Ian Curtis's house has sold and may yet become a museum
Ian Curtis's Macclesfield home has been bought by musician Hadar Goldman at nearly double the asking price as he paid £75,000 in compensation and legal fees to halt its sale to a private buyer.
According to the Manchester Evening News Hadar, who plays electric violin in the band Ciam, felt he had to get involved after a crowdfunding event failed to raise enough revenue to buy the building and turn it into a museum.
Mr Goldman says any museum would be tasteful and preserve Joy Division's heritage: "The Joy Division legacy deserves to be taken into the 21st century, to raise awareness into one of the most seminal bands in the history of contemporary music. It will be developed using both heart and soul.”
