘Chinatown’.

Liam Gallagher Brands Noel's Wife Sara MacDonald A "Witch"

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.”

How Liam Gallagher Brought Tears To Our Eyes With Manchester Tribute

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.

Image caption Liam Gallagher at Brits after party

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.

Liam Gallagher Attends Same BRITs Aftershow Party As The Daughter He's "Never Met"

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.

Ariana Grande Pulls Out Of Manchester Tribute At BRIT Awards 2018

Ariana Grande Liam Gallagher Brit Awards

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.

Liam Gallagher Alleges Police Pulled Out His Front Teeth

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.

Image caption Liam Gallagher performing live

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.
