Liam Gallagher’s Biography:
Liam is the youngest son of Peggy and Thomas Gallagher. He was born on 21 September 1972 in the Long sight area of Manchester, England.
Liam had to face difficulties in his childhood. He was occasionally abused. As a result, he used to remain sad and unhappy. In his childhood, he was not attracted to music . Meanwhile, Liam’s mother decided to live without his father. When Liam was just 10, she settled in a different house along with her other children. This was the transition period in Liam’s life. He started to listen the sonorous music of the rock bands like Beatles, The Who, and The Stone Roses. Therefore, he was admitted to St. Bernard R.C.Primary School and later he received his higher education from Barlow Roman Catholic High School, Didsbury, Manchester, England.
When he was 16, he was expelled from school because he messed up with one of his classmates. He had to remain outside the school for 3 months. After that, he joined the school again. In the meantime, he started to manifest his interest in music. As a result, he thought of joining a band called ‘ The Rain.’ In the beginning, the band consisted of only 4 members-Liam, the lead singer, Paul Arthur, the guitarist, and Paul MacGuigan, the bass guitarist. After that, Noel Gallagher, his older brother joined the band as the lead guitarist.
In 1991 they renamed their band The Rain as Oasis. Their music album ‘Definitely May Be…’ was a huge success. Meanwhile, the term ‘Britpop’ came into existence. Britpop was actually British pop music which was considered as a reaction against American grunge. As a result, this genre was popularized by the bands like Blur, Oasis, Suede, and Pulp. Suede and Pulp did not carry on further but Oasis produced some musical hit albums in the same genre. Their album (‘What’s the Story ‘ ) Morning Glory? (2nd October 1995) was a contemporary hit studio album.
In the same year, Blur released their album ‘ Country House ‘, and another song album ‘Roll with It’ was released by Oasis. This resulted in the rivalry between the two bands. Blur managed to hold the 1st position whereas Oasis remained in the second position. However, Oasis received the recognition of the public in general. In the meantime, the two important members of the Oasis band decided to leave the group. Naturally, their decision just before the release of ‘Standing on The Shoulder of Giants’ (1999) upset the other members. The empty space, however, was soon filled by Gem Archer, the heavy guitarist, and the former Ride guitarist.
In 2004 Alan White (joined back in the year 1998), the drummer of the band left the team but Zak Starkey and Sharrock joined the team soon. After that, Oasis released ‘Heathen Chemistry ‘ (2002), ‘Don’t Believe the Truth ‘(2005), and ‘Dig out Your Soul ‘ (2008) respectively. In 2009 Noel Gallagher, Liam’s elder brother left the band because of maladjustment.
The remaining members of started to create another band called ‘Beady Eye’.Beady Eye released two albums- ‘Different Gear ‘, ‘Still Speeding ‘ (In 2011).In 2013 they released ‘BE’ but the band discontinued from October 2014. Therefore, in 2017 Liam decided to start his solo career. His first solo hit album was ‘As You Were’.It was one of the fastest-selling albums in the U.K.(103000 units sold within a week).His second album ‘ Why Me? Why Not? (2019)’ also proved successful.
