They were big in the UK but only so-so in the world, Imagine Dragons are a bigger world wide band than Oasis were. 

Yeah this is a weird statement. Whats the Story did 22 million sales world wide with 4 million of them being in the UK/ 3 million being in the US. Imagine Dragons have under 11 million album sales world wide...

Oasis don't even make the biggest selling artist list on wiki whilst Imagine Dragons have in the era of where you don't sale music anymore.

I agree with the "so-so" part although I'll refrain from commenting on Imagine Dragons.  Oasis is just some band from forever-ago in the US.

They were a proper phenomenon culturally, especially 96-97 up to Be Here Now, which kinda burst the bubble a bit.

I genuinely recall Liam getting a haircut making the front pages of the tabloids.

Oasis were synonymous with Brit pop and once Be here now came out that was the end of Brit pop. Shame really, Listening to Noel's remaster of "Do you know what I mean?" released that the album had potential but the brothers needed a break before their 3rd.

They needed a break from the gak for sure. Whole album is one long ode to excessive cocaine use.

Beady Eye's second album was far better than anything Liam has produced solo. Big fan of this one in particular -

 

I think BE was decent, looking back. Some stinkers but some standouts, that song included.

I think that Why Me? Why Not is better though. Singles like Once and One Of Us are top drawer. I think that album might be actually what cemented him as a solo artist - I feel like people actually talked about songs on this one rather than just putting up with them (like Wall of Glass). All You're Dreaming Of isn't on any album but might be one of the best songs he's done ever.

I could see him headlining Glastonbury solo in this decade. He's gonna stay at this level for a couple of albums more and the Oasis talk will fade away for a while. And it'll probably go down well, the announcement and the performance.

Liam's live vocals are also great at the moment, the best he's been for years and years. This TRNSMT set from last year was absolutely killer.

His wife's got him in shape, cleaned him up, made him take care of himself and he's sorting his voice out – it's really working. Having a decent, reliable live show now is really helping his brand and being able to sell tickets.

I've seen Oasis on a number of occasions going back to about 95. The last time was at the Ethiad where they were terrible, his voice was terrible. I said i wouldnt seem him / them again but did end up drunkenly watching him at Glastonbury but agree, his voice is much better there

Definitely sounds in fine voice there, his backing band seem to have improved too. Saw him support the Stones in London when he was first coming back as a solo artist and his band sounded terrible. Like a third rate Oasis tribute act.

Before I came to the UK I had no idea that Liam Gallagher still had a career, it's wild how he can be absolutely massive in the UK and playing tiny theatres on tiny tours in North America. Most lad-rock bands out of the UK seem to have similar fates. Nothing against the genre, I just find it fascinating how much more popular it is in the UK than in North America.

At this point Noasis is probably bigger in the US since we all saw that story about people getting snowed-into the pub.

Oasis - the only band that on two occasions I have bought albums in the optimism that it may actually be ok this time, started to listen to a couple of tracks, gave up and never finished.

Yeah I feel like a have to hand in my Brit card sometimes cus I actively avoid anything with a Gallagher brother involved.
