QuoteFrom Lol on Facebook:"This week sees the 40th anniversary of the the band of musicians/ friends that became the Cure! I'll take the liberty here of quoting from my own book !"Personally, I consider the first gig we did as the band that became The Cure to be the one that we did on December 20, 1976, the Malice gig at our old secondary school, St. Wilfrid's. True, we had done a gig of sorts a couple of days earlier in the minstrels' gallery at Worth Abbey for Upjohn's Christmas party, and a rather strange "performance" in 1973 as The Obelisk, but this was our first full-blown concert."Actually since I wrote the above I've changed my mind a little bit. To me it is unimportant which date you consider, the 18th or the 20th, as the start of the band that became The Cure .What I do think IS important , is the fact that The Cure is STILL a band, and that Robert, Pearl and Michael are STILL in my life forty years later!It's the testimony of time to real friendship that I care about. I feel blessed. Lx"
Quote...my bandmates Robert and Simon, two men I had known since childhood......as I greeted them a kindly but concerned look crossed Simon's face, and I knew he understood.'All right, Lol? You're up next!'Simon had had his own emotional upheavals with the band, so it shouldn't have come as a suprise that he would be so perceptive, like a brother would be.
