Alan Wilder of Depeche Mode

July 1986: Alan Wilder at the Clift Hotel in San Francisco — waiting for Dave Gahan. Andre, the friendly semi-mohawked bodyguard/handler, is in the foreground, telling me off for taking photos.

But Andre didn’t stop us from getting autographs…depeche-mode-alan-wilder-autograph.jpg

  1. hi mindy, i first saw your photos on – the ’85 robert ones. then i started recognizing them on wikipedia! somehow months later i stumbled on this website. it’s good to hear your story. i’m a teenager myself, around your age then when you first started your rockstar interviews, and also live in the bay area! i began concert photography and journalism a year ago, youve inspired me to do more now. your 80s music days certainly arent that of the average teenager back then.

    all your stories and photos are priceless, thank you so much for sharing them with us

  2. Hi Nancy… Gees you were young… seems to me you went out there and lived the life that many girls back then wished they had of… the edventure, courage and forethought… instead we went to clubs and sat in our rooms listening to LP’s… Amongst all the varied and much diversity of the 80’s Depeche Mode held true to their style… I can list at least 16 songs that were Dam Fine Songs and but most of all they could indeed perform live what an awesome voice… Thank you for triggering so so many memories :)
