I heard some sad news…

Laura’s Blog Entry

“Darrell Ives, who worked personal security for Depeche Mode since the early 1990s, very sadly passed away on Friday, February 16th, 2007.

As some fans will know, Darrell spearheaded a campaign with The Edwards Foundation during “Touring The Angel” to auction off rare Depeche Mode memorabilia to aid relief efforts in Africa.”

I have been touched by the many postings on the Depeche Mode message board about Darrell. It is amazing to me that a man who was the biggest obstacle between the fans and the band was so loved by those fans. There are some very sweet stories about fan’s interactions with him here. I am proud to be a part of such a caring and respectful bunch of fans. I am constantly reminded of the very cool community that exists surrounding the band and their music.
