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.

Liam Gallagher's Voice Sounds "Healthier" For Cutting Back On Smoking And Boozing


Liam Gallagher

For years a dedicated subscriber to the sex, drugs and rock’n’roll mythology, former Oasis frontman Liam Gallagher has revealed how his voice has taken on a “healthier” sound now that he’s started to cut back on cigarettes and alcohol.

Speaking during a new interview with Sirius XM in America, the 46 year old singer told of how he’s beginning to find a better balance regarding his vices of smoking and boozing, but that it’s affecting the legendary gravelly tone of his vocals.

“I know for a fact when I have not had cigarettes and not drank and have been behaving myself I sound a bit square. And I do not like that. I like to sound a bit rough and have a bit of character,” he explained, but hastily adding that he’s not about to start living like a monk.

A source told The Sun on Thursday (August 30th): “Noel has now said there’s no chance of a reunion happening now. He doesn’t want to take to the stage with Liam after what he’s done.”

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?”
