Liam Gallagher says Oasis film is 'biblical'

Liam Gallagher has proclaimed the upcoming Oasis documentary is "biblical".

The 'Some Might Say' band's former frontman has watched a first edit of the film - which has been made by the team behind Amy Winehouse doc 'Amy' - and admits he couldn't be happier with it.

Taking to his Twitter account, he posted: "Just seen the 1st cut of the OASIS film BIBLICAL what ever happened to my ROCKNROLL LG x (sic)"

Liam, 43, has given numerous interviews for the film as has his older brother Noel Gallagher and other band members and people who were integral to the Manchester group's incredible rise to become the biggest band in the world just a couple of years after the release of their debut album 'Definitely Maybe' in 1994 - the fastest-selling debut LP in British music history

The film has been made by James Gay-Rees of production company On The Corner, executive director Asif Kapadia and director Mat Whitecross.

The movie focuses on the band's formation in 1991 and journey to their historic concerts at Knebworth Park in 1996 at which they played to 250,000 people following the runaway success of their second LP '(What's the Story) Morning Glory?', which went on to sell over 20 million copies worldwide.

At the time, 2.6 million people applied for tickets for the concerts, and the band could have played 20 sold out nights at the venue.

Noel, 48, previously revealed there was lots of footage collected from Oasis' tours which couldn't be used because of the hellraising antics captured.

The guitarist said: "We have all this footage from behind the scenes leading up to the gigs, most of which can't be used as there's just monstrous drug taking."
