The Beatles, Led Zeppelin, The Rolling Stones, The Who, Pink Floyd, The Clash, Queen, Deep Purple, The Kinks, The Sex Pistols…..the list goes on. What do all these have in common? They are all some of the most influential and successful British Bands EVER! All are known for their unique styles in their music and on stage. Another one of those bands, a little more recent is OASIS. You either love em or hate em. No matter what you think of them though, they are one of the most successful bands ever to exist.
OASIS are known for their great lyrics in music, their ‘I don’t give a Sh*t what people think of us’ attitude. Frontman Liam Gallagher has always had a particular style with not only his voice, but his stage presence. Something I have always loved about Liam is his stance when he sings. He doesn’t stand straight up, directly into the Microphone, he has more of a swagger and laid back approach to it. Which I like, and he has become iconic for.
The band is originally from Manchester, which is a city known for producing great artists who have made a big name of themselves throughout their careers. Manchester this weekend have been in the party spirits as Manchester City Soccer club won the league title which forced Manchester United to finish second. If you’re not a sports fan, you probably don’t care, but this is a big deal for Soccer and Manchester in General. Liam Gallagher and the Oasis boys have always been big followers of the City Club.
I was listening to some OASIS music this afternoon, and was inspired to do a Liam Gallagher style photo to blog. Nothing special, just my way of paying homage to an amazing band, amazing city and celebrating the other talented names who have come out of this country to take on the world with their music!
