I think Robert Smith is the only person that South Park would say nothing bad about. That's gotta mean something.

Smith wraps up the three-song set then goes to fetch his bandmates: "I think I have to get the rest of the group with me. Hang on," he tells the crowd. "That's why it's The Cure and not Robert Smith."

THAT is why he's awesome. An acquaintance of mine plays in a pretty well known band. The band is having some issues because of the ego of the lead singer, who essentially told the rest of the band that he is the band, and he regularly threatens to replace them with session musicians. This same acquaintance has also played on tour with a very another well known "band" and while the dynamic much better, there was still no doubt that that singer viewed them as easily replaceable cogs. It's really refreshing to see Smith stand up for his mates like this. I wish more people were able to control their egos as well as he does!

Okay, I was gonna say something snarky along the lines of "Holy shiat, that guy ate Robert Smith!", but after watching the video it's actually pretty darn obvious that he actually gives a shiat about his fans. Good on ya RS!

Wow. Words are failing me here for a second.

One of my measures of how good a band is, is whether or not they sound good live. Well I dunno about the rest of the band, but Robert Smith is a phenomenal performer, and Three Imaginary Boys sounds truly haunting when done acoustic. The rest was great, but that first song just grabbed me. Quite a treat.
