No surprise that Peter Hook -- whose new book, "Unknown Pleasures: Inside Joy Division," will be published in October -- will not be part of this reunion. His friendship with the others dissolved years ago and in response to Hook and his own band playing Joy Division cover gigs, New Order's Bernard Sumner told the Guardian, ""We've spent all our life as an outfit with principles and ideals and what Peter has done goes against everything we've stood for. He thought Joy Division were depressing." Hooky's response? "If I'd asked him for permission, they'd have told me to fuck off anyway." And when New Order reunited last year, Hook posted the following on his site: "Everyone knows New Order without Peter Hook is like Queen without Freddie Mercury, U2 without The Edge, Sooty without Sweep!" Oh well, I'm just glad Gillian Gilbert is back in the band!
