  1. Happy Happy Birthday Robert! Have a brilliant and beautiful day. We are almost done with driving over 1700 miles to see you and the band in Vegas and Coachella and it was worth every mile to get to be a part of your birthday celebrations.

  4. HAPPY B-DAY TO YOU, ROBERT ¡¡¡

    Sorry for posting it here, but i´m very happy for his 50th bday and for the last night amazing RS-CURE proof of what he-they are the best band in the world for ever.

    I tried to do my best and i wrote a brief tribute to Robert on my blog, it´s written on spanish, but maybe someone wants to take a look at.


    A tiny speech about the big importance of him and CURE in my life, since i knew CURE, back on 1990.

    You gave me the BEST BIRTHDAY EVER at Coachella Sunday night and I can only hope yours is just as lovely. And hopefully not quite so hot.
    I hope your hand is ok (that was me trying to ask you about it during Push at Coachella) and please don't go playing The Kiss like that any time soon until it heals!

  33. Happy Birthday, my darling Robert. I hope you have a wonderfully perfect birthday. Thanks for eveything. It is because of you I have met lifelong friends that I love to death and couldn't live without.

    Too bad I have food poisoning today and can't really enjoy the day with you.

    LOVE, LOVE, LOVE YOU!

  34. Happy Birthday, Robert. Thanks for staying true to your ideals and doing your best to protect we the fans from being exploited by record companies (no bonus tracks across various countries) and itunes (the Hypnagogic States thing), and for always performing more than any other band I love. You're very inspiring; I'd love to hear more of your views on politics in an upcoming DVD; your comments in Hungary that went against the reporter's anti-Communist/pro-democracy expectations were very interesting. So, you're an admirable intellectually and not just for your art, too.

  39. Happy Birthday Robert! Make it what you want it. Here's a little William Blake to celebrate the day of your birth.

    INFANT SORROW
    My mother groand! my father wept.
    Into the dangerous world I lept:
    Helpless, naked, piping loud;
    Like a fiend hid in a cloud.

    Struggling in my fathers hands:
    Striving against my swadling bands:
    Bound and weary I thought best
    To sulk against my mothers breast

  48. Robert , when you're young , 50 sound a hell of a long way off....
    and then time speeds by and you realize nothing has changed except
    your age......
    Keep your youthful spirit and celebrate the passage of time.....
    Have a Great Day!

  53. How can he be so, so, so, perfect?
    How can he do everything right?
    How can he make our lives happier and better?
    How can he do it?

    I don't care...Maybe I shouldn't know, but I just can say when I met him, he just cured me.

    Happy 50th Birthday, Robert!
