The Jam legend has taken part in an interview in next month's issue of Record Collector, where he appears to hurl personal insults in the direction of The Cure frontman.

Asked about Noel Gallagher's new material and whether one of the songs sounds like The Cure's A Forest, he replied: "I don't know about that. I can't fucking stand them. F***ing fat c***, with his lipstick on still and all that b*****ks".

"He's my age as well isn't he?" he continued. "He's a fucking knob-end, man. I don't like him. I wouldn't work with him. there you go, there's someone I wouldn't work with. I'd f***ing slap him or something."
