Former Drummer Is Keen to Reunite With The Cure


Lol Tolhurst reveals that he has reached out to frontman Robert Smith because he wants to rejoins the band, more than 20 years after he was fired.

Former The Cure drummer Lol Tolhurst has reached out to frontman Robert Smith in a bid to rejoin the band, more than 20 years after he was fired. Tolhurst left the punk icons in the late 1980s because of an alleged drinking problem, but he's now keen to reunite with his former bandmates in time to celebrate the 30th anniversary of the Cure's seminal 1981 album "Faith" in 2011.

Speaking to Los Angeles radio station KXLU, the drummer revealed he had pitched the idea to Smith of touring the album around the world in 2011. A Cure fan site later reported "the ball is now in Robert's court". Tolhurst, who went onto perform with band Levinhurst, sued Smith in 1991 over a royalties dispute, but they reconciled in the early 2000s and have been in contact since.

Speaking in 2003, the drummer said, "I think we both have the idea that there's lots of things that we can still do (together)... and I'm sure that it will happen. It's not a question of 'if', it's more a question of 'when'."
