Bassist of the band the cure, robert smith's best friend. He had been kicked out in 1982, Smith and him got in a fight at the pub and they just grew apart, later Smith asked for him back in 1985 to make <i>The Head On The Door</i> and he hasn't been kicked out since then, he was once replaced during the Wish tour because he became extremely sick and Roberto Suave replaced him, but that's it, seems like he's there to stay!
"I think Simon Gallup is amazing, the bassline for The Hanging Garden" is wonderful"
