New Order split
Band go their separate ways20 June 07 - New Order confirm that the band have split.
Music fans have known for sometime now that a New Order split was on the cards, at the beginning of the month bassist Peter Hook confirmed that the band had decided to go their own way. Speaking to our 6 Music reporters on Monday as he attended the Mojo Awards, Peter Hook made it clear they wouldn’t work again as a band. Hook looked visibly upset about it, and said:
“It has been very sad actually, and it has been very difficult to live with, but that is life, isn’t it? But you pick yourself up, you dust yourself off, and you start all over again.”
When he was pressed on the reasons for a split, Hook brushed aside the question and stated simply that, “it’s personal.”
Peter Hook was at the Mojo Honours List ceremony to accept a top music award as Joy Division were honoured an Outstanding Contribution to Music gong.
