Personal Quote:

I think they (U2) were Joy Division fans. I have said some bitchy things about Bono since then, but the truth is, if I'm honest, I'm a little bit jealous of them. They were our peers, but things seemed to go smoothly for them, whereas things seemed to go disastrously wrong for us at every turn.


New Order were inducted into the UK Music Hall of Fame for their outstanding contribution to British music and integral part of British music culture. (16 November 2005). See more »
