The Real Rock & Roll
Hall Of Fame: The Cure
Down singer and big cure fan Phil Anselmo on the British gloomsters who sold post-punk to America.
Phil Anselmo: I was a teenager, living in Texas, when I was first turned on to The Cure by a friend. I’ll be honest, it’s two of the older records that most absorbed me: Seventeen Seconds definitely my number one, and then Faith would be number two. I like certain songs off all their records, but those two in particular grabbed me.
