Liam Gallagher

William John Paul "Liam" Gallagher is an English singer and songwriter. He rose to fame as the lead singer of the rock band Oasis, served as the singer of Beady Eye, before performing as a solo artist after the dissolution of both bands, his dress sense – with a penchant for Parka jackets – and abrasive manner have been the subject of commentary in the press. His debut solo album As You Were, released 6 October 2017, proved to be a critical and commercial success, topping the UK Albums Chart and being certified Platinum. With over 103,000 units sold in its first week it was the ninth fastest-selling debut of the decade in the UK. In 2018, the album was certified Platinum with sales of over 300,000 units in the UK, his second solo album, Why Me? Why Not. Topped the UK charts on 27 September 2019, his tenth chart topper, it is the fastest selling vinyl of 2019. The album's lead single "Shockwave" became one of Gallagher's biggest solo hits, the best selling vinyl single of 2019 in the UK and his first solo single to top a chart in general, reaching number one in Scotland.

William John Paul Gallagher was born to Irish parents Thomas and Peggy Gallagher in Longsight in Manchester before moving to Burnage. He was physically abused by his father as a child, although not to the extent that his older brothers Paul and Noel were, he has said that the abuse affected him and inspired him to become an artist. When Liam was 10, Peggy moved away from Thomas. Although Liam maintained sporadic contact with his father throughout his teens, he has said that their issues remain unresolved. Noel contend that from a young age, Liam went out of his way to antagonise people Noel, with whom he shared a bedroom; the Gallagher brothers were troubled in their mid-teens. He attended St. Bernard's RC Primary School until age 11 The Barlow Roman Catholic High School, he returned to school, where he completed his last term in Spring 1990, famously stating he gained 4 GCSEs on VH1’s Behind the Music in 2000. Liam had no interest in music at a young age, he credits his change in attitude towards music to a blow to the head by a hammer he received from a student from a rival school.

After this incident, he became infatuated with the idea of joining a band. Noel has said that Liam showed little interest in music until his late teens, was better looking than him, a better singer, had better clothes and could wear a parka jacket with more style. Gallagher became confident in his ability to sing and began listening to bands like the Beatles, the Stone Roses, the Who, the Kinks, the Jam, T. Rex. In the process he forged an obsession with former Beatles singer/songwriter John Lennon. Liam would help Noel with his job as a roadie for Inspiral Carpets and worked as a watchman for British Gas; when school friend Paul "Guigsy" McGuigan, invited Gallagher to join his band, The Rain, as a vocalist, he agreed. Liam was the band's co-songwriter, along with guitarist Paul "Bonehead" Arthurs. Noel Gallagher has since mocked this writing partnership, describing them as being "just awful", Liam admitted that "we were shit"; the band only did not get many gigs. It was after one of their rare shows in 1991 at the Manchester Boardwalk that Noel, having returned from touring internationally as a roadie with Inspiral Carpets, saw them perform.

In 1993, Oasis played a four-song setlist at Glasgow's famous King Tut's Wah Wah Hut, where Alan McGee of Creation Records discovered them and signed them on for a six-record deal. In late 1993 and'94, the band recorded the album Definitely Maybe, which released on 28 August 1994, went on to become the fastest-selling British debut album ever. Liam was praised for his vocal contributions to the album, his presence made Oasis a popular live act. Critics cited influences from The Beatles and Sex Pistols. Liam's attitude garnered attention from the British tabloid press, which ran stories concerning his alleged drug use and behaviour. In 1997, Definitely Maybe was named the 14th-greatest album of all time in a'Music of the Millennium' poll conducted by HMV, Channel 4, The Guardian and Classic FM. In Channel 4's'100 Greatest Albums' countdown in 2005, the album was placed at number 6. In 2006, NME placed the album third in a list of the greatest British albums behind The Stone Roses' self-titled debut album and The Smiths' The Queen Is Dead.

In a 2006 British poll run by NME and the book of British Hit Singles and Albums, Definitely Maybe was voted the best album of all time with The Beatles' Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band finishing second and Revolver third. Q Magazine placed it at number five on their greatest albums of all-time list in 2006, in that same year NME hailed it as the greatest album of all time. Morning Glory? was more successful, becoming the third-best selling album in British history. Around this time, Oasis became embroiled in a well documented media-fuelled feud with fellow Britpop band Blur; the differing styles of the bands now leading the Britpop movement – Oasis a working class, northern band and Blur a middle class, southern band – made the media perceive them as natural rivals. In August 1995, Blur and Oasis released new singles on
