I must say i am not very open to new groups and music, in fact The Cure are the exception of the rule for me, since i am a very 'pop' guy

Not being open is not good (in my humble opinion). I've listened to all kinds of stuff from rock to classic (including sitting through 4-hour-operas).

"Pop" is not a bad thing - I'm sure you'll find Robert listened to pop songs as well. For example, I remember The Cure had the singer from Republica (Saffron) doing guest vocals on "Just Say Yes".
Also I found this:

On Your Web site, you cite En Vogue as a band you like. Can you honestly tell me when you last broke out the Funky Divas album?
A few years ago, my CD collection had grown to such insane proportions that I gave away about ninety percent of them. The ones that were left I listed on our Web site. I kept the En Vogue album because I really liked it. Some of it sounded like Janet Jackson – I like some of her stuff. But I wouldn't say I'm a fan. It's partly tongue-in-cheek.

What else did you listen to as a kid?
When punk came along, I found my generation's music. I grew up listening to the Beatles and the Rolling Stones and Pink Floyd, 'cause that was what got played in the house. But when I first saw the Stranglers, I thought, "This is it." And I saw the Buzzcocks the following week, and I thought, "This is definitely it."
Oh, i am aware , but , unfortunately (well my wallet likes it though xD ) my tastes don't allow me to like most of the music i listen to, so at least it isn't because i don't try.

 I am, however,slowly getting tired to try new music, i mean i am older, have not much time and patience anymore , i even did not give the latest cure albums the time they deserved back in the day - i am giving them now that time, and i am glad i did,i am really enjoying them!!

The only band that has grown on me lately has been The Sounds, they are pop rock, a little bit like Saffron's former band, Republica, which i liked, and was pleasantly surprised when saw her joint The Cure fur Just say Yes.
I also tried 'En Vogue', but not my cup of tea :(
