Liam Gallagher isn’t just known as a musician, singer, and songwriter – he’s also not afraid to give a forthright opinion or two, or failing that some creative insults. All in all he’s an absolute legend, ‘godlike’ some have said. Yeah, we’re on board with that.

Well, today marks LG’s 46th birthday so we asked what better way to celebrate than to look back at some of the moments that have made the past 20 odd years, amazing.

These are (in our opinion) 5 of Liam Gallagher’s greatest moments. Happy birthday rkid.

When he recorded ‘Champagne Supernova’ in one perfect take

If anyone wants to argue that Liam can’t sing, show them this video. In an exclusive clip from the 2016 Oasis documentary, Supersonic, LG records the vocals for ‘Champagne Supernova’ in one flawless take. It’s the same spine-tingling version you hear on the record, but it’s in this totally isolated recording booth that you really see Gallagher’s effortless talent.

When he couldn’t accept a Brit Award without ripping into Blur

The year was 1996, and Chris Evans was presenting the Brits. Oasis won the award for Best Music Video for ‘Wonderwall’, and the boys were more than happy to jump onstage and accept the accolade. But not before they’d had a go at their arch-rivals, Blur.

“I’d like to thank all the fans, all the people who make us what we are,” said Liam, before launching into song.

All the people, so many people/And they all walk hand in hand, hand in hand through their sh**e life.”

When Oasis headlined Glastonbury 1995 and Liam performed his best ever ‘Slide Away’ with a tambourine around his neck

Oasis headlined Glasto in 1995. I was only 3 years old, so I couldn’t make it, but I hear it was very good.

When he went back home to play the One Love Manchester concert and united the nation in solidarity.

Liam Gallagher really loves ripping into Chris Martin. In 2006 he said he looked like a “geography teacher”. In 2016, he compared him to a vicar and said he looked like he was starring in The Tweenies. But he buried the hatchet when it mattered. After the devastating attack during an Ariana Grande concert at Manchester Arena in May 2017, Gallagher headed back home to play ‘Live Forever’ with Coldplay. Two less alike rockstars are hard to imagine, but together they united the nation in solidarity and hope.

He constantly schools everyone on how to do Twitter.

Whether making totally non-threatening demands that his parkas are returned, or simply announcing: “PUB”, Liam’s Twitter skills put even the most skilled social media gurus to shame. Signing each one off with a simple “As you were LG x”, Twitter captures those rare moments of affection from the Godlike Genius. Of course, it’s also where he most rips into brother Noel, famously the place of origin for his “potato” attack.

 

Happy Birthday LG.
