Simon Price is a Welsh music journalist and DJ, whose book, Everything (A Book About Manic Street Preachers) is acclaimed as the definitive work on the long-running Welsh rock band. He wrote and edited music journalism for Melody Maker for nine years and was formerly the rock and pop critic at the Independent On Sunday. Simon chooses his favourite Manic Street Preachers tracks, and discusses their surprise second act as a three-piece act after the band's lyricist and guitarist Richey Edwards disappeared in 1995.
