What are your earliest LA memories of the band?
Here are some pics of us at the Wherehouse record signing event/riot in 1990. We skipped school and almost got trampled by the mob, but we made it in, met the band and got a few good pics.
My best friend, Tanaz, and I bonded over our love for Depeche Mode when we met in the 5th grade. We spent the next 32 years going to every Depeche Mode concert in LA, camping out for tickets, getting stuck in a riot, going to DM conventions, sneaking into their movie premiere in Century City, winning record release party tickets, going back stage at Dodgers Stadium, randomly bumping into Dave at Chin Chin and Matsuhisa (local restaurants), stalking the band outside of the Sunset Marquis Hotel when they stayed there, and doing everything humanly possible to connect with the band.
