This one really hurts my heart. Anyone who knows me knows I am a die-hard Depeche Mode fan so upon hearing of the passing of founding member, Andrew Fletcher I was extremely distraught.
Andrew Fletcher, keyboardist and founding member of British electronic band Depeche Mode, has died aged 60.
A statement issued by the band on social media said “We are shocked and filled with overwhelming sadness with the untimely passing of our dear friend, family member, and bandmate Andy ‘Fletch’ Fletcher.”
The band went on to say “Fletch had a true heart of gold and was always there when you needed support, a lively conversation, a good laugh, or a cold pint. Our heart are with his family, and we ask that you keep them in your thoughts and respect their privacy in this difficult time.”
