VIDEO: Liam Gallagher Documentary ‘As It Was’ Chronicles Former Oasis Frontman’s Remarkable Solo Comeback
2017 Stern Show guest’s rock doc arrives Sept. 13 in select theatersAugust 22, 2019
Liam Gallagher has a lot to say about his life, solo career, and complicated relationship with his brother Noel in the official trailer for “As It Was,” an upcoming documentary about the rock star and past Stern Show guest’s tumultuous transition from Oasis frontman to acclaimed solo artist.
The movie’s first trailer teases an intimate, career-spanning film examining Liam and his brother’s rise to superstardom, the disbanding of Oasis in 2009, and Liam’s resurrection as a solo artist many years later. The Gavin Fitzgerald & Charlie Lightening-directed doc features everything from performance footage to behind-the-scenes looks at Liam’s private life as well as raw conversations with the rocker himself in which he attempts to describe his remarkable comeback in his own words.
“I’m a little bit nervous,” Liam admits at one point (above) before walking into the studio to make a solo record. “This is my last chance to do the thing I love.”
Of course, the rocker didn’t seem all that nervous when visiting the Stern Show studios in 2017 to promote “As You Were,” his debut solo record featuring the single “Wall of Glass.” In addition to performing the tune for Howard and his listeners, Liam got candid about his contentious relationship with his brother but revealed he’d be more than willing to partake in an Oasis reunion.
“Without a doubt. That’s my band, you know what I mean? But we gotta become brothers first,” the younger Gallagher told Howard, adding “People want it, and … I love Oasis, it’s the best thing ever.” Watch a clip from the interview (below).
“Liam: As It Was” opens Sept. 13 in theaters and arrives Oct. 8 on VOD.
