Most artists would be excited to walk the red carpet on their way towards induction in the Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame. Most artists. Robert Smith, frontman for legendary goth-rock emo band The Cure, is an exception to the rule. Robert Smith has captivated the internet this week thanks to the complete opposite feeling of emotions most of us would have on an occasion such as Friday's induction ceremony at the Barclay's Center in New York.
Carrie Keagan, Scott's "girlfriend" since they met at last year's Hall of Fame ceremony, hosting her second consecutive Rock & Roll Hall of Fame induction red carpet arrivals, enthusiastically greeted the band asking, "Are you as excited as I am?" For Robert Smith's reaction, and the rest of her red carpet interview, check out the video below. Carrie and I agreed, it's EXACTLY the response any fan of The Cure would WANT and EXPECT from Robert Smith -- click here to listen to Carrie tell us the story herself.
We also got some previews of what to expect from Def Leppard, Stevie Nicks, Radiohead, Janet Jackson, Roxy Music, and The Zombies when the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame special airs on HBO, premiering April 27 at 8:00pm. And, check out Carrie's book, Everybody Curses I Swear!
