The Cure Drummer Andy Anderson lost his battle with cancer aged 68.
He broke the news of his diagnosis on Facebook earlier this month in a characteristically positive and stoic tone. Writing: “No boo-hooing here, just be positive. For me, it’s just another life experience and hurdle, that one has to make, yet another choice in life. Be cool, I most definitely am and positive about the situation.”
His former band Lol Tolhurt broke the news of his passing “Andy Anderson was a true gentleman and a great musician with a wicked sense of humor which he kept until the end, a testament to his beautiful spirit on the last journey.”
He was reportedly surrounded by family and friends.
