Now that an official Cure 40th anniversary calendar has been sold through their official shop, I can imagine them doing a few special "events" to commemorate this anniversary (maybe a concert feat. former members or something like that)!
Their first single was released in late 1978, wasn't it? So maybe we can look forward to autumn 2018...

It seems more personal than Ulrich's assumption that it has to do with the world

That was a joke (hence the smiley  ;)...)! My whole post wasn't meant too seriously, you seem to be more "professional" in dream interpretation.

Lol also played live... while he could.

And...? Nobody doubted that.  :?

Himself in the Banshees official biography.

That said, Budgie's problem seems to have been less grave than Lol's.

Okay. Good to hear about the latter.

Btw, "delirium tremens" is a very specific part of the problem, not everyone who drinks too much suffers that:

There is one suspicious Reeves Tweet that has appeared in CoF.

Touch wood, touch wood...

I'm afraid we don't know wether he contributed anything or not.

Oh yes, we do...

(And btw I'd said "we can only guess"...)

Oh, yes. Sorry, I'd forgotten about it.

it's not like Robert was in a much better state during The Top/Hyaena...

He played many concerts with 2 bands and performed on 2 albums at the same time, personally I would consider this a "much better state"!

Lol also played live... while he could.

Robert played many concerts with both The Cure and the Banshees, yes.
However, it's no secret that the Banshees weren't very happy with his behaviour.
He didn't ruin a show like John McGeoch (who also had serious trouble with the bottle).
But there are many shows where he clearly is not in top form, both in The Cure and in the Banshees.
Ok, Concert, Nocturne and that TV show with the Banshees (the one with the fish guitar) seem to put a strong objection to that, but you listen to bootlegs from 1983 and 1984, and... well, he really wasn't in top form. Lyrics forgotten, guitar parts badly played... that was not uncommon between 1983 and 1984.
That didn't mean he didn't have his brilliant moments, of course he had them, he's Robert fvcking Smith!!

But Budgie also had delirium tremens

Source?

Himself in the Banshees official biography.
He didn't explicitly say he had it, but he described the symptoms.
Actually, Budgie's alcohol problem was the main reason that led to the break-up of the Banshees... and nearly The Creatures at the same time.
However, Sioux and Budgie managed to stay together for some ten more extra years.

That said, Budgie's problem seems to have been less grave than Lol's.

Well, being that it took place at the church of your school, it sounds as if your belief system is changing, as if you can't go to the same place anymore to find reverence (the altar).The Cure probably symbolizes where  you used to go for reverence and maybe you have to go somewhere else to find your reverence (The Cure) now? Being that The Cure didn't show up there, it's as if that platform doesn't support their message/energy. Also, it could be that you're dreaming of stuff going on in The Cure right now. Perhaps they're going through changes. Maybe we'll see a different Cure line-up soon or something like that. It seems more personal than Ulrich's assumption that it has to do with the world, but I agree the world does seem to be falling apart, although I'm pretty optimistic about it. Things might seem like they're getting worse, but they're getting better in the long run. We're also on the brink of major good things happening if we can just have enough people unite, like on the environment, respect of women, respect of the health of our earth, respect and acceptance of each others differences.

Sounds like a good dream. Change usually is good.

Any ideas of what this could mean?

I am far from an "expert", but I think it might mean you're scared of the possibility of never seeing The Cure again! (Or maybe, like all of us, you're scared the whole world is falling apart while watching helplessly...)  ;)
