Mike Williams, editor-in-chief of NME, added: “Every once in a while you’re faced with a decision that you might call a total no-brainer. Giving Liam Gallagher the Godlike Genius Award 2018 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.”

Previous winners include The Clash, Paul Weller, The Cure, Noel Gallagher, Manic Street Preachers, New Order & Joy Division, Dave Grohl, Johnny Marr, U2, Ian Brown, Suede, Coldplay, Blondie and last year’s ceremony saw Pet Shop Boys collect the trophy.
