I wrote an article for the Huffington Post about Richey Edwards to commemorate the 18th anniversary of his disappearance. Here’s a snippet:
In the years since his death, Richey has almost become the indie-rock Elvis. To this day, sightings are reported of him in far away destinations like hippie communes in India. Personally, I don’t know what to believe about Richey’s whereabouts. He was certainly clever enough to disappear completely and never be found. Others aren’t so optimistic. Edwards’ car was found abandoned near the Severn Bridge in southwest Wales, a popular place for suicides.
