QuoteThere has been a war going on between The Smiths and The Cure since I can remember, based on he [Morrissey] is an idiot. Everybody knows that.
QuoteWhen Robert asked me why I did the film about Morrissey I told him I did it because I hate him, and I could make lots of money out of it.
QuoteWe [The Cure] live very quiet outside of when we're on stage
QuoteWe usually don't argue with him [Robert] cause is pointless. You know, when he chooses a set list, I might say something and Simon might say something [...] well, first of all we didn't know if we were coming [to the induction] until about two weeks ago because he couldn't just decide whether we should do it.
QuoteThe Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in their great 'wisdom' refused to accept Andy along Mathew and Phil Thornalley, which we thought it was absolutely ridiculous [...] It would have been such a nice thing to do for Andy, but they just refused, and that really pissed us off to be honest.
QuoteThe Rock & Roll Hall of Fame does not mean anything in England and it does not mean anything to any of us. We are not hockey players.
QuoteWe are very comfortable with each other [in the current The Cure line up], which has not always been the case
QuoteYou can never believe anything Robert says.

QuoteWe write individually and bring the demos and listen to them all together, and then we mark them, and then we choose the best ones. And ultimately Robert chooses the songs that he thinks he can write lyrics to and sing to

Quote from: MeltingMan on April 09, 2019, 11:06:42Another one expressed his view that this is a "popularity contest" and that The Cure actually don't need that.
QuoteBeing part of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame does not make them greater than they already are. The Cure's music is not a popularity contest.
QuoteThis is not only a popularity contest, but also a loyalty test, so every loyal fan has to vote every day.
Quote from: MeltingMan on April 09, 2019, 11:06:42From today's perspective it all seems right, I mean Robert's behavior (previously discussed) and Roger'sstatement so far, but it gives me a slight bitter taste, because I voted almost every day.
Quote from: Ulrich on April 09, 2019, 11:26:38I'd also added critical quotes about the HoF and its proceedings, but you had nothing to say about that. Had you paid more attention to those, maybe you wouldn't have wasted your time on voting every day...
Quote from: MeltingMan on April 11, 2019, 10:22:01I didn't ignore those quotes. The idea was to save The Cure from a worse placing...
