LONDON (CelebrityAccess MediaWire) — Former New Order bassist Peter Hook has threatened to sue his ex-bandmates after they announced that they will continue on without him.
“This group has split up,” he wrote in a MySpace blog entry. “You are no more New Order than I am! You may have two thirds, but don’t assume you have the rights to do anything ‘New Order-ey,’ because you don't. I've still got a third! But I'm open to negotiation…See you in court!”
Hook told reporters in May that the band had broken up, but Bernard Sumner and Stephen Morris recently said the group had not split and they would carry on. The band released their last album, “Waiting For The Sirens’ Call,” in 2005.
Sumner and Morris said that Hook had not approached them personally about the decision to end the band when they made their announcement. –by CelebrityAccess Staff Writers
