Sean Moore (musician)

Sean Anthony Moore (born 30 July 1968) is a Welsh musician, who is the drummer and percussionist and occasional trumpet player of the Welsh alternative rock band Manic Street Preachers.[1]

Early years

Born on 30 July 1968 in Pontypool, Torfaen, he attended Oakdale Comprehensive near Blackwood with his cousin James Dean Bradfield, and other future band members Nicky Wire and Richey Edwards.

Roles in the Band

To quote the Manic Street Preachers biography by Simon Price 'Everything (A Book About Manic Street Preachers)', "Sean Moore is quite possibly the only person in rock who doesn't take the Manics seriously". He is the most quiet of the Manics, but according to his band mates their "musical driving force". In their early days, he was often mistaken for a girl due to his long hair, naturally effeminate features (as opposed to Nicky Wire and Richey Edwards' arguably more forced androgynism) and small stature. He is the only current member of the Manic Street Preachers who has not released a solo album.

Personal life

Moore has been married to Rhian since 2000 and they have 3 children.


Moore also has a strong interest in motoring, and set the 22nd fastest lap time around the Nürburgring, Germany, in an Audi RS4 in 8 minutes 25 seconds. Manics singer James Dean Bradfield mentioned this before Motown Junk as part of the annual Rock AM Ring festival at the track. Moore is a fan of Michael Schumacher.
