I'm being even cheaper and just hoping someone here will be kind enough to summarise any interesting bits in the book. I am so not paying money for this crap.

Do we think it’s at all possible that this awfulness will convince Nicky to write an ‘official history’, or do we think it would put him off for good?

I'm definitely not encouraging illegal behaviour, but most books can usually be found floating around for free download, so I'll wait with no impatience.

The band haven't got to prove anything to anyone. It's unfortunate the majority of people who'll read SHR's tatty book don't know her character. Even though I'm an early years MSP fan, I'd still ACTUALLY PAY for a Nicky official complete history. Hopefully it's something he'd contemplate in his retirement years, sitting in his garden shed after a productive few hours at the allotment. Actually, I'd prefer the audiobook of it.

Someone posted a page on Facebook. Had to crane my poor neck to read it.
Source was an unnamed member of the road crew.
Richey raised his voice on the bus after the journalists had gone!
Nicky and Richey had a screaming match!
Richey was given the ultimatum if he cut himself again he'd be thrown... Out of the band!

Withdrawn Traces- Bought to you by Hallmark Channel Movies it seems.

No it makes sense. I mean look at the way the evil band covered up the 4Real incident.
Oh wait...

Wow, a couple of friends had a heated disagreement? Fancy that! Must've been Richey's Asburder's.

Sounds like an intervention of sorts to me. Tough love. Three friends concerned about the decline of their other friend's mental health. Nasty bastards. Fancy caring so much they'd do that to poor sensitive Richey! Why couldn't they just watch blood dripping from his gashes and leave him to it. What terrible, terrible people. I'm outraged.

Yeah, I can see the Hallmark Channel "movie" playing out in my head.

25 year old Nicky, who seemed to usually be the one who found Richey in his states, who spoke of checking Richey each night for cuts and talking round in circles for hours at a time trying to understand him on this tour, who had spent the last few years watching his best friend lose his mind and health, and felt he ‘couldn’t reach him any more’... has absolutely no reason to be at the end of his tether and yelling, and would of course be ‘threatening to kick Richey out’ and not ‘massively concerned for what being in the band was doing to Richey’. No. No-one is allowed suffering or feelings in his book except Richey.

My raaaaaage

Oh ffs! It's gonna be so trashy ain't it?!
Writing the thing in the first place goes against thier apparent 'reclaiming Richard' agenda. Surely the memories of him should be kept to Rachel's self?
It's about money and the chance to stoke some controversy to make all involved in this crappy little book feel important.
"and yet I kept my silence, your memory is still mine, no I will not share them". If only the authors had this same dignity.

Band money was used to pay for his stint in the Priory, when they could have left him in the nhs place getting worse. Yeah they didn't care at all did they?

And they had been putting money aside for years for him. Maybe they decided to stop doing so and this upset someone?
Bit bitch but I've said it now!

They stopped I think when he was officially declared dead. Papers said 500,000 had built up or his estate was worth that. Can't remember

Welcome to my world - I have been suspicious since this book was announced. BUT rather than be like SHR I'll admit its just an opinion.

Yeah .. but. Were he to turn up I'm sure they'd sort something without having to be told. Songs are theirs anyway. Richey couldn't add to the music

Another thought praps also cheesed off that her opinion in not wanting to allow JFPL was ignored. All agree or it doesn't happen sort of thing...
