This is the second case of vandalism in the grave of Ian Curtis
It is not the first time that Ian Curtis’ tomb suffers some attack of vandalism, as it is known that some years ago they also took the central stone that covered the tuba, and in response to this fact he had to be replaced by an equal. No one knows why 11 years after this act the situation is repeated identically.
It is assumed that another stone will soon be placed in the place from which it was stolen, however the measures that will be taken to remedy and avoid these situations in the future are unknown. The thief or thieves had to take their time since these stones are not light at all, especially one of that size and thickness.
Ian Curtis’ suffering pushed him to the limit
The death of Ian Curtis was more than 3 decades ago, and reliving those moments is quite difficult for the members of the band, when the news of his suicide came nobody could believe it, in a very short time they would start their tour of the last album “Closer”.
During his last months Curtis suffered a great increase in his epilepsy attacks (during his interpretations inclusive) and it was very difficult to ensure his presence in all the appearances of the band, although he was treated by doctors and with drugs none of these caused him an improvement remarkable, but quite the opposite. Added to that he went through a stage when he had to divorce his wife, this was too much for the singer who decided to end his health problems and his suffering taking his life at such a young age.
