"After his split from Depeche Mode (1995), Alan Wilder was approached by contemporary indie-star and Depeche Mode-fan Robert Smith with an offer to join The Cure. Wilder respectfully declined"

:shock:

I just try to image how The Cure would have sounded with Wilder's excellent contribution. Wow, that would have been great I suposse...

Well, there probably would have been less this in the band:





So, why not?  :-D

And maybe The Cure would still have a keyboard player...

I only knew from one of his very early interviews that he couldn't
imagine to play with Depeche Mode longer than ten years.Anyway
it was clever from Robert to ask him.What a shame because I liked
the stuff from Alan. :(
Nous naissons, nous, les androgynes, l'es-

un certain àge. notre nature demande à enfanter.
