Ian Curtis' headstone stolen

LONDON - Thieves have stolen a memorial stone for Ian Curtis, frontman of the influential British post-punk band Joy Division.

The stone, bearing the epitaph “Love Will Tear Us Apart” — the title of the band’s most famous song — was taken from Macclesfield Crematorium in northern England on Monday or Tuesday, police said.

Fans from all over the world would travel to the site to pay their respects, often leaving messages and tokens behind.

Lame.

Also, my brain read "messages and tokens" as "meaningless tokens," but I'm not bitter, really. At least it's "friday"
