Ian Curtis: 30 Years On

18 05 2010

30 years ago today, Joy Division front man Ian Curtis, one of the greatest lyricists this country has ever produced, tragically ended his own life at the age of just 23.

Although I was born in a different generation, the raw emotion of Ian’s lyrics and the power of Joy Division’s music is something that has lived on long after his tragic death – influencing me and many other young music fans. I would therefore like to dedicate this post to the legacy of a man who never got the chance to see just how influential his music and his incredible lyrics would become.
