Liam Gallagher Receives NME’s “Godlike Genius” Award

On February 14, the NME Awards VO5 NME Awards 2018 were honored, and this year’s Godlike Genius award was for nothing more, nothing less than Liam Gallagher.


Who presented the award was the editor-in-chief of the magazine, Mike Williams, who made a special call to the winner.

No one has appeared more often on the NME cover than this year’s Godlike. No one else had any words written by NME. No one has taken more pictures taken by NME. And when you think this is a magazine that for 66 years wrote about the Beatles, The Rolling Stones and The Smiths, and all the other legendary bands and artists the world has seen, it just proves how totally iconic Liam Gallagher It is.

Climbing onto the stage to receive the award, Liam dedicated him to the “army of songwriters, past and present” in a clear reference to his brother, Noel Gallagher. And he also dedicated his fans, which he calls “Parka Monkeys”, another reference to his brother, who had ironically nicknamed Liam’s fans this way.

I'm a Brazilian journalist who always loved Classic Rock and Heavy Metal music. That passion inspired me to create Rock and Roll Garage over 6 years ago. Music has always been a part of my life, helping me through tough times and being a support to celebrate the good ones. When I became a journalist, I knew I wanted to write about my passions. After graduating in journalism from the Pontifical Catholic University of Minas Gerais, I pursued a postgraduate degree in digital communication at the same institution. The studies and experience in the field helped me improve the website and always bring the best of classic rock to the world! MTB: 0021377/MG
