Jason Toop Cooper (born January 31, 1967 in London, England) is an English musician best known for
his work with The Cure.
Unfortunately, most fans are not as receptive to Jason as they were to his predecessor. This may
be due to the fact that he first appeared on the album Wild Mood Swings, which was poorly
received because its material was largely atypical of The Cure. Plus several drummers were auditioning for the job at the time, and so Jason did not in fact play all the drums
on that album. But in all fairness Jason has proven himself an excellent drummer on the latter albums Bloodflowers
and The Cure. Some of his best drumming can be heard in the songs "39", "Bloodflowers", and "Spilt Milk", the omitted
track off Bloodflowers, in addition to his performance
of Pornography on the Trilogy DVD.
On May 15, 2004, Jason married his long-time girlfriend Allison.
