James Dean Bradfield

Since forming at school in Blackwood, South Wales, Great Britain, in 1986, the Manic Street Preachers has become one of the all-time great alternative, mainstream British rock groups. Furthermore, the band is still going strong today and released its 12th Top 10 album, "Futurology", in July 2014. 

Over the years the band has won numerous awards in the UK (including seven NME Awards and three Brit Awards) and has also scored a trio of Number 1 singles. Founder member, lead vocalist and lead guitarist, James Dean Bradfield is a loyal Marshall user and we're proud to have him as part of the family.
