Liam Gallagher Is The Greatest Frontman In Rock History

So say the readers of Q Magazine, anyway. Having never made it through a whole Oasis song, I'm in no position to judge. Any thoughts?

Well I'm British but I wouldn't agree with this at all. Doesn't he just stand still when he's singing? That's no kind of behaviour for a frontman.

Neither does LG nowadays. Anyway, when Peter Kay is calling someone a "knobhead"... ah blah blah blah blah etc etc

The only way this "greatest frontman" vote could be even remotely accurate would be if Q readers hadn't listened to any music after 1994 oh wait...

I am a britisher over 30, and am drunk sometimes. I have not so much looked at a copy of "Q" for over a decade, possibly 15 years.

Liam Gallagher is not the greatest frontman in Rock History, he is a knob. Oasis are a crock of shit.

The last issue I read was the 100th edition, which co-incidentally I unearthed during some clearing out today. I have no reason to believe that this month's Q contains any significantly different material.

I bought it for a little while when it first started, I don't recall it ever being "thinking man's" in any way whatsoever, it was more like patrick bateman's music magazine.

Q magazine, that is. I used to have the first five issues, which are apparently worth shitloads of money (TO L4YM0RZ) but the roof leaked, and they got all waterlogged.

I also saw Patti Smith tonight, who at 64yo is a better, more compelling frontperson than Liam Gallagher ever has been or ever will be.

Yes - although how a band can continue after splitting with the songwriter who wrote all of their hits?

black jeans stained by (snoball), Thursday, 25 March 2010 23:56 (seven years ago) Permalink

I witnessed Oasis's Unplugged set that Noel famous sang in place of Liam. While the music still sounded like owlshit, I barely noticed a difference in the quality of vocals. In fact I thought Noel was better.

This apparently=best frontman evar.

Immediately after the Earth solidified, Immanuel and God created the various forms of mineral, plant and animal life. Then shortly thereafter they created the first physical bodies for human beings on Earth, which means this happened approximately 5 billion years ago.

Actually, I had the phrasing wrong. The official title bestowed on LG is "Greatest Frontman Of All Time." Don't know if that cuts anyone out who was previously in the running (Bing Crosby, maybe? Frank Sinatra fronted a band at one point before going solo...), but there you go.

My candidate for Greatest (UK-Based) Frontman Of All Time is probably Bruce Dickinson of Iron Maiden. The guy is a fucking showman.

Reference to Q readers not listening to anything post-1994, surely it's the other way around? Whatever his dubious qualities he's the obvious ''rock and roll'' choice esp. amongst the UK contingent. Who else, Chris martin? This is kinda the anti-Mojo poll result.

Anyway this is the same myopic bullshit as when Radiohead won the 1998 Greatest Album Ever poll with their 1997 album.

But y'know, Q and all that. Sorry, Q

Not getting this at all. He's boring to watch, surely a frontman should deport himself in an exciting "rock and roll" manner like, I dunno, Roger Daltrey or someone.

I used to be obsessed with Ultrasound, meeting tiny was one of the highlights of my teenage years.

I started reading through this thread and when I reached the list of the top 20 I had to google who Tom Meighan was, it made me laugh when several pictures of that gormless chumpl from Kasabian came up.

Tommy, who lives in the modest house in Burnage, Manchester, where Liam grew up, was standing in his back garden with blood dripping from his head and back when we first visited him.

A big rock had fallen on him as he was mending a fence. We took him to A&E for treatment but he shrugged off his injury to head for the pub.
