Maurice E mentions the additional tweets:

@QuintinForbes You're right. I just didn't enjoy The Smiths songs. He was in fine form though.

@QuintinForbes Quite right. I think "cover versions"was maybe the wrong phrase. I just didn't enjoy The Smiths songs. He sounded great tho.

@mj_quinn The "band" were the musicians in The Smiths...Mozzer wasn't in the "band' M was the singer/lyricist in the group.



From Mike Joyce's Twitter page:

"Gr8 performance from M at Glasto but didn't like the cover versions. M was in the group...but not in the band, those tunes belong to them."

Presumably, he thinks Marr's solo versions of Smiths songs are faultless?
Also, how about Joyce Michael, as a member of the 'band' treats us to his own version of the Smiths songs?

This month on Xfm 25 - our look back at albums turning 25 this year – we celebrate one the most influential records of the 1980s – The Queen Is Dead by The Smiths. Much loved by fans for featuring There Is A Light That Never Goes Out and now regarded as arguably their greatest work.

Ian Camfield explores the making of this landmark album and the legacy it has left behind. The Queen Is Dead will then be played in full at the end of the documentary. Contributors include guitarist Johnny Marr, engineer Stephen Street, Brett Anderson, Billy Bragg, Mani, Guy Garvey and Clint Boon.

Xfm 25 airs Sunday June 26 from 10pm.

Having not listened to previous programmes in this series I am not sure what to expect, but it should be interesting.
Deanna Delamotta: Time for city to give Morrissey his due - is The Queen Is Dead the best album of all time? - Manchester Evening News blog

June 23, 2011

This month marks the 25th anniversary of The Queen Is Dead, but don’t expect Morrissey to celebrate the release of the album despite the indie music intelligentsia (and David Cameron) hailing it as the best album of all time.
