and other (ex)Fall members are on record as being Bowie fans (Steve Hanley, Brix Smith, Marc Riley...).
So before the populace here want to burn him on a stake (like Kevin Rowland), for being less than respectful about our hero, I'd say relax. Actually he did say on another occasion that Pin Ups was a very good cover album when asked about cover albums, with no sarcasm this time. Bowie pushed MES into a war with words through the music press after he dissed the Fall's 'Bend Sinister' album. The quotes I've read from 'both sides' on the matter made funny reading (to me at least).
The Fall live? It's a matter of luck. Can be awful, but at times only...he'll rescue it with some fantastic performances during a gig that started terribly, in a way no-one else can.
Oh, and the Glastonbury show last year...it was champagne on his trousers if anyone's seen that
(a member of another band saw him swigging Moet and Chandon backstage and asked for some and things went downhill before they made up and had a good chat).
