The Cure Co-Founder Lol Tolhurst Tells a Story of 'Love & Redemption' in New Book 'Cured: The Tale of Two Imaginary Boys'

When drummer Lol Tolhurst was fired in 1989 from The Cure, the band he founded with Robert Smith in 1976, it was an event of particularly tragic proportions. They were about to go from being what he describes as a “pop phenomenon” to being international superstars, on the strength of what many (including Kyle from South Park) considered to be one of the greatest albums ever made.
