"Four of them (all except Emma) saw an advertisement for a girl group in 'The Stage,' the must-read periodical for star-struck British would-be entertainers, in March 1993.... They knew each other already, because they were always turning up at the same auditions, for musicals or shows or whatever.... By the summer, the group Touch was formed, with the four of them and a girl named Michelle. She subsequently left because of an illness in her family and because she wanted to go to college. After more auditions, Emma — whom Victoria knew — was brought in. They all lived together in a house west of London. Their managers at the time provided them with songs, which the girls hated, and tried to make them all dress the same. They knew from the beginning that the managers were no good. When the managers tried to tie them down to what they felt was an unacceptable contract, in October 1993, the girls walked out, paying off the managers' expenses with a loan. Just before then they had changed their name to #SpiceGirls." From the July 10th, 1997 issue of @RollingStone. Photograph by Tim Roney
