SAE Chicago Presents Lol Tolhurst: Cured, A Tale of Two Imaginary Boys
For the first time in the band’s nearly forty–year history, here is the story of The Cure—virtual inventors of alternative music—from someone who was there at the very beginning: Lol Tolhurst, the band’s co–founder, co–songwriter, and lifelong friend of lead singer Robert Smith.
Smith prefers to let the band’s songs speak for themselves, making Cured the only insider memoir of the group that has helped generations navigate their angst–filled teen years.
From Smith and Tolhurst’s early childhood to the band’s heyday, Cured illuminates and surprises in equal measure. Tolhurst mines the band’s peak years (1976–1989) to produce never–before–told tales of The Cure, shining a light on the mercurial and fascinating Robert Smith.
Revealing the highs and lows in a lifelong relationship, Cured is a touching personal odyssey of triumph, despair, and ultimately understanding and redemption.
Lol Tulhurst will present some history of the band, answer questions, and sign the book — which will be available for purchase! Open to the public!
