Hook: 'Sumner Is Practically My Wife'

NEW ORDER rocker PETER HOOK argues so much with bandmate BERNARD SUMNER, he likens their relationship to an "old married couple".

The BLUE MONDAY stars have a long history of internal bust-ups and once annoyed each other so much, they trashed a backstage area - much to the chagrin of OASIS wildmen NOEL and LIAM GALLAGHER.

Hook says, "I've known him for 38 years and we're like an old married couple. We've never fought but we smash things up.

"We had a massive row at the Glasgow Barrowlands and smashed the whole place up.

"Oasis played there the next day and Noel and Liam phoned us up to complain."
