The Manchester icon follows in the footsteps of his brother Noel Gallagher, Ian Brown, Paul Weller and The Clash among others.
2018’s Godlike Genius has been announced for the VO5 NME Awards 2018 and it’s Liam Gallagher.
On February 14th Liam will pick up his award at the Brixton Academy in London.
NME Editor in Chief Mike Williams said: “Every once in a while you’re faced with a decision that you might call a total no-brainer. Giving Liam Gallagher the 2018 Godlike Genius award falls into that category.
Through his history, the tunes, the swagger and the sense of humour, Liam is one of the most iconic rock stars of all time. He’s a frontman who knows the job description – look cool, belt it out, be totally Godlike – and I can’t wait to see him take his rightful place on the throne in Brixton in February”
Liam on winning the award said “I wanna thank the NME for their Godlike Genius award. It’s about f**king time as far as I’m concerned.”
