William John Paul "Liam" Gallagher (born 21 September 1972) is an English musician, singer, and
songwriter. He gained fame as the lead singer of rock band Oasis, and later as the singer of Beady
Eye. His erratic behaviour, distinctive singing style, and abrasive attitude have been the subject of
commentary in the press; he remains one of the most recognisable figures in modern British music.
Although his older brother Noel wrote the majority of Oasis' songs, Liam penned the singles
"Songbird" and "I'm Outta Time", along with a string of album tracks and B-sides. Noel departed
Oasis in 2009 and formed Noel Gallagher's High Flying Birds, while Gallagher continued with the
former members of Oasis under the Beady Eye name until they disbanded in 2014.
Gallagher was voted the greatest frontman of all time in a 2010 reader poll by Q magazine.
