Dave Gahan Depeche Mode
This is a very early shot of Dave. It was shot for Record Mirror around 1980. It was probably one of the first times they were seen by the press. He is very young and he has not quite got the Rock Star look yet. For me it was always more interesting working and meeting these bands before they got the fame. I have quite a few shots of the rest of the band and some other locations. When they are not famous they give you masses of time and as the fame builds - photographers access gets limited.
