QuoteThe man behind some of the finest post-punk basslines ever commited to record, Simon Gallup joined The Cure in 1979 recorded The Dark Trilogy of albums (Seventeen Seconds, Faith and Pornography) before getting into a fist fight with Robert Smith and leaving the band for two years in 1982. Since his return in 1984 they've been firm friends, something probably aided by his amazing lines on the likes of Love Cats and Close To Me.
Quote from: cheyler on August 14, 2014, 00:41:57I'm never sure who has done the composing of the bass parts in The Cure.
Quote from: cheyler on August 18, 2014, 21:16:36I'll have to listen too. 'Last Day Of Summer' is an all-timer for me, didn't Simon come up with 'Lovesong' too?
Quote from: cheyler on August 18, 2014, 21:16:36Anybody know what's the purpose of the 'huddle' at the beginning of 'Pictures Of You'? Robert and Simon get together in front of Jason and they stay there until Robert starts playing notes instead of chords then they go back out front.
Quote from: Ulrich on August 19, 2014, 12:15:32 to me it always looked like they enjoy playing this "intro" together, facing each other.
Quote from: plasticpassion on December 30, 2015, 10:20:18I'm not a Duran duran hater, however John Taylor is not a top 10 bassist and is definitely not on par with Simon, Geddy, and Flea. No one has ever done so many memorable pop bass lines as Simon, and no one can funk like Flea.
