Hence, in the history of Spice Girls
begin differences. Victoria insists that she has led her off in the group, even though Bob Herbert argues that Emma had been recommended by a teacher of singing, and Victoria are up to that time had never met. Girls
say they were given a ready repertoire and was forced to wear the same costumes, Herbert assured that he never demanded that the girls
dress the same way as their dissimilarity was a key part of its marketing strategy. Only one point between them, there is no contradiction: the numerous sessions organized by Herbert eventually led to the signing of contracts with well-known masters of studio work by Richard Stannardom, Matt Rowe and Eliot Kennedy. Quintet gradually gained good experience in writing songs and at the same time the girls
began to show its character. First they refused to name Touch and became known as Spice Girls
