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.

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.

Noel Gallagher Doesn't Need To Be Stadium Rocker

Noel Gallagher doesn't need to be a stadium rocker anymore because he has enough money.

The 50-year-old rocker thinks he's worked enough over the years to earn his cash so that he doesn't need to sell out big arena tours and he's convinced it would be ''undignified'' if he did.

Speaking to Music Feeds, he said: ''I've conquered the world enough, I've got enough money. In fact, I've got too much fucking money. Do you want some? I'll send you some. How much do you want? I don't need any more glory. I don't need to be a stadium rocker anymore - I did it when I was in my twenties and thirties and forties, and I was good at it. I don't particularly want to be a stadium rocker when I'm 50. I think it's undignified.''

Noel Gallagher's Voice Improved


Noel Gallagher Liam Gallagher

Noel Gallagher thinks his voice has improved since he quit smoking.

The 50-year-old former Oasis guitarist is releasing his third album with his band High Flying Birds on Friday (24.11.17), and has said that whilst his voice has naturally gotten better as he's aged, he believes putting down the cigarettes has also had an effect on his vocals.

When asked if he thinks being older has improved his voice, he said: ''Yeah, Paul Weller says that his voice is getting better, too. I gave up smoking recently. That might have something to do with it, but I think mine has been getting better. I'm more expressive, and I suppose the more solo albums that you make, you should be getting better.''

Noel Gallagher Says Liam Has "Legitimised" Online Hate Directed At His Family


Noel Gallagher Liam Gallagher

Noel Gallagher has explained that the primary reason why he doesn’t foresee an Oasis reunion is that his younger brother Liam has “legitimised” online abuse being directed toward his family.

Characterised by sibling feuding that increasingly became more interesting than their actual music as their career progressed, Oasis split in 2009. Liam and Noel have not spoken to each other since, but their war of words has continued in the press and latterly via social media, with Liam regularly taking digs at his older brother on Twitter.

50 year old Noel, about to release his third solo album later this month, doesn’t have any social media platforms, and explained to BBC Radio 4’s ‘Front Row’ programme that his resistance to Twitter and the like is because of the abuse he and his family receive – and that’s partly down to Liam’s influence.
