    Blasting on to the scene in 1991 in a mess of makeup and spray painted slogans, Manic Street Preachers made their debut in hopes of selling20 million copies then a band implosion. They certainly didn't do that, but the Welsh band have become one of Britain's most legendary bandsof the 90s. Though the band was lead by the riff slinging James Dean Bradfield, the band's heart was in Richey James Edwards. He couldn't writeor play music if his life depended on it, but his brilliantly dark lyrics are what crafted the band's 1994 bleak and raw third album "The HolyBible", a true classic made with help of Bradfield's musical talents. The ex-alcoholic, self-mutilating Edwards disappeared shortly after, still leftunfound. But with bassist Nicky Wire taking over lyrical duties the band pulled through for the extremely successful "Holy Bible" follow-up"Everything Must Go". They still continue without Richey James Edwards to this day, though the sheer mix of The Clash and Guns N Rosesintensity of early Manics is long gone. « hide
