Quote from: mrd6376 on July 14, 2007, 22:13:32Few bands shake up their line up as consistently as The Cure. Is this all Robert's doing? Or do previous members just tend to leave out of their own initiative? I believe Lol was fired, but in general, is Robert just difficult to work with???
Quote from: dsanchez on April 19, 2014, 20:46:44I only remember a dispute between Robert and Simon which ended with the later leaving the band in 1983 (Philip Thornalley replaced him for "The Top").
Quote from: dsanchez on April 19, 2014, 20:46:44In 1984 we had Andy in the drums, but he was replaced by Boris because of -if I remember correctly- alcohol problems.
Quote from: dsanchez on April 19, 2014, 20:46:44After the Prayer Tour Roger decided to leave to do his own thing.
Quote from: dsanchez on April 19, 2014, 20:46:44So in general, I wouldn't say Robert is the main responsible of the line up changes.
Quote from: cheyler on April 29, 2014, 01:02:18I have a feeling this message will be criticized (what a prophet I am...) but...We now know why Porl left in 2009.
Quote from: cheyler on April 30, 2014, 20:13:15We don't know anything, you are correct. I think the video from the final concert in 2009 and the video from last year pretty much tell the story of what happened in-between.
Quote from: cheyler on April 30, 2014, 20:13:15I'd be kind of disappointed if my speculation about the different line-up changes was correct but it feels right.
Quote...The songs from the album weren't difficult to play live but some of the older songs with multiple parts posed a challenge for only one keyboard. There was a lot of pressure on me to do it alone as Boris and Paul were adamant they didn't want Perry to be asked to join the band. This of course changed when I left.The Pictures Of You video shoot Glencoe Scotland 1990:It was shot long after the end of the tour in January 1990 I think. The atmosphere within the group was terrible, there was very very bad feeling between Simon and Boris which was later turned on me. (...)So we were all set up in the snow and playing the song over and over again in front of some fake palm trees in the freezing cold drinking brandy. We actually had battery powered amps and played the song for real, I think you can hear a bit in it. The next day we tried to get home but the whole of Britain was gripped in this massive storm and we only got as far as Birmingham I think. Yeah not very good memories of that trip and it was the beginning of the end for me. I couldn't take the drama and the back biting and all the shit anymore, four months later I got in my car and drove away.

Quote from: cheyler on May 05, 2014, 01:27:48... then we get 'Never Enough' (which in keeping with tradition seemed to be a reaction to the previous goings-on).
Quote from: cheyler on May 05, 2014, 22:29:27Do you prefer the guitar stuff ('Wish' etc.) or the keys stuff or like it all for the most part?
