Title: Fans Queue Up for Hours To Meet The Manics
Publication: Glasgow Evening Times
Date: Wednesday 16th July 2003


Hundreds of Manic Street Preachers fans queued for hours to meet their idols at a Glasgow record store last night.

The Welsh rockers held a signing session to promote their new album at the Virgin Megastore in Buchanan Street.

More than 300 fans queued throughout the day for a chance to meet singer James Dean Bradfield, bass player Nicky Wire (left) and drummer Sean Moore.

The trio signed copies of new album Lipstick Traces, a collection of B-sides, cover versions and rare tracks.

A spokesman for Virgin Megastore said: "The first fans turned up at 5am and we were queued round the block by lunchtime."

Among the album's covers are tracks from Nirvana, Guns 'N' Roses, Art Garfunkel and Burt Bacharach.

Lorrae Barclay, 15, from Kilmarnock was first in the queue.

She said: "I got out of my sickbed to be here but I wouldn't have missed this for the world. I got sunstroke at T in the Park but I was determined to be the first here. I have been into the Manics since I was seven."

Her friend Joseph Brown, 16, also from Kilmarnock, said: "I got the band to sign my guitar. The Manics are the best band around and it was worth the wait."
