40 years ago today, the music world lost Ian Curtis, singer for seminal Post-Punk/Goth-Rock legends Joy Division to suicide. The band’s influence on Alternative Music is felt to this day as many artists paid tribute to Ian.
The Killers singer Brandon Flowers joined former Joy Division members Bernard Sumner and Stephen Morris (now New Order members) for a two hour streaming event called Moving Through the Silence: Celebrating the Life & Legacy of Ian Curtis with proceeds going to a charity called Manchester Mind.
