Oasis’ Noel Gallagher Recalls The Time Liam Gallagher Was At His Absolute Peak
Oasis guitarist Noel Gallagher talked about the upcoming Oasis documentary during a recent appearance on Absolute Radio.
After releasing the debut album in 1994, ‘Definitely Maybe,’ Oasis started to promote the recording by going out to the tours. In 1996, they made record-breaking shows at Knebworth.
The band wanted to immortalize these moments in Knebworth, especially after the success of the documentaries about rock musicians and bands, such as ‘KISStory’ and ‘Bohemian Rhapsody.’ Three days ago, Oasis announced that they will release a new documentary named ‘Oasis Knebworth 1996’ on September 23 and released a teaser of the biopic.
While talking about the documentary in a recent conversation, Noel also revealed that all the band members, especially the singer Liam Gallagher, were at their peak during this period. Furthermore, Noel mentioned that there was no internet or cellphones at that time, which is one of the reasons why the Knebworth shows were the greatest ones, and they still make him emotional while watching.
Noel Gallagher on the upcoming documentary:
“When you see this documentary, it’s the band that is at its absolute peak, Liam is at his absolute peak, it’s a real snapshot of a long-gone era…
A quarter of a million people, not a single mobile phone, no internet, in the moment, with the band, everybody is singing at the top of their lungs, very young crowd… You kind of think, ‘Wow, the 90s…’
It was the last great decade in music. When people see this film, I got quite emotional watching it just because of what we’ve lost. But it’s a great document of a great band and great music.”
