The 'Inhaler' singer insists there aren't enough hellraisers like the former Oasis man anymore and he wishes his peers would start partying more and enjoy being in a band.
Speaking at the Q Awards in London on Monday (21.10.13), Yannis said: ''I like Liam, I met him before and he was charmingly offensive and I like people like him. You look at the 90s and British guitar bands were mouthy. Now it's pre-prescribed dullness. It needs to change ... I've already had a scotch so I'm on my way. You can always rely on me to try and stir things up but rock 'n' roll is so square these days. Everyone's polite and groomed and media trained and they're worried about their careers. That's the problem.''
Although Yannis respects Liam, he claims the Beady Eye rocker still deserves a punch for his idiotic behaviour.
When asked if he'd be looking to start a feud with Liam's long-time rival Robbie Williams at the ceremony - which was held at the Grosvenor House Hotel - the rocker replied: ''I'd rather kick off with Liam than Robbie. What's Robbie ever done? Liam's the one that needs a hiding.''
Yannis, 27, and his bandmates took home the Best Live Act gong at the awards ceremony, beating Arctic Monkeys, Mumford & Sons, Muse and The Stone Roses, to the accolade.
When asked by BANG Showbiz where the five-piece would be keeping their trophy, Yannis joked: ''The bog! You can have it in your bog if you want.''
