ray winstone 12:53 - Thanks mate as is yours.

To be honest that's why it worked you didn't mention DM, they literally switch off when that's mentioned if out n about, I never mention it.

Thanks to everyone else re: my story, that's one of a few, reading all the posts and media about Fletch I realise how lucky I was.

I actually get on with Martin the best, In Bologna years ago I was walking backstage and Martin was waving me over, I went over and he said "Come and sit in here" ie their dressing room, Now I've worked with enough DJ's and bands to know the time before a gig is 'Me' time so I said are you sure, so I scraped along the wall past the big Italian security guard who was cracking up and I sat with Martin in the dressing room talking mainly about the forest fires in Cali at the time just a lovely genuine bloke.

I generally am ok apart from the one time I invited the top madam in Madrid back to the hotel but that really is another story! :)
I denied I ever met her of course even though she said I gave her her backstage pass..ag ag ag!

Yes, the same tour đź‘Ť

Re: DM's Andy Fletcher RIP
That’s from the same tour isn’t it. It’s good that now they (TT) are getting getting the credit they deserve. Just a shame Mark Hollis isn’t here to witness it.

Really pleased when the Live In Montreux dvd came out, great sound quality and a great set list from that time.

Re: DM's Andy Fletcher RIP
Wilko - Yeah I saw Talk Talk in 1986 @ Hammersmith. Easily one of the best gigs I’ve witnessed.

I would say even though nowhere near as successful, Talk Talk are just about more influential than Depeche Mode. Two absolutely incredible bands.

Re: DM's Andy Fletcher RIP
Not really a fan of their early poppy stuff. After Vince Clarke left they struggled and the UK pretty much dumped them.

The US and rest of Europe didn’t . Violator and Songs of Faith and Devotion are brilliant albums . Certainly in my top 20 of all time.

I was watching some Talk Talk on YouTube on my evening tea break at work then got a message about Andy Fletcher when I got back on the shop floor. Saw Talk Talk live in 1986 at Bradford and it's top of my list of gigs that I'd like to experience again.

Re: DM's Andy Fletcher RIP
Very sad at the news of Andrew Fletcher's death .

Never met him but been a big fan of DM since Just Can't Get Enough was released, love the darker stuff Barrel Of A Gun my favourite.

Got to see them once at Hyde Park.

Andy seems to be a top bloke, generous and caring, RIP fella!

Re: DM's Andy Fletcher RIP
Lovely story Def.

DM were always on the edge of my 80s sphere of music.

The plinky plonky early 80s were good fun.. See You just a gorgeous song for an early teen to pull girls to.

Dipped in and mostly out of their stuff since

Love precious and enjoy the silence- but need to catch up on their back catalogue.

Where do i start?

Re: DM's Andy Fletcher RIP
I'm still numb. Imagine being a fresh faced 17 year old. Going to our price, running to the bus to get home with the latest Depeche album in your hands. Putting the needle on the record, black celebration. 4 months later and you're at Wembley arena, full of booze waiting for your heroes to come on stage. 25 concerts later, were in Amsterdam and I'm still feeling that same excitement. Last night something inside me died. You know that the weirdest thing was I went for a run, randomly plucked a t shirt off the washing line and it was my Depeche one. Two hours later one of my heroes had gone. Met him once at the Astoria, bought him a beer, chatted about football, didn't buy me one back, but that didn't matter. This man was part of a band that provided me with the soundtrack to my life, I was dumbstruck and grateful that this legend accepted a beer from me, Tony fucking Osborne. Thank you Andrew Fletcher, you were the glue that kept the greatest band ever, together. I salute you. Thank you for the music, rest in peace.

Re: DM's Andy Fletcher RIP
Unbelievably sad news.

Like many on here, been a fan since 81 and managed to see them quite a few times over the years. Never met him, but did see him driving down the A12 near Colchester in a BMW Z3 (must have been early 2000's). I remember the number plate being 8ONG.

Losing him and fellow Essex boy Mark Hollis within a couple of years and both being so young is very depressing.

*I assume NS has told his usual story*

Re: DM's Andy Fletcher RIP
By all accounts sounded a nice chap.

Whilst never a huge fan, I thought all a bit gay synthy pop in the 80s, there later stuff was good. Walking in my Shoes is the nuts

He's joined that ever increasing orchestra up in the sky.
