Never Enough: The Story of The Cure
The Cure emerged in the post-punk 70s and defied all expectations to launch a marathon career marked by hit records and a string of sell-out arena shows. Never Enough traces The Cure's roots in middle-class Crawley, Sussex, and tracks their gradual rise, revealing how their first major album Pornography, almost ended the band well before their multi-platinum career began. Also documents Robert Smith's escape into the Siouxie & The Banshees camp during the 80s, and his experimentation with every drug. His reluctance to return to The Cure would eventually lead to them becoming superstars all across the globe. Never Enough is the first major, definitive biography of these post-punk survivors. In 2004, after numerous personnel changes, the band delivered their Greastest Hits album.
