RIP Aretha Franklin what a voice x
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.
Molly Moorish is officially one of the Gallagher family now.
If you had any doubts about Liam Gallagher accepting his parental responsibilities when daughter Molly Moorish tracked him down, it seems you'd be wrong. He invited his girl to join the rest of his family for a glorious summer vacation recently, and it appears the group had a lot of fun bonding.

Molly, 21, posted a series of snaps on her Instagram story from her trip to Spain with Liam, her half-siblings Lennon and Gene, Liam's girlfriend Debbie Gwyther and his mother Peggy. They boarded a private jet for the family holiday on Saturday (July 28th 2018), and it will no doubt have been the perfect bonding adventure.

The singer was not impressed with what landed on stage at Benicassim.
Apparently there's something else we can add on to the list of stuff Liam Gallagher isn't fond of along with most contemporary musicians, his brother and Manchester United; fish. At least, not when it finds itself on stage while he's performing...
Liam Gallagher performs at Latitude
The former Oasis frontman lost it during his performance at Benicassim on Sunday (July 22nd 2018) when he noticed that somebody had thrown seafood on to the stage during his set. Clutching a pair of maracas, he was about to kick off a rendition of 'Cigarettes & Alcohol' when he stopped the show in disgust.

How annoyed does a punter need to be to throw an actual fish at the performer?
Dealing with hecklers is well within the purview of most performing artists, never mind the irascible Liam Gallagher, but even the former Oasis frontman was forced to interrupt his momentum when somebody threw an ACTUAL FISH at him during a festival show in Spain this week.
The 45 year old star was on stage at Barcelona’s Festival Internacional de Benicàssim at the weekend and about to launch into ‘Cigarettes & Alcohol’ when Gallagher stopped his band to confront the crowd, after spotting that somebody had hurled the aquatic creature, as reported by NME.
“Which dickhead threw the fish here then?” Gallagher asked indignantly. “F***ing stinky, smelly fish, man. Now listen man, it really ain’t that f***ing bad, man. Don’t be throwing fish on stage, mate. I’ve seen a lot worse than this sh**. Alright?”

Liam reached out to Noel on Twitter.
In a new tweet this week aimed at his guitarist brother, 45 year old Liam wrote: “I forgive you now let's get the BIG O back together”. Fans of Oasis will be seeing Liam’s communique as a lifeline for a possible Oasis reunion.
Next summer will mark the 10th anniversary of the legendary band’s demise, which came after a bust-up backstage before a festival date in France in which Liam reportedly broke his brother’s guitar.

If anything gets him down, he knows who to turn to.
Music as therapy is not a novel idea. Indeed, for some people it is the only thing that can help them cope with day to day mental struggles. For Liam Gallagher, there is one musician in particular who is better than medication when it comes to pulling him out of a depressive state.
Liam Gallagher performs at Latitude 2018
Life hasn't been easy on the Oasis frontman, what with the band that he loved going downhill, a long and bitter feud with his brother Noel Gallagher and a number of relationship breakdowns. But when things really start to get to him, he listens to his favourite artist and everything is miraculously OK again.

Gallagher called out his brother for not keeping the faith.
Liam Gallagher has hit out at his brother Noel and branded him “miserable” in the aftermath of England’s exit from the World Cup last night.
The former Oasis frontman took to Twitter to post a series of tweets praising the England team, who got edged out by Croatia 2-1 after extra time in Wednesday night’s World Cup semi-final.
“That England team were biblical and the best thing to come out of this is that we got a proper manger Gareth Southgate you rule”, he wrote.

It's about as sincere as we're going to get.
Liam Gallagher is hardly well known for his charm and diplomacy, but for some reason people still get surprised when he comes out with an offensive comment. His latest remark was in regards to the late Freddie Mercury, and fans (meaning half the music world) are furious at such blasphemy.
Liam Gallagher at Isle of Wight festival
The 45-year-old Oasis frontman took a swipe at the National Treasure when a fan compared the two over Twitter at the weekend. Somebody had written: 'Freddie Mercury - 'Bohemian Rhapsody'. Liam Gallagher - 'Songbird'.' But, unfortunately, Liam wasn't best pleased with this notion.

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.
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.

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.
Liam Gallagher at the Biggest Weekend
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. The last time they met was when Molly was a toddler.
