New Order frontman Bernard Sumner has warned fans to be “wary” of Peter Hook’s new book.
Peter Hook, who was the bassist for Joy Division until the band’s split, previously announced
that he is releasing his official Joy Division memoirs in October.
But now Sumner has spoken out about his misgivings, saying that Hook’s opinions may not always be entirely true.
He told XFM: “I’ve got to be very careful about my answer, it’s important. He was in Joy Division so he has a right to write the book, but he’s a very opinionated person and quite a lot of the time his opinions are wrong – so I’d be very wary of that book.”
When asked if he had any plans to write his own version of the Joy Division story, Sumner added: “Eventually the truth always comes out doesn’t it? One day the truth will come out.”
