The Cure Add “Reflections” Concerts Stateside, Call Out R&R Hall of Fame

Posted September 28th, 2011 by eric

The Cure has been nominated for induction into the joke that is the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Kudos! Except, wait, Robert Smith is pissed about something. Evidently, The Cure’s “current” drummer was left off the name check list on the band’s bio at the official Hall of Fame site. In the Hall of Fame’s defense, The Cure’s revolving door policy for members over the past 30 years is bound to result in a few oversights. Granted, Jason Cooper has been in The Cure for 17 years. But in all honesty The Cure isn’t being nominated for anything Jason Cooper has added to the canon. Playing drums on 17 years of, uhh, less than stellar albums does not an induction into the Rock n Roll Hall of Fame make.

In other Cure news, the band is preparing to reprise its “Reflections” concerts, wherein the band will play its first three albums in their entirety for special shows in London, New York, and Los Angeles this November.
