Robert Smith of The Cure is the best! Please help me out with some facts on him and his band! A.M., Salinas, Calif.
The British group first got together in 1976, when they were schoolmates known as Easy Cure! Lead singer and guitarist Robert joined the lineup in 1978, and The Cure released its first single. The bandsí often gloomy sound went out of fashion in the early 1980ís, and The Cure took a break. But fortunately for the bandís fans, the mysterious quintet made a strong comeback with albums like Japanese Whispers and a slightly revamped (but still bizarre) sound.
