The inside story of The Cure 'Beautifully realised' Irish Times Coming of age in Thatcher's Britain in the late 70s and early 80s was really tough, especially if you lived in Crawley. But against the grinding austerity, social unrest and suburban boredom, the spark of rebellion that was punk set alight three young men who would become one of the most revered and successful bands of their generation. The Cure. Cured is a memoir by Lol Tolhurst, one of the founding imaginary boys, who met Robert Smith when they were five. Lol threads the genesis of The Cure through his schoolboy years with Smith, the iconic leader of the group, and the band's most successful era in the 1980s. He takes us up to the present day, a riveting forty years since the band's inception. The band's journey to worldwide success is woven into a story not only of great highs and lows but also of love, friendship, pain, forgiveness and, ultimately, redemption on a beach in Hawaii. Cured highlights those parts of the creative journey that are not normally revealed to fans, incorporating many first-hand recollections around Lol's personal odyssey. From suburban London to the Mojave desert, Cured brings an acute eye for the times to bear on a lifelong friendship, with tales of addiction and despair along the way. Cured is the story of a timeless band and a life truly lived.

  1. Måsteläsning för Curefans
    Björn Blomquist, 24 mars 2018

    Är du ett fan av The Cure måste du läsa denna bok! Tolhurst berättar sin historia på ett både engagerat och underhållande sätt. Bandets bildande och tidiga år redovisas utförligt med många anekdoter från turnélivet. Detaljrikedomen minskar emellertid ju längre boken pågår och jag hade önskat att själva musikskapandet hade fått större utrymme. Intressant hur som helst att få en djupare insikt i Tolhursts alkoholproblem och annat som ledde till hans avsked från gruppen.
