Hey, so you like the Manic Street Preachers?
Well, I’ve been working on this poetry project at school, and the lyricist for the Manic Street Preachers, Patrick Jones, is one of my subjects. However, because he is such a contemporary poet, I wasn’t able to find any information on him that was cite-able.
So what did I do?
I contacted him through his fan page, and he just wrote me back, saying if I tell him what he should say then he’ll tell me, and I can use that in my project, and he was actually very touched that someone wanted to do a report on him. Actually, the particular poem I’m submitting of his was written about one of his sons when he was really young, and the day I emailed him the kid turned 18! Look at those odds!
