Peter Hook Admits to Forgin Ian Curtis' Signature on Memorabilia

In an interview with Contact Music, New Order and Joy Division bassist Peter Hook admitted to signing deceased Joy Division frontman Ian Curtis' signature on fan memorabilia, including copies of Joy Division's debut Ideal for Living EP.

"There's some guy who had (debut Joy Division EP) '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!" he explained.

That's pretty morbid, and sort of funny. Moral of the story, kids? Don't buy any signed Joy Division ephemera. Peter Hook is just screwing with you. [Contact]
