Bez says he's not fit enough to take on his classic dance role in the Madchester band.
Speaking to Xfm at the NME Awards the 47 year old Mancunian confessed he won't be dancing on stage with the reformed Happy Mondays at their comeback gigs this year:
"I've had motorbike crashes and all that. You know that Peter Kay joke? Uncle Knobhead and his white loafers? That would have been me" he explained.
He'll still join the band on tour though, in an ambassadorial role.
