The Manic Street Preachers will hold a private vigil tomorrow (01FEB05) to pay homage to their guitarist RICHEY EDWARDS, who went missing exactly 10 years ago.

Frontman James Dean Bradfield, bassist Nicky Wire and SEAN MOORE will remember their pal Edwards - who hasn't been seen since his car was discovered parked near the River Severn in Wales in 1995 - behind closed doors, because they don't deem it appropriate to share the occasion with fans.

Wire says, "We'll talk to each other and remember something funny or sad.

"It's a personal thing between us and his mum, dad and sister."
