The first official clip of Liam Gallagher‘s new documentary As It Was has been unveiled. Check it out below.
Due to hit cinemas on June 7, the film from the former Oasis and Beady Eye frontman turned solo star give unprecedented on stage and backstage access to a camera crew to tell his story during his last headline tour for debut album ‘As You Were‘.
According the synopsis, As It Was “tells the honest and emotional story of how one of the most electrifying rock’n’roll frontmen went from the dizzying heights of his champagne supernova years in Oasis to living on the edge, ostracised and lost in the musical wilderness of booze, notoriety and bitter legal battles. Starting again alone, stripped bare and with nowhere to hide, Liam risks everything to make the greatest comeback of all time.”
“Starting again alone, stripped bare and with nowhere to hide, Liam risks everything to make the greatest comeback of all time.”
“I’m not doing this to be more famous, I’m fucking famous enough – you know what I mean,” says Gallagher in the first clip. “I’m not doing it for the money. I joined a band because I love music. “I know how fucking great I am, and I know how shit I am.
“It’s part of fucking staying alive man; being here, not being a casualty. Not letting the bastards get you down when all the bastards who have been sitting there over the last 10 years ‘Ah, he’s definitely going to be dead now, he’s going to blow his fucking brains out or have a drug overdose’.”
He adds: “They’ve got all those press headlines waiting, but I don’t think it’s gonna happen lads. I’m gonna stick it out.”
The film made headlines earlier this year when Gallagher claimed that brother Noel plans to sue him if he includes any footage of his Oasis days in a forthcoming documentary – taking another gig at him for not attending the ‘One Love Manchester’ tribute show.
Meanwhile, Liam Gallagher is set to release his second solo album this year, as well as making a main stage appearance at Glastonbury festival.
