Liam Gallagher wants to tattoo his lyrics to Ian McCulloch's forehead, because the Echo And The Bunnymen singer slated the Beady Eye frontman's songwriting ability.

Liam, who has recently rejoined the social networking site Twitter, used his page to hit out at the 'The Killing Moon' singer, who has previously slagged off Beady Eye lyrics.

Liam Gallagher Tweeted:



It is currently unclear what McCulloch has recently said to upset Liam, but it is likely that Gallagher may have read an interview the Echo And The Bunnyman frontman gave to the Irish Independent in September 2011.

In the interview, McCulloch said: "I like Liam, but, to be honest, Beady Eye are crap. He looks like a fish out of water. He should have bided his time and thought a little more about the lyrics that might be worth writing."

He added: "I feel for him. He's never been the greatest frontman in the world. That's bollocks because there's so much of me in him."

Earlier this year, Liam Gallagher was voted as the greatest frontman of all time in a poll voted for by the listeners of XFM, with Queen singer Freddie Mercury in second place.

The former Oasis man is among those who've made the last eight in NME's search for the Ultimate Musical Icon of the last 60 years.
