Biography

Laurence Andrew “Lol” Tolhurst (born 3 February 1959) is a founding member and former drummer and keyboardist of British band The Cure. He left The Cure in 1989 and was later involved in the band Presence and his current project Levinhurst, a portmanteau of Tolhurst and his wife vocalist Cindy Levinsons’ surnames.

Tolhurst is one of the co-founders of The Cure, and as a he helped write and record the albums Three Imaginary Boys, Boys Don’t Cry, Seventeen Seconds, Faith and Pornography. After the Pornography tour in 1982 Tolhurst assumed keyboard duties.

His birthday coincided with the day of the plane crash that killed Buddy Holly, Ritchie Valens, and The Big Bopper. Tolhurst was five years old when he first met Robert Smith at St. Francis Primary and Junior Schools, and thus began a friendship that would culminate in the formation of The Cure.
