I've just caught up with this lovely tribute to Pete Shelley. It starts at 2.39.00 and features original drummer John Maher:

Very true - there are still a few of the 50's originals out there gigging.

On Thursday morning (Dec. 13), news broke that The Cure will be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame next year. Lead singer and co-founder Robert Smith called in to the SiriusXM Volume "Feedback" morning show to share some other great news.

"Seeing all these new bands—I’ve listened to some of these bands and met so many of them that it’s kind of inspired me to do something new," he said. "So, yes, we’re going in about six weeks time to finish off what will be our first album in more than a decade. It’s very exciting times for us all around."

And lots of the bands that said that The Stones were too old when they were playing in their 40s are now playing with their bands in their 60s!

Yeah well, they've proven that age has nothing to do with being able to rock (& roll)!  :)

A first for me at tonight's Theatre of Hate show - a Kirk-free instrumental.

Kirk went off mid-set for a "comfort break". The band explained that he'd had some, ahem, "digestive tract issues" today after being "Mickey Finned". A high energy version of "Wipe Out" followed until Kirk returned triumphantly!

The man's a trouper. Not only was the set finished, but a storming three-song encore concluded the evening's proceedings.

Great stuff.

Richards added that “it was interesting to play sober,” while Wood noted: “We’re weaving [guitar parts] a lot more conscientiously now. We’re much more aware of the gaps and the spaces between. We’re in our seventies, but we’re still rocking like we’re 40-year-olds, you know?”
