Jim Kerr says Q Awards missed 'hellraiser' Liam Gallagher
According to Jim Kerr, the Simple Minds singer, the Q Awards missed the hellraising behaviour of Liam Gallagher.

Simple Minds singer Jim Kerr thinks the Q Awards missed the hellraising behaviour of Liam Gallagher.

The singer - who was previously married to Patsy Kensit, who was also Liam's wife at one stage - was thrilled to be at the ceremony at the Grosvenor House hotel in central London today (22.10.14), but admitted it would have been livened up by Liam's rock 'n' roll behaviour.

When asked why there are fewer misbehaving rock stars now, the 55-year-old star told BANG Showbiz: ''We're missing Liam. We need him. These things go in cycles - this time next year they'll be someone coming over the horizon to turn up and do something.''

In 2000, Robbie Williams walked out of the Q Awards after a slanging match with Liam.

When urged to kick-start the bad behaviour at this year's ceremony, Jim laughed: ''Are you reverting to typecast because we're from Glasgow? Look we certainly know how to get a party started. When you're younger you certainly do, we were barely out of school when we got a record deal. We were very much like kids in a candy store.''

Jim hopes the singer brings out more music soon, whether with his band Beady Eye or through a new endeavour, because he is a big fan of the rocker.

He said: ''I've no idea what Liam should do next but I'm a fan, I think he's a great frontman and I'm always curious as to what he is doing. You don't get to be that popular without having something.''

Jim and his Simple Minds bandmates were honoured with the Q Inspiration Award, presented to them by Manic Street Preachers frontman James Dean Bradfield.

The singer was proud to receive the accolade and revealed the band have never lost their hunger for music during their near 40-year career.

He said: ''Its cause were still into it, we've never woke up and felt, 'There's nothing else to do.'

''We still want to be a better live band, we still want to write better songs. I suppose it's obvious you've got to get on and you've to get through the good times and the bad.''
