The Cure's frontman since 1976. I discovered them aged 17 when Seventeen Seconds came out, and after playing "A Forest" to death, when I was 18 the incredible album "Faith" came out, which I again played incessantly. Then, aged19, the album "Pornography" came out (that will be asterisked out by the TES censors) with the utterly magnificent, intense track, The Figurehead. Truly Smith was the voice of my adolescence. I tell you what, still play The Cure albums and songs occasionally, and they are still amazing. Happy Birthday, and thank you, Robert!
