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.

EVERTHING also includes Richey's last solo British press interview, the full, previously unpublished transcript of Steve Lamacq's notorious `4REAL' interview, classic phots and unseen rarities, including exclusive pictures from the band's official photographer Mitch Ikeda, and the most comprehensive MSP discography ever published… (more)
