Books Info:

Robert Smith free pdf The very first in-depth biography on The Cure explores nearly thirty years of one of rock's most influential bands. Formed as The Easy Cure in 1976 by school friends Robert Smith, Lol Tolhurst and Michael Dempsey, The Cure were one of the first post-punk bands to inject pure pop back into post-Pistols rock. Throughout a career filled with paradox and evolution, endless personnel changes, and side-projects including stints with Slouxsie and the Banshees and The Glove, iconic frontman Robert Smith has remained alive to changes in the music scene. Now in their third decade they remain relevant and connected, when many of their contemporaries are reduced to nostalgia packages and worse. This full-length, extensively researched biography of the band, and of Smith - one of rock's most enduring figures - is the most up-to-date telling of a never-ending story- it also analyses in depth the 'goth' subculture and its relationship with The Cure.
