Liam Gallagher
Oasis and Beady Eye frontman Liam Gallagher comfortably claimed first place out polling second place Freddie Mercury two to one to officially claim Xfm's Greatest Frontman Of All Time.

Xfm's Steve Harris called Liam to present the news. Not surprisingly, he thought it was the right result: "Greatest frontman? I knew that anyway! There's not many of us about. There are a lot of pretenders out there. But I'd like to thank everybody for voting and stuff. Nice one."

Asked if he ever entertained the thought of being a guitarist or other sideman, Liam said: "I don't think I could handle the bass guitar, but I could see myself down the line on guitar and I can see myself smashing the kit up. But but singing is all I can do. It's always been about the vocal for me, man. If you're a good looking fucker like me, you've got to be down the front, haven't you?"

And how did Liam come up with his trademark hands-behind-the-back stance? "If I hold the microphone stand, I feel a bit weak and a bit singerish," he explained. "But when I put my hands behind my back I feel more power. it feels like it's going to go off at any minute.
