Liam Gallagher Shares the First Trailer for His 'As It Was' Documentary
"I know how fucking great I am, and I know how shit I am"
Published Apr 04, 2019Liam Gallagher is set to get personal in the new documentary Liam Gallagher: As It Was, and for an idea of just how personal, the former Oasis singer is giving us the first film trailer.
As you'll see, the clip shows Gallagher preparing for a seriously massive-looking solo gig in his hometown of Manchester, all the while dropping some extremely quotable lines in a narration.
"I'm not doing this to be more famous, I'm fucking famous enough — you know what I mean," Gallagher says in the trailer's voiceover. "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 doesn't end there either, with Gallagher going on to say: "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.' They've got all those press headlines waiting, but I don't think it's gonna happen lads. I'm gonna stick it out."
Watch the trailer for As It Was play out for yourself below — even if Noel Gallagher isn't at all happy about the film.
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, ostracized 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."
Arriving via Altitude Films, the documentary is out in the U.K. and Ireland on June 7, but so far there is no firm North American premiere date. The film comes in the wake of the news that Liam's clothing brand Pretty Green was going in administration.
He released his debut solo album As You Were in 2017.
