Anja, you will find there are quite a few people here in our age range... I myself just turned 41 and I can't imagine not liking The Cure anytime in my life. I can see myself at 90 in a retirement home, grumbling to the nurses "Enough of this sh*tty relaxation music, put on The Cure!"

So hello from one of the "oldies", and welcome! :-D

Well, I have to admit to being 49, and having been a Cure fan since 1978...  :smth020
Feeling pretty ancient now  :shock:

I'm 35. But haven't been with The Cure that long. Just about 7 years now. So I'm a newbie compared to the ones whom have been with them since they started or a bit, later. But I will always love them.

The Cure will always be a part of my life.  The songs and music take way to my emeotions and feelings. I could never see me,ever, not having this in my life.

Hi Anja, I'm the same age as you and have been a fan since 1982.  The Cure's music is still a very important part of my life.  Like robiola I can imagine myself in a retirement home at 90 with my iPod (well, probably it's future equivalent) in my ears, listening to Pornography, snapping at the nurses when they tell me to turn it off ("now you listen here girly, THIS is music!!").  Some things will never change for me...

My mother always say to me when you are older you aren't anymore a Cure Fan.
But if you ever have listen to this voice you can't stop listening and that is great.Cause' the Cure is one of the best things in life.

I'm 46 and have been into the band for many years. There will be many more to come I hope. It's a bit of a joke with my workmates, I work in an aged care facility, when there is music playing for our residents they say "pity the home you end up in. You'll be terrorising them wanting The Cure"
And that's the way it should be  :-D  :smth020

Exactly like me j. Fan since 1980. Got to see them for the first time last year in Melbourne aged 45. Sort of comforting to know I'm not alone.

Hello anja!

I'm 39 and been into The Cure since 1982 and I really love them more now than I have before.  So I know when I get older I'll still enjoy their music. :D 

I have a few friends who do not understand my love for the band saying they are just some old 80's group that no one cares about any more. How wrong they are!  It's great to see that they have loads of fans both over & under 30 yeas old.  Even my Mom who is 65 likes some of The Cure's songs.   :smth023

It's a perfect day to throw back your head
And kiss it all goodbye!

Hi to you all,

I'm 33 and I've been listening to The Cure since I was 9 years old!  :smth020

I discovered them through my older sister. The song was?... Close to me! Actually, I remember seeing the video to Inbetween Days and I scared! lol Right at the end, their faces are full of colors and I dunno... I guess it got to me!

Soon after, I got my first two complete albums: The Head on the Door and Pornography, one on each side of a 90 minute TDK tape! lol Yeah, I know... It was illegally brought into my life! But I made up for it, trust me! Because I started collecting their records and I think I ended up putting more money on Cure stuff than on my cars and houses!

I've been a passionate fan ever since. I wish I had seen them live more often though... That's my only regret. Life in Canada... Can't have everything!  ;)

When I saw The Cure live a couple weeks ago, I noticed the crowd was "older" and quieter than when I first saw them in 1989. I honestly think the core of their fans is made of people in their 30's and 40's. I didn't see much faces under 20 years old, that much is clear... Interesting to see our devotion to them... Just how crush will we be when Robert calls it quits or worse... You guys ever thought about that?  :shock: Life without an active Cure?  :roll: It's like... weird to think about!  :? lol

Anyway... Let's cross the bridge when we get to the river, huh?  ;)

Cheers,
Etienne

I'm 37 and i'm a fan since 1985 and i don't regret it. It was the best choice i've made. Love the lyrics, the voice and the sound. And of course i love to see them in concert - it's always like a dream for me :)

I think if you're a long term Cure Fan and you really love them you will be still a fan even if you're grey and old i think.


THE CURE FOREVER!!!!!!  :smth023
