Reeves WILL be inducted with The Cure

When it was announced that The Cure had been selected for induction into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame, the list of Cure members eligible was missing 4 names - Reeves Gabrels, Andy Anderson, Phil Thornalley, and Matthieu Hartley. On Monday it was revealed that the Hall had reconsidered and Reeves will now be inducted with the rest of the band. Before this change was made, I'm told there was a good chance that the band might decide to skip the event, but are now more open to it. Still not confirmed but looking better. Maybe.

Congratulations to Reeves, and Thank You to those who made the change possible! Unfortunately, Andy, Phil and Matthieu are still excluded.

Fun Fact from @NickDBambach: "The Cure is now one of the few bands inducted with 10 or more members inducted. Only Parliament/Funkadelic (16) and The Grateful Dead (12) have more members inducted than The Cure [The E Street Band and The Comets also had 10 members inducted too]."
