Liam Gallagher to record Beatles soundtrack
Liam Gallagher's new band is going to record the soundtrack to his Beatles film.
The former Oasis frontman has secured the screen rights to Apple's former press officer Richard DiLello's 1972 memoirs, which details the band's final years between 1967 and 1970 and their eventual demise.
Although the 'I'm Outta Time' singer can use the Fab Four's original recordings to provide the movie's music he has decided to re-record the selected tracks with his other ex-Oasis bandmates who make up his new group.
Speaking at the Cannes Film Festival, Liam said: "We're going to do it. My new band is going to do the soundtrack. We can re-create the sound like that.
"I think it would be more exciting if you had a sound that reminds you of that era, instead of the obvious 'Let It Be' and the other stuff."
Although the 37-year-old rocker is excited about his first foray into film, he has no plans to become a movie mogul and he insists he won't star in his own movie because he's "too good looking".
Liam - who is bringing the project to life with his new production company In 1 and producer Andrew Eaton of Revolution Films - quipped: "I'm doing this one thing and then that's it. I'm not gonna be doing films about whales or unkempt eyebrows.
"I'm going to do this one thing because I like it, and I've got the opportunity to do it, and Andrew's going to make it happen, and that's it."
In the book, 'The Longest Cocktail Party: An Insider's Diary Of The Beatles, Their Million Dollar Apple Empire And Its Wild Rise And Fall', DiLello gives his take on the business and personal problems which drove the group apart.
It gives his account of "stoned conversations" which took place at the office's open bar and the movie will cover the years from when rock 'n' roll moved on from its carefree days to being controlled by multinational corporations.Posted on 17 May 2010 16:30 to category : Music News
