Lol yesterday:

Artist Session: The Cure’s Lol Tolhurst.

SDMT Lol TolhurstThe first artist session of the day was given by composer / musician / writer Lol Tolhurst, perhaps best known as a founding member of The Cure - a band many credit with the formation of Alternative music, and is one of the most influential, successful and critically acclaimed bands of their generation. After captivating a packed room with stories of lighthearted band antics, Tolhurst shared experiences from The Cure (formally known as Malice and later The Easy Cure) that were applicable to seemingly everyone present, from the veteran to the postmillennial.

One question brought up in the Q &A was “What caused The Cure to unravel?” One source of the process, Tolhurst pointed out, was completely natural. Touring musicians seem to forge a closeness stronger than marriage, and this can prove incredibly difficult. A band is a very unnatural situation for young people to be a part of. As he stated, “A band is more than the sum of its parts. It’s like a gang…a band’s success has absolutely nothing to do with the quality of music…The thing that makes what you do transcendent is the chemistry between the people playing, and you need to protect it at all costs.”
