20160114 – News : Basildon’s Depeche Mode frontman Dave Gahan inspired by Bowie (From Echo)

DEPECHE Mode frontman Dave Gahan, has always cited David Bowie’s music as an influence.

The Thin White Duke’s seminal late Seventies albums – Heroes and Low in particular – clearly had a deep effect on the Basildon band, which transformed themselves from hit making synth poppers to stadium rock giants.

Gahan cited Bowie’s influence on his work with Depeche Mode and as a solo artist prior to the release of his album with Soulsavers in September last year. At the time, he said: “David Bowie is the one artist, I would say, who for many decades has always surprised me and also lifted me. I have complete identification with his voice and his melodies.”
