Q is currently marking its 30th birthday with a special issue – out now in print and on digital – but spare a thought for Nicky Wire.
Though the Manic Street Preachers man is joining in our celebrations this month, he reveals he’s only been thrown one solitary birthday badh of his own.
“I’ve only ever had one birthday party, which was when I was about six or seven,” he tells Q’s Niall Doherty.
“I just kind of hated it. People came to my house, I cried, I made everyone switch the lights off and my mum and dad got rid of everyone. I’ve not had one since.”
Get Q’s Birthday Issue now for the full interview and the rest of our celebrations as we mark the Modern Classics released in Q’s lifetime – print copies come with an exclusive CD and posters*.
