Tonight, readers, he was a rock’n’roll star. Obviously, he’s our foremost rock’n’roll star every other night of the year – which is exactly why Liam Gallagher has, at long last, been named Godlike Genius at this year V05 NME Awards at the 02 Brixton Academy. He stormed out in his trademark parka – having having used his acceptance speech to thank the “parka monkeys” that have supported him for all these years, along with his mum and “army of songwriters, past and present” – before he delivered a roaring set that drew on Platinum new album ‘As You Were’ and, of course, the Oasis bangers we longed to get in our earholes.
Liam Gallagher was absolutely Godlike at the VO5 NME Awards (obviously)
As you were (and as you'd expect)
He opened with 'Rock'N'Roll Star', which he recently told NME is currently his favourite Oasis song to perform live. Says it all, really, doesn't it? Jordan Hughes/NME
At one point during the song, as we all bellowed, "Toniiiiiight I'm a rock 'n' roll star" back at him, he snarled, "Yeah, you fucking are." Jordan Hughes/NME
And then he belted out 'Morning Glory' as loads of us stood on our seats and bawled along to every single word. Jordan Hughes/NME
