Manic Street Preachers - Manic Street Preachers To Release Pictorial History
Welsh rockers Manic Street Preachers are to release a book of photographs charting their 25-year career.
The A Design for Life hitmakers formed in 1986 and went on to find huge mainstream success in the 1990s.
Now they are to publish a tome of up to 10,000 private snaps taken by bassist Nicky Wire - which will include images from the period in the mid-1990s when troubled guitarist Richey Edwards went missing.
Wire tells rock magazine Q, "It's called Death Of The Polaroid: A Manics Family Album. It's the cream of my collection of around 6,000 to 10,000 Polaroid photos. Some of The Holy Bible-era Polaroids are odd because they're from when Richey was hospitalised. There's a shot of me and (frontman) James (Dean Bradfield) that's bleak."
Edwards vanished in 1995 and was officially presumed dead in 2008.
