Chapter and Verse: New Order, Joy Division and Me - Bernard Sumner
Another Yule gift that I decided to read immediately. I'm also a fan of Joy Division and New Order, although I confess I have been out of the loop of the latter band's output for a while, through no fault of the band. This book got a bit more into how some specific songs came about and etc., while also providing a thorough background of how both of these bands came to be. It was also very sad to read about Ian Curtis and what drove him to end his life at an early age. All in all it was a well done look inside these bands and the lives of successful musicians.
