Rock Shrines: Ian Curtis 
Under the front page headlines 'Dancing on the graves', John Harris goes in search of Britain's rock shrines in today's Guardian.

Harris set out to investigate "the strange fixation that rock fans have with their idols' last resting places". His "ultimate UK rock-grave odyssey" began at in Macclesfield where a small stone inscribed with the words 'Love Will Tear Us Apart' marks the passing of Ian Curtis.

Other rock stars featured on the oddly macabre tour include John Bonham, Marc Bolan, Nick Drake and Brian Jones.
