Exactly.

And wasn't Richard III also name-checked on that song? There is an abundance of Richards.

Quiet you lot, this may give enough evidence for SHR to write another book!

On top of that Richard was separated from his natural mother shortly after he was born and endured a challenging home life without the love of a natural parent.
That part is news to me. Was Richey adopted/cared for by a relative or something similar?

There is literally no other mention of that anywhere in any other publication. Richey himself said his childhood was fantastic. Didn't the family live with his grandmother until he was 13? Certainly no mention of an adoption.

Three Richard's? Well there's certainly 2 Dick's involved with this book

That's referring to the author Richard.

Thanks! Although this does mean I've got an image of the book being full of "So Rich, that's Richey Edwards hung out with me Rich F, that's the one who's writing it" type paragraphs.

Can we please comment on the important aspect of this, which is that Richey used to piss in the sink at university.

Where did others go?

I used to urinate out of my window to where the stoners used to gather and make noise in the middle night when everyone else was trying to sleep.
