It was exactly 20 years ago this week that Liam Gallagher and his Oasis bandmates burst on to the music scene with their iconic debut album, Definitely Maybe.
But Liam looked to have aged hardly a day when we spied him returning to home turf on Friday night.
Burnage-born Liam, 41, was certainly rocking a vintage Oasis look - wearing his signature parka jacket while his hair has returned to the fringed style that many will recall from his 90s heyday.
And the Live Forever star even gave our snapper a trademark Rock 'n' Roll star 'salute', shall we say, as he left the Radisson Edwardian Blu Hotel in the city centre.
Tomorrow marks the official 20th anniversary of the release of Definitely Maybe, Oasis' seminal work, which has prompted a 'remastered' reissue from the now defunct band's former record label.

But Liam, now frontman of band Beady Eye, is unlikely to be getting too nostalgic about it.
For after the re-release was announced, he urged fans NOT to buy it.
He said on his Twitter account at the time: "How can you remaster something that's already mastered. Don't buy into it. Let it be."
Many fans had believed the 20th anniversary might prompt a reunion between warring Gallagher brothers Liam and Noel, but sadly that has yet to transpire.
Liam's return home to Manchester on the eve of the anniversary appears to be coincidental - as it is understood he's actually come home to watch his beloved Manchester City play at the Etihad Stadium on Saturday against Stoke City.
We'd love to be a fly on the wall at the Rad Ed over breakfast in the morning - as those Stoke players appear to have checked in to the same hotel as the Mad For It Blues fan.
