Motormouth Mancunian Liam G has been one of music's most outspoken and hilarious protagonists for more than two decades now. Here are 60 of his most ludicrous musings, on Blur, Noel and everything in between.

60On running over Noel...

“Bastard! That taxi missed! If I was driving I would have fucking had you, man.”

59On modelling his own fashion collection...

“No fucking chance!”

58On Jack White...

“The White Stripes? Fooking rubbish. School ties? At the age of 24? Fooking hell.”

57On setting a good example...

"I don't go out and get wasted. I've got kids and they're getting to that age when they're like, 'How come you get to lie in bed all day and I've got to go to school?'"

56On celebrity mates...

"Our kid hangs around with all these strange people with long hair - Russell Brand sorts - and that's just not my cup of tea."

55On getting vitamin injections...

“Here you go, eat your heart out Pete Doherty, you crackhead! That whinger!”

54On his stage demeanour...

"I refuse to dance. And I can't dance anyway. I'm not in a band for that."

53On Keith Richards...

“He's jealous and senile and not getting enough fucking meat pies.”

52On going out to gigs...

“Fuck that. What’s the point? The bands are all shit, aren’t they? Go out to socialise and have some student stand on your fucking shoes?”

51On his morning regime...

“I’m up at 6am, me. I’ve got an alarm call and everything. It’s like being in the fookin’ army.”
