Peter Hook Q&A

Since I can’t post tons of news throughout the day, I think I’ll start sending a few links to interviews. I don’t cut and paste news and since I probably shouldn’t post entire interviews, I think links will do. Here is one I found with Peter Hook of Joy Division/New Order (left in 2007).

Peter Hook Says He Used to Forge Curtis’ Signature

This is a chump move if I ever heard one.  Peter Hook of Joy Division/New Order fame admitted that he used to forge Ian Curtis’ signature on various pieces of memorabilia.  He says he did it “as a joke.”  He says

“I did have a reputation for doing Ian Curtis’ autograph for a long time.  There’s some guy who had An Ideal For Living and it was signed by all four members of the band and dated. I went in and said, ‘Have you not noticed that the date is after Ian died?’ It was me, I did them as a joke!”

What a chump!
