In 1993 Richard Ashcroft, the lead singer of The Verve, a four-piece band from the North of England, declared, 'HIstory has a place for us. It may take us three albums, but we will be there.' Four years later The Verve recorded their ground-breaking third album, 'Urban Hymns,' and his prediction came true. But during those four years, the band took a wild ride characterized by its members' drug-taking, outrageous hedonistic tour behavior, depressions, and internal conflicts. Decadence, poor mental and physical health, and interpersonal rifts caused the band to split up for a time in 1995, shortly after the notorious Lollapalooza show in Kansas City. But now, after their reconciliation and two hit singles, they look bigger than ever.
