Richard Ashcroft

Richard Ashcroft, la nouvelle ferveur du rock ? C’est ce qu’on croyait lorsqu’il a sorti "Urban Hymns" avec The Verve... On attend toujours l’éclair de génie qui fera vibrer en nous le souvenir ému de "Drugs don’t work"

As the frontman for the epic British drone-pop band the Verve, Richard Ashcroft proved himself the spiritual descendant of rock & roll icons like Mick Jagger and Jim Morrison — rivetingly charismatic, menacingly serpentine, and possessed of an almost shamanic intensity, he embraced and articulated the anthemic fervor of rock music with a power and eloquence unparalleled by any of his contemporaries. Ashcroft was born September 11, 1971 in the Wigan suburb of Billinge, attending Upholland Comprehensive
