I first I heard about this on Monday and it has taken me completely by surprise! Everyone knows that NEW ORDER without PETER HOOK is like QUEEN without FREDDIE MERCURY, U2 without THE EDGE, SOOTY without SWEEP!

On a more serious note, I do not understand the decision THE OTHER THREE have taken. I wish they had approached me first. I do not agree with the methods they have used and feel it would have been courteous and professional to have spoken to me in advance of the announcements. It is very sad.

Love PETER HOOK x Sept 2011

Damn right. Beatles without Paul, Doors without Morrison. What is this band going to do? Acoustic set?? Every audience member is going to be STARING AT THE BASS PLAYER with raised eyebrows, thinking "Who the fuck are YOU??"

I recently listened to the Rdaio 4 show, Pete, with John Cooper Clarke. Great fun. I though you guys had made up, anyway? What's Berards' problem? See, as fans, we don't really care what the problem is, we just want it sorted. How can four people who made such amazing, inspiring music for so long just, well, one day say fuck it? I don't get that. The music lives, Pete. Always will.

Yeah but it is only 20 quid return on the ferry from Calais to Dunkirk coming back at 0200am - you know it makes sense !

With the benefit of hindsight (which is always a terrible thing) there seems to be more to the split than meets the eye. Totally respect Hooky's privacy and that of the others, of course. As a fan, of course it's deeply saddening to see this happening to New Order, but c'mon. They've all paid their dues.
