Cure, The (Robert Smith)/Expert Profile

Ask A Question


READ THIS CAREFULLY BEFORE ASKING !!! I will answer any kind of query about their music & instruments. I won't answer questions about private life. Just don't ask or the questions will be rejected. Be sure I won't waste my time explaining why. I'm not able and (above all) not willing to answer questions about their wives (please subscribe to the Sunday Sun for this kind of questions, you may find answers). Sounds crazy to write that but I've received some really stupid queries about this subject lately... Other point of interest before you send questions : I'm not a psychanalyst. All questions revolving around you loving Robert as a dad (or lover) are no questions but matter of fact. I'll be delighted not to answer these queries... Last but not least : I won't answer people who don't even care reading replies (yeah, strange, but some "people" do that, showing the interest they put in their own questions and how the respect the time given by volunteers...). No read or rate ? no further questions answered !

Hello Jacqueline,     I never heard before about "The Lost Boy". So I gave it a listen.    Even if it for sure sounds Cure-ish (instrumentation, mood, way of playing), I'm quite sure none of The Cure members

As strange as it may sound, I've not seen them live since 2000. The last time I saw this band I got bored after one hour of concert. The magic spell had gone and I never tried the experience again, despite

Hi again Paul,     The phasers (as Boss pedals) came late in the rig. When I mean "late", I mean after 1992, but I'd to check if he used this effect in 1996. He did for sure in 2000, the guitar solo of

2015-10-30 Phaser and flanger:

Hi Paul,     Robert Smith's use of phaser is mainly based on Boss pedals, at least for live performances (has he ever used anything else but Boss pedals from 1984 onwards ?). Now, for sure , there is far
