ELO frontman Jeff Lynne has launched an astonishing attack on 90s sensations Oasis calling the band and their music 'shit'.
In an interview with Rolling Rock magazine, Lynne says Noel Gallagher is a 'Jessie', and 'a talentless one at that'.
'That song Wonderwall is the biggest pile of shite I've ever heard,' he said.
He goes on: 'They haven't done a fucking thing of any merit whatsoever in twenty years, the true mark of greatness stems from output. Gallagher has demonstrated he cannot consistently put out tunes.'
Of Liam Gallagher, Lynne describes him as an 'imbecile':
'He stands there with that gormless expression on his face chewing gum, and believing he's as good as John Lennon. He has the musical ability of Neil Lennon.'
In response Noel Gallagher is reported to have said 'Who the fuck is Jeff Lynne?'
