From Lol's personal photo collection

3 photos from Lol Tolhurst's personal collection, never been published before (or so I was told, though #1 & #2 were included in 'Ten Imaginary Years'), and not included in 'Cured'. A nice bonus for CoF readers. All photos are by Richard Bellia. Thank You to Lol for sharing them with us, and to Quercus for providing them.

'Cured' will be released on Sept. 22nd in the UK, and autographed copies can be ordered from Waterstones. Or bring your copy of 'Cured' to one of these events and meet Lol and have it signed in person.
