Liam was born to the Irish couple, Peggy and Thomas Gallagher as the youngest of three siblings. Because of his father’s violently abusive attitude towards them, mother with her three sons moved out when Liam was 10 – his middle brother Noel is also a musician, known as the main songwriter and co-vocalist of Oasis. Liam attended St. Bernard’s RC Primary School, and later enrolled at The Barlow RC High School in Didsbury from which he was suspended for three months for fighting. He didn’t become interested in music until his late teens, when he discovered singing and started listening to bands such as The Stone Roses, The Who and The Beatles. The latter left such a strong impression on Liam that he later claimed that he is John Lennon’s reincarnation.
Liam Gallagher began singing in The Rain, a band formed of a few school friends. They didn’t made any real success until Noel Gallagher joined them as a guitarist and the sole songwriter – and Oasis was founded. Their debut album Definitely Maybe was released in 1994, and along with two hit singles – Supersonic and Life Forever – brought Oasis and Liam international fame. This success provided the basis for Liam Gallagher’s net worth.
Oasis’ second studio album was also a huge success – published in 1995, (What’s the Story) Morning Glory? sold 347,000 copies in the first week and 22 million copies in total. Their third album, from 1997, Be Here Now still holds the record as the fastest selling album in the history of the UK. All these accomplishments dramatically increased Liam’s net worth.
After Oasis split in 2009, when Noel left the band because of his rocky relationship with his brother, Liam started working on a new project. Alongside remaining members of Oasis, Liam wrote new material and formed Beady Eye; in 2011 their first album Different Gear, Still Speeding hit the charts.
In his portfolio so far, Liam Gallagher has nine studio albums with Oasis and Beady Eye, and also some rewards – several Grammy nominations as well as BRIT Awards. In 2010, Liam Gallagher was voted as the greatest frontman of all time in the poll conducted by Q magazine.
Apart from singing, this talented musician also plays guitar, tambourine, harmonica and piano. Besides music, Liam Gallagher has shown-up well in business too – he owns three record labels, Creation, Big Brother and Epic Beady Eye, and he also possesses fashion label Pretty Green. It is certain that these talents, along with fame, have brought Liam a huge amount of money as well.
When it comes to his personal life, it has been followed by the media as much as his music career. Liam Gallagher married Patsy Kensit in 1997, an English actress, singer and model with whom he has a son. From an affair with Lisa Moorish, also an English singer, in 1998, Liam has a daughter. In 2000, a year after his son was born, Parsy and Liam divorced. From his subsequent relationship with Nicole Appleton, Canadian TV presenter, actress and former singer with All Saints, Liam has another son. They married in 2008, but divorced after five years of marriage, costing Liam $7.5 million.
