10. Manic Street Preachers

The Manic Street Preachers have not only survived the loss of a band member but the mystery of what happened. Richey Edwards was a guitarist in the band and went missing back in 1995. He has been presumed dead due to his car being found near the Severn Bridge, but because his body has never been found there are many fans who still believe he is alive.
