James recalls being given lyrics by Nicky when they were at school together, in the sixth form. Obviously, James and Sean have been close since childhood (unless SHR is also claiming they're lying about being cousins growing up in the same house - which actually wouldn't surprise me if she did). Nicky also fondly remembers the rotten carrot incident, when they were children in school. Which suggests he and James might have been in the same class at primary school. So they were definitely not strangers to each other.

Richey and Sean were older, the year above the other two (for years I thought he was the youngest, but then Sean looked 14 until he was in his mid-40s). So maybe Sean knew Richey better before the other two.

Amazon is now saying the book will be released 28 February, another two week delay.

I so hope that that now deleted Tweet was right and this is because the band are continually challenging this book through the courts.

Thanks for the update, Richeysite.

Yes, Nick and James met at Miss Elizabeth's class when they were 4,5 years old (or thereabouts). There's also a class photo where the two are sitting side by side as little boys (although I won't post it here, sorry).

Probably for the best, because that is dangerously adorable.

SHR needs to know something.

Richey wasn't only a brave,sensitive, eloquent, thinker and poet. Sometimes he could be an immature dick and said and did some really stupid things. How about involving that perspective in your overall view of Richey.

Fucking hell, I love the man to bits but he was, after all, a pretty ordinary young man who happened to be intelligent and wrote some really good lyrics. Her facebook page is embarrassingly CoR territory.

This bit:
We still donít know exactly what happened that night,í says his sister Rachel Edwards. ĎIíve spoken to other people with family members who have gone missing, and normally they have received a much fuller picture of the last known 24 hours of their loved ones.

I wonder if she mentions that Richey phoned his mam after sacking going out with James, the conversation where he told her he didn't fancy going to America.

Thatís fair enough mate. I know FD is run by good people and John who runs MSM is an old acquaintance of mine and a lovely bloke. Didnít mean anything personal by it, I guess Iím just angry that this book is getting any publicity.

Richey was like everyone; he could be a bellend at times. The way SHR talks, he was a misunderstood genius with the soul of a poet and clearly too pure for this world. But, hey, you keep dispelling those myths Sarah!

The idea that this book is about humanising Richey or presenting the Ďrealí him, a rounded person, is just laughable at this point. Itís doing the exact opposite, the things fans have always been accused of. Just with concerning endorsement.

It’s actually really nice to all be so united and into something. Shame it has to be this.
