Fan Mail Volume 2

July 15, 2023

Ever since the publication of Fan Mail Volume 1 in January, this website still continues to receive "fan mail"- that is, the type that seem to be addressed directly to Dave or Depeche Mode...So, just to clear the air, please remember that this website is not in any way connected with Dave and/or DM, and that I have no way of contacting them!  If you are curious to read what I have received this time around, then check out Fan Mail Volume 2!  As before, private details like names and locations have all been redacted.

Behind the Door, a Secret Place: Dave Gahan's Off-Stage Personality

June 17, 2023

I was inspired by some comments made on an online forum posing the following question: What is Dave's true personality like?  This question was asked because it seems that Dave as a person is actually somewhat of an enigma; for instance on stage, he is very lascivious, flashy, and charismatic.  There is no doubt that he enjoys putting himself out there for all to see and greatly enjoys the attention...when he is performing, that is.  But very few people know what he is like off-stage.  Therefore, I want to see if we can get a better feel for Dave's off-stage personality by observing him in videos where he is not in performance mode.  Read the full article here.
