Despite his limited abilities, Liam Gallagher revealed his secret to becoming an effective frontman.
Gallagher first appeared as the lead vocalist of Oasis in 1991 before going solo. After leaving the band in 2009, he fronted Beady Eye for five years. Although he has had a successful solo career, Gallagher is best known as the legendary frontman of the rock bands above.
In a recent interview with Far Out Magazine, the singer admitted to having limited musical ability. Despite this, he revealed that he became a rock ‘n’ roll singer on his own.
“I class myself as a rock ‘n’ roll singer who writes the odd tune now and again. And that is it. I’m not going out saying I’m Bob Dylan. Ideally, you want to do it yourself, but I can’t write those fucking big songs. I’m limited. My verses are up there, but I just can’t do that next bit.”
Gallagher works in Oasis with his brother Noel. However, he was chastised for not contributing much to the songwriting process.
The band agreed that Noel would provide the songs and the other Gallagher would complete the mix.
In addition to his initial statement, he told “Absolute Radio” Dave Berry that having passion would propel any aspiring frontman to fame.
He stated that no one should be concerned about being in tune or out of tune because punk rock is all about “attitude.” Instead of whimpering around the microphone, he encouraged everyone to participate by spitting all over it while singing.
Although he found love in rock music, Gallagher encountered a stumbling block when his brother left Oasis in 1994 after bombarding him with insults.
One year later, journalist John Harris interviewed the brothers and released the conversation on vinyl and CD. Due to the disruption he caused, Noel once hit Liam in the head with a cricket bat. Following that, the bat was auctioned off.
Gallagher missed his appearance with Oasis on MTV Unplugged at the Royal Festival Hall in 1996. Nonetheless, Noel led them and chose not to pass up the opportunity.
Oasis called it quits after more than a decade.
