The Manic Street Preacher's story is one of the most dramatic and unusual in recent rock history and EVERYTHING is its definitive telling. Simon Price has followed the band at close quarters since their inception, and her recounts their extraordinary tale. Using first-hand recollections and anecdotes from the band, their friends, colleagues, fans and fellow musicians, EVERYTHING traces the Manics career from their childhoods in the politicised, strike-torn mining valleys of South Wales, through the outrage, violence and mutilation which surrounded the self-styled Generation Terrorists' early days as enfants terribles of rock, the tragic and mysterious, vanishing of iconic songwriter Richey Edwards, their triumphant comeback with a Design for Life' and their unlikely status as Number one-selling, Brit award-winning darlings of the music industry, concluding with the release of the multi-platinum album THIS IS MY TRUTH TELL ME YOURS. EVERTHING also includes Richey's last solo British press interview, the full, previously unpublished transcript of Steve Lamacq's notorious 4REAL' interview, classic photos and unseen rarities, including exclusive pictures from the band's official photographer Mitch Ikeda, and the most comprehensive MSP discography ever published.
Good condition., slight scuffing to the cover's edges.
