Liam Gallagher has said he has no time for Bob Dylan, dismissing the folk legend as "a miserable cunt."

Speaking to The Times, the Beady Eye frontman responded to a question about whether he had celebrated Dylan's 70th birthday by saying: "I know all about him and that, but he’s a bit of a miserable cunt as far as I’m concerned. I like that tune he did 'Lay Lady Lay'. People go nuts for him, but he doesn’t really do it for me."

The singer added that he wasn't keen on acts from the 1960s and 1970s making comebacks at the summer festivals, saying of them: "All those fuckers playing their greatest hits are shitbags."



Gallagher also admitted that he doesn't really listen to new music, saying: "There’s nothing new I want to listen to. I’m not interested. I don’t listen to things, because you know what? I’m living in the moment. It’s like, that was a great fucking moment. Now get over it. There’ll be another one tomorrow."

He did admit though that he was a fan of Miles Kane, responding to a question over whether there was anyone new he liked, he said: "Miles Kane’s good. He’s young, he’s a great guitarist, and he seems like he’s having fun."

The article appears in this Saturday's edition of The Times.
