I know this pictures been up before but it would be great to try and track down and identify the people in this fantastic picture by Kevin Cummins
Maybe if there is enough interest we could recreate the photo with old and new manchetsre bands outside the refurbished venue

If you are in the picture or now of people in it get in touch

If this has been tried before sorry for lack of originality but this picture just captures everything thats great about manchester music, hope, pride, passion, determined, honest, not self serving or posing,
