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 quietest of the Manics, but according to his bandmates 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.
Moore has been married to Rhian since 2000 and they have 3 children. Sean is an only child. His cousin is James Dean Bradfield.
Driving And football
Moore also has a strong interest in motoring, and set the 22nd fastest lap time around the Nürburgring, Germany, in an Audi RS 4 in 8 minutes 25 seconds. Manics singer James Dean Bradfield mentioned this before playing "Motown Junk" as part of the annual Rock am Ring festival at the track. Moore is a fan of Michael Schumacher.
