Richey Edwards News
Richard James Edwards, guitarist and songwriter for iconic Welsh rockers, Manic Street Preachers, was last seen crossing the Severn Bridge at 2:55am after going missing from the Embassy Hotel in central London. His car found close by to a well known suicide spot, however, his missing persons case with the Metropoltian Police has still not be solved to this day and his case remains open.
Some say Edwards staged his own disappearance, whilst others say he was plagued with depression and other mental health issues that he simply could not cope with.
Richey last contributed, musically, to Manic Street Preachers with their 1994 album ‘The Holy Bible’. Despite his disappearance, the band carried on without him as a three piece. James Dean Bradfield, Nicky Wire and Sean Moore have since released several critically acclaimed albums, with Bradfield and Wire also releasing solo records.
It’s not known who will play Richey, or if Bradfield, Wire or Moore will be directly involved with the movie.
