LIAM GALLAGHER: THE BIGGEST WEEKEND (2018)
William John Paul Gallagher (born 21 September 1972) is an English singer and songwriter. He achieved fame as the lead singer 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.
Gallagher's debut solo album, As You Were, proved to be a critical and commercial success. It topped the UK Albums Chart and was the ninth fastest-selling debut album of the 2010s in the UK, with over 103,000 units sold in its first week. In 2018, the album was certified Platinum with over 300,000 units sold in the UK. His second album, Why Me? Why Not, received mostly positive reviews and topped the UK charts upon its release in September 2019. This made it his tenth chart-topping album including eight with Oasis, and it also became the fastest-selling vinyl of 2019.
One of the most recognisable figures in music, Gallagher is noted for his distinctive singing style and his outspoken, brash, and abrasive personality. His attitude during Oasis' commercial peak in the mid-1990s garnered much attention from the British tabloids, which often ran stories concerning his drug use and destructive behaviour. In March 2010, he was voted the greatest frontman of all time in a reader poll by Q magazine. In 2019, he received the MTV Europe Music Award for "Rock Icon". (01:11:00)
