Fun Lovin' Criminals frontman Huey Morgan has blasted fellow New Yorkers The Strokes for lacking the passion to play convincing rock'n'roll.

The SCOOBY SNACKS singer dismisses the fashionable group as an over-privileged "boy band".

And womanising Morgan is less than impressed with The Strokes' model and actress girlfriends.

He says, "They can have all those skinny bitches. I am not impressed - they're a boy band.

"They met in a Swiss boarding school and are just a bunch of rich kids playing at it."
