Are They, Or Are They Not, Breaking Up? New Order:
Bernard Sumner and Stephen Morris claim that New Order can continue without Peter Hook. Hooky recently stated that the band has broken up, but Sumner and Morris just issued a statement stating:
"After 30 years in a band together we are very disappointed that Hooky has decided to go to the press and announce unilaterally that New Order have split up. We would have hoped that he could have approached us personally first. He does not speak for all the band, therefore we can only assume he no longer wants to be a part of New Order."
Yeah, and Smashing Pumpkins are just as great without James Iha and D'Arcy/Auf der Maur.
