Robert Smith talks
about us in Rolling Stone
From Bill Stevens, taken from a Robert
Smith Q&A on Rolling Stone online (Thanks to Julie Niven for the URL to the Q&A).
From what I heard, the full interview will appear in the next Rolling Stone (printed) and
he talks even more about Morrissey and The Smiths. We'll see.
Who has more rabid fans, the Cure or Morrissey?
Id much rather have our fans than his our fans are generally quiet,
well-spoken and friendly and not pretentious in the slightest. Hopefully, that reflects
the nature of the Cure. Despite what the mainstream media would have you believe,
were a very natural group. The people who have been in the group over the years have
been there because they have been friendly with each other. There has been no sense of
purpose other than making music together. I think if Morrisseys fans reflect what
Morrissey is like as an individual or the way he projects himself as an individual then
... uh ... Ill stop there.
