One of the claims to fame of original Cure drummer Lol Tolhurst is that he once peed on Billy Idol. Tolhurst says it was an early gig as the opening act for Idol and he blames it on a combination of free beer, a dark restroom and his own “electric bladder.” Tolhurst says Idol was in the men’s room with a young lady and Tolhurst was drunk and couldn’t see. Tolhurst says The Cure were “unceremoniously dumped from the tour” the next day, but he doubts it’s because of that. He says he ran into Idol several years later and Idol seemed unperturbed. Tolhurst has an autobiography called “Cured: The Tale of Two Imaginary Boys” coming out October 11th.
