4. Peter Hook and New Order
Bassist Peter Hook was in the original line-up of post-punk legends Joy Division, alongside guitarist Bernard Sumner and drummer Steve Morris. When JD singer Ian Curtis committed suicide in 1980, the remaining three members carried on as New Order, employing Gillian Gilbert on keyboards. In 2007, Hook claimed New Order was over, but Sumner and Morris hit back, claiming it wasn't up to him to split the group. New Order reconvened without the bassist, while Hook has toured the band's old material.
