Biography

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.

There were a number of defining bands of the 90's but Oasis were indisputably one of the biggest. Having formed in 1991, brothers Liam and Noel both had a great desire to be in the biggest band in the world, but the thought behind that was perhaps a little more basic; they wanted to make music. Though Noel was a relatively late member of Oasis, after he joined he became the main songwriter and the band focussed on recording the songs he'd previously written.

Touring the county with little money, the boys were offered a gig in Glasgow at King Tut's Wah Wah and made the journey from Manchester up to the Scottish town. Upon arrival, it was touch and go as to if the Mancunian's would even get to play but eventually they managed to get an opening slot for the night's proceedings  and they immediately caught the attention of Alan Mcgee who asked them to sign to his label there and then. McGee's deal with the band would come to fruition  some months later when he secured the UK rights to releasing the group's music.

By 1994 Oasis would have recorded a number of demos and they were finally ready to release their official debut single 'Supersonic' which would reach the dizzying heights of number 31 in the UK Singles Chart - which for a group yet to make names for themselves was actually pretty good!

10 Things The New Oasis Documentary Should Include


Oasis Liam Gallagher Noel Gallagher

Any Oasis fans who happened to see the powerful documentary film Amy earlier this year will have been delighted by the news that the team behind it is to make a piece about the Mancunian Britpop legends.

Asif Kapadia, who directed the Winehouse doc, is taking a production role on the as-yet-untitled project, with the rest of his team assisted director Mat Whitecross, himself having made the fictional Stone Roses-centred movie Spike Island and the Ian Dury biopic Sex and Drugs and Rock and Roll.

With “unprecedented access” granted to the Oasis archives, we can hope for a ton of unreleased footage and music as the film-makers chart the entire history of the group. However, here are ten milestones in Oasis’ history that should definitely be included.

Noel And Liam Gallagher To Appear In Forthcoming Oasis Documentary Film

More details about the upcoming Oasis documentary film being produced by the makers of Amy, as both Noel and Liam Gallagher have offered their co-operation to the project and will both feature in the movie. It’s unlikely that they’ll appear together, but we can live in hope.

The two brothers were the sole constant members of the often turbulent Britpop giants, whose commercial fortunes peaked in the mid ‘90s but whose popularity endured until their eventual disintegration in Paris in August 2009. They have not worked together since and are believed not to have had any contact at all, though they have occasionally fired pot-shots at each other through the press.
