Robert in Dom Joly's kitchen

Posted by Dom Joly on Facebook: "Robert Smith of The Cure drunk, in my kitchen" (Thanks Pete)

The Guardian has the story behind the photo (from 2001): "For a spoof documentary going out on Channel 4 on December 28, Being Dom Joly, he managed to get Robert Smith to pretend to be his best man. "He was totally into Trigger Happy, which was so cool. We went for a drink afterwards and he was such a nice bloke. I was thinking: 'I can't believe I'm having a drink with Robert Smith, my hero.'

"Then we ended up here which was even more incredible. I had to hide the photos of me looking like him. We were chatting and drinking for hours, and I was thinking, 'This is just too cool.' Then it turned at about four in the morning. I started thinking: 'I wish Robert Smith would leave. I've got to get up in the morning!' "

(Thanks to Ronan for remembering this and finding the article)
