The Cure’s Lol Tolhurst Presents His Memoir, CURED


The Sisters - 639 S College


For the first time in the band’s forty-year history, here is the incredible story of The Cure—virtual inventors of alternative music—from someone who was there at the very beginning.

A founding “imaginary boy,” Lol Tolhurst threads the genesis of The Cure through his adolescence with lead vocalist Robert Smith, the iconic leader of the group, to their stratospheric rise as one of the most influential, critically acclaimed, and commercially successful bands of modern times. After forming in 1976, Lol and The Cure racked up an impressive number of achievements that includes selling over 27 million units worldwide and earning 40 Platinum and Gold Records in the U.S., Europe and Japan. The band’s journey to global success is woven into a story that reveals the highs and lows of the lifelong friendship between Lol and Robert, who met at age five on their first day of school together in Crawley, England, 1964.

A must-read for both diehards and the uninitiated, CURED highlights the parts of a creative trek that are not normally revealed to fans, as Lol takes readers on his personal odyssey from suburban London to the Mojave desert and across the miles of love, addiction, pain, forgiveness and ultimately, redemption, experienced in-between. CURED is the story of a timeless band and a life truly lived.
