This is an updated edition of the electrifying biography about four Essex lads who became award-winning stadium superstars and champions of synth pop/rock. This groundbreaking book features in-depth interviews with founder member Vince Clarke, engineer-cum-producer Gareth Jones - who together with Mute Records founder/mentor Daniel Miller - played a pivotal role in shaping Depeche Mode's unique sound over theyears, latter-day producer Mark Bell and contains never before seen interviews with Miller and the band members themselves.With additional input from pivotal suynth pioneers Gary Numan, John Foxx, Karl Baros (ex-Kraftwerk) and Thomas Dolby, this is a unique portrait of a band that almost lost control when their lives went off the rails, singer Dave Gahan's herion addiction nearly killed him and musical mastermind Alan Wilder left for good. Their story is brought right up to date with details of Dave Gahan's solo success, their album sales that top 70 million copies and their record breaking stadium concerts.
