Richey James Edwards was born on December 22 1966. He grew up at his grandmother in Blackwood until he was 13. Because his parents couldnīt afford to have him at that time. He went in the same grade as Sean at Oakdales Comprehensive school. He continued to read politic history together with Nicky. Richey joined the band after they released theīre first single: Suicide is Painless...because he looked good and had a cool guitar. He played rhythm guitar though he barely could play, James usually played his parts on the records. Richey wrote about half the text to the songs, and designed the covers.
Nobody have seen him since he left Embassy Hotel in London, Feburary 1 1995. If heīs alive or not...nobody knows....but if you ask me I believe he is....
