This is gorgeous. I'm so glad he's acknowledging this site! Good on him.ReplyDelete
Reeves and his crew have been incredibly kind and helpful over the past year or so. Great people. Hope everyone who can, goes out and gives him a great send off.Delete
I'm happy for Reeves! but this is not a site for the cure and not Reeves Gabrels?ReplyDelete
COF is about "The Cure and all things related to The Cure"... So yes! It is also a site for Reeves... It became that, since he went into The Cure-sphere for real!Delete
Reeves is a member of The Cure. Just like with Roger, Perry, Pearrl, Lol, Andy, etc, I post news of their shows, music, other activities.Delete
I know you're not a fan, eric, but others are. Just as you love Porl/Pearl, there are some who aren't. You wouldn't want me to not post Pearl news, would you?
As I've always said, if you see a story you have no interest in, it's incredibly easy to just scroll down and skip it.
Support him, Buy full price ticket and pay for CDs. Especially merch goes directly to him. BTW I think Jeremy (RS guitar tech) plays with Eden's band in Tunbridge Wells.ReplyDelete
Totally agree. I wouldn't even use the discount if I were going. But I think it's very nice of them to offer this to fans who might not be as familiar with Reeves' other work. Also nice for those who would love to go or buy a CD, but who might not have the extra money right now.Delete
I've been to two of his shows so far (St. Albans & Guildford) and both occassions he put on a great show and if you're polite will happily chat and sign stuff.ReplyDelete
Newcastle also a great show. Even got some Tin Machine stuff signed - top bloke.ReplyDelete
My friend met Reeves and asked about working with Cure and he talked like it was a job … and seemed prouder of his work with other artistsReplyDelete
Let's not kid ourselves he's doing anything other than helping out. There hasn't been even the mildest of hints from RS that this line-up has or ever will write or record.Delete
So far, as far as we're aware, 'Wrong Number' is the only proper Cure track (excluding other collaborations) RG has played on. Hardly a great body of work to make meaningful comparison with his back catalogue & so far he's playing mainly other people's compositions live, so fair enough. I also asked him about Cure work, and although he wouldn't give anything away he sounded very positive, so we will have to wait and see.Delete
I apologize! I wanted to be meaReplyDelete
I met RG at Newcastle too, very courteous man, signing both cure and Bowie material (and a photo I took at RAH TCT!). The cure is Roberts concern, any news regarding the cure will come from RS. But as RG said, when it appears quiet there is often something happening...ReplyDelete
