5.
A nickname for Peter Hook, bassist in Joy Division and then New Order, as well as side projects Revenge and Monaco. Uniquely, his bass takes the role of a lead guitar in most Joy Divison and New Order songs. He plays it at round about knee level and staggers about and appears to be fighting with it.
Hooky is a grumpy sod, but a fantastic bass player.
