Outstanding contribution 
New Order won the Mojo Outstanding Contribution to Music award at the recent Mojo Awards. Accepting the award alongside Stephen Morris at the central London gala do, Hooky said "After Ian died, and we were all in the pub, as you do, Rob Gretton said to us 'Don't worry lads, you're gonna be fucking big in 10 years time.' It wasn't much solace at the time. But now, 20, 30 years on, it's fucking great! But I do wish he was here to see it."
