Main Details







More »

Manic Street Preachers are a Welsh alternative rock band, formed in 1986 in Blackwood and consisting of James Dean Bradfield (lead vocals, lead guitar), Nicky Wire (bass guitar, lyrics) and Sean Moore (drums). They are often colloquially known as "The Manics", or simply, "Manics". The first bass player was Miles Woodward, but he ended up leaving the band in early 1988. Later in that same year, after the release of the first single, "Suicide Alley", Richey Edwards joined the band as primary lyricist and rhythm guitarist. The first record of the band, Generation Terrorists, they proclaimed would be the "greatest rock album ever" and sell around sixteen million copies around the world, "from Bangkok to Senegal", and then they would split up. The album did not meet this scale of success and the band went on with their career. Years forward the group became a trio when Edwards disappeared on 1 February 1995. Wikipedia
