Renaissance Hotel

They were the most rock and roll people we saw all the time we were there really. The hotel was packed with very minor industry hangers on (er, and us) but the Manics gave it the official festival seal of approval.

Nicky was very tall and thin, the other two are very short and fat.

We saw them checking in on Saturday morning and wondered - did they have the room reserved the whole time, or was there some kind of "hot bedding" system in place with the acts from the previous day? Did the Manics have to sleep in Travis' damp patches?

Celeb spotting action, not actual stalking. Gotta catch them all! Originally a popular feature of my site popex.com, so mostly from the early '00s. 99% contributed by other people. Hopefully now with some bonus location content that was lost for a while.
