Richey James Edwards was the principal lyricist from the band Manic Street Preachers and is remembered for his troubled career as well as for his mysterious disappearance in 1995. He has been declared “presumed dead” with suspicions that he committed suicide by jumping from a bridge, as his abandoned car was found near a notorious suicide location in Southwest England. Edwards had little in the way of musical ability (he often mimed playing the guitar during live shows), but his contributions to the band were key to its success. He is also renowned for an incident in 1991 when a music journalist questioned the band’s authenticity. Edwards responded by carving the phrase “4 Real” into his arm with a razor. He is considered to be a member of the “27 Club” for musicians who died when they were 27 years old.
