5. Bernard Sumner - Chapter And Verse: New Order, Joy Division And Me (2014)
After Peter Hook's version, here's the other side. For the first time, the Joy Div/New Order guitarist details the horrible childhood that spawned much of the gloomy music he created, before blossoming into a hedonistic recounting of the Madchester days. Sumner is very frank about the Hook/New Order split, but there are some laughs to be had, most notably when he and Johnny Marr attempt to do interviews for their Electronic project while chronically hungover.
