Led by Wigan-born Richard Ashcroft, The Verve moved out of underground credibility and into mainstream success with the best-selling Urban Hymns album (1997) and the Stones-sampling Bittersweet Symphony (1997). Verve had a Number One single with The Drugs Don't Work in September 1997. The group disbanded when singer songwriter Ashcroft launched his solo career with Alone with Everybody (2000). Chris Floyd's portrait was made in Richmond Park, overlooking London during a break from recording Urban Hymns at a studio in Chiswick.
