William John Paul 'Liam' Gallagher (born 21 September 1972) is an English musician and singer-songwriter, formerly the frontman of the rock band Oasis and currently of the band Beady Eye. Gallagher's 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 elder brother Noel Gallagher wrote the majority of Oasis's songs, Liam has penned the singles 'Songbird' and 'I'm Outta Time', along with a string of album tracks and B-sides. Since Noel's departure from Oasis in August 2009, Liam has said he will continue making music with ex-Oasis members Gem Archer, Andy Bell, drummer Chris Sharrock, recording under the band name Beady Eye. Gallagher was born in Burnage, Manchester, and is the third and youngest child of Irish parents Thomas and Peggy Gallagher.
