Quote from: cure89 on October 14, 2011, 08:54:25Hi, I posted only a "True Words" because Adlib wrote the words I always thought. There's no reason to react pissed about anything, I think.
Quote from: Ulrich on October 21, 2011, 16:34:17your short post should've made Adlib "mad" as well
QuoteYou could easily look at the switch between the Cure's two definitive drummers as the fulcrum between the two phases of their career. Lol Tolhurst's drumming was tight, economical, and unembellished, guiding the Cure through their post-punk and goth years with his crisp and dark playing, but by the mid-'80s, the band was moving on to bigger and better things, and brought on Boris Williams to fill in as Lol became increasingly unreliable. Williams' drum work, pronounced, thundering and anthemic, was just what the band needed for the epic and commercially viable musical statements they'd make for the rest of the decade, through the early '90s. Then they brought on some other guy, and no one cared about the band again. Coincidence?

Quote from: Adlib on October 21, 2011, 18:52:42I just wonder who you consider you are to decree what's on or off topic and then reply again to something you considered being off topic... Quietly paradoxal to a cartesian mind, sorry...
Quote from: Miss_starry_eyed on January 06, 2012, 20:02:24I really do not think that Jason Cooper is a bad drummer. Really it's about the songs & not one singular musician. I think Roberts point is he's been committed member longer than the others.
