LIAM GALLAGHER IN CONCERT AT GLASTONBURY (2017)
William John Paul Gallagher (born 21 September 1972) is an English singer and songwriter. He achieved fame as the lead singer and frontman of the rock band Oasis from 1991 to 2009, and later fronted the rock band Beady Eye from 2009 to 2014, before starting a solo career in 2017. Oasis had various line-up changes, though Gallagher and his brother Noel remained as the staple members.
Gallagher formed a band called The Rain, which eventually became Oasis, and invited Noel to join them as the lead guitarist. The band's debut album, Definitely Maybe (1994), was a critical and commercial success. Their second album, (What's the Story) Morning Glory? (1995), reached the top of the album charts in many countries, and their third studio album, Be Here Now (1997), became the fastest-selling album in UK chart history. Britpop eventually declined in popularity and Oasis failed to revive it, though all of their subsequent albums topped the UK charts and their final two albums, Don't Believe the Truth (2005) and Dig Out Your Soul (2008) were hailed as being their best efforts in over a decade. In August 2009, following Noel's departure from Oasis, Gallagher and the remaining band members would go on to form Beady Eye, with whom he released two studio albums before they disbanded in 2014.
