My first absolutely non-West Virginia related post, but it IS a music blog, so what the hell. Thirty years ago today brought the death of Joy Division frontman Ian Curtis, and I wanted to pay tribute. I don't have any inspired words to say about Curtis, whose personality was far from extraordinary - instead he was just a great wordsmith and vocalist who had epileptic seizures and bouts with depression and heartbreak, which lead to his suicide in 1980. But I love Joy Division, so I wanted to post some videos. RIP Ian Curtis (15 July 1956 – 18 May 1980).
