Since high school The Cure has been one of my favorite all time bands ever. Like, life-changing favorites (don’t ask me what my favorite album is or my head might explode). So when I was able to photograph co-founder Lol Tolhurst for his new memoir Cured, I can tell you I couldn’t have been more honored (well, that’s the generic description of how I felt… I was actually STOKED!!). The photo session took place at my home studio in Los Angeles. Lol was an absolute pleasure to work with and we both were thrilled with the results. After the shoot he graciously stuck around to sign some Cure records and posters from my personal collection. I can’t wait to read the book and definitely hope we can collaborate again in the future!
As of this writing Lol is in the UK promoting the memoir. If you live in the U.S. be sure to check for book tour dates starting in October. You can find out everything you need to know at lol.tolhurst.com. (it’s a great site!)
Also take a look at the links below for recent interviews with Lol. Enjoy!
