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.

The endless sibling feuding in the press between former Oasis stars Noel and Liam Gallagher has kept the media entertained for over twenty years.

Oasis Liam Gallagher Noel Gallagher

Liam Gallagher just hinted at something that all Oasis fans have been desperate to hear for nearly a decade, suggesting that he might reconcile with his brother Noel to reunite the band for the re-opening of Manchester Arena next month.

The 21,000 capacity venue is due to re-open its doors in the coming weeks, with a star-studded benefit concert including Pixie Lott, Courteeners and Blossoms on September 9th to mark the official re-opening after the venue underwent refurbishment following the devastating terrorist attack back in May that claimed the lives of 22 fans at an Ariana Grande show.

Noel Gallagher’s solo project, The High Flying Birds, are topping the bill on the night, but Oasis fans quizzed his younger brother on why he wasn’t playing the show. The former Oasis frontman tweeted on Saturday (August 19th) that he could still appear at the gig - if he was asked.

If there's one thing you can say about Liam Gallagher, it's that he's not afraid to say exactly what's on his mind, even if he takes down a chat-show host in the process. As it turns out though, James Corden isn't the only celebrity the former Oasis star has got a problem with.

Liam Gallagher has apologised to angry fans after he walked off stage at the Lollapalooza Festival less than 20 minutes into his set, blaming the incident on “vocal issues”.

The former Oasis frontman was performing on Thursday (August 3rd) at the annual music fest in Chicago’s Grant Park when, just 19 minutes and three-and-a-bit songs into his set, he simply stopped singing and walked off the stage, according to news site Globo.

His bemused backing band finished the song they were playing, a new solo track called ‘Greedy Soul’, and followed him off. The crowd started jeering when, a few minutes after that, the band’s roadies started packing up their kit with no explanation as to what had happened.

He might be 44-years-old, but apparently 16 years of a rock 'n' roll lifestyle hasn't taken much of a toll on Liam Gallagher's youthful looks. In fact, he was asked to provide ID when he tried to buy cigarettes in a shop recently, because the cashier didn't believe he was over 21.
