2013-02-08 - Hollywood Reporter (US) - Sunset Marquis: Secrets of Rock 'n' Roll's Wild Hotel

Sunset Marquis: Secrets of Rock 'n' Roll's Wild Hotel

(...)

Conroy: When Dave [Gahan, Depeche Mode’s singer] and I were staying there as a married couple, our bungalow had an adjoining wall with Whitney Houston. And she was rehearsing in her room so loud and for so long that it was driving David crazy. He was like, “Shut it down!” So you’d have these battles of the guy from Depeche Mode trying to shut down Whitney Houston.

(...)

Conroy: When you stay at the bungalows, you park your car kind of in tandem with your neighbors sometimes. And Dave and I were smoking way too much weed, and he got paranoid when Gene Hackman was parking his car at the same time. Dave thought he was stalking him.

2013-10-02 - exhibitiona (US) - Collectors Q & A: Dave Gahan

http://blog.exhibitiona.com/?post_type=collectors&p=17319

Dave Gahan is the lead vocalist and one of the writers of the band Depeche Mode. He maintains a successful career as a solo artist.

How did you first get interested in contemporary art?
I’ve always liked modern art and learned a lot about it in art college.

Do you collect a certain type of art or certain artists?
I collect and buy what I like. For example, 15 years ago, I bought a Marilyn Minter piece because I really liked what she was doing. Since then, she’s become very well known.

Any upcoming projects you’d like us to share?
Currently on a world tour with Depeche Mode.

What upcoming exhibition are you most excited to see?
Unfortunately, I’ve been traveling for the past few months on tour, so I’ve missed out on a lot of things. I would have liked to catch the James Turrell and want to see the Hieronymus Bosch exhibit at some point.

An art book everyone should check out?
Inwards and Onwards by Anton Corbijn.

Artist quote or words to live by?
If your lips are moving, you must be lying.

2015-12-18 - BBC 6 Radio (UK) - Noel Gallagher interview

[Noel Gallagher talks about his story with Dave Gahan in 1995. Excerpt starts right around the 2-hour mark. Typed out by me.]

http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b06r8m4q

(...)
Steve Lamacq: Ever been properly tempted by the harmonica?
Noel Gallagher: I think Oasis might have had it on a couple of tracks, and I have written a couple of tunes which required some kind of harmonica. But it's a weird thing: I remember once when we did an after... Oasis played the Hollywood Bowl or something in the '90s, and Dave Gahan turned up, and we had promised our really good friend at the time, Johnny Depp, that we would see with whom we'd do the Viper Room, and Dave Gahan from Depeche Mode had turned up, and said "Can I get up on stage with you?" And we were, like "Pfff ehhh", so I'm going off guitars, mate, as he pulled out from his powder blue blazer a harmonica. And we were like, "Ohhh", "Ohhhhhh, I don't know what we're gonna do about this." I kinda left him. I said to Liam, "You're gonna wriggle out of this one, I can't."
Steve Lamacq: Not taking the responsibility.
Noel Gallagher: Yeah, but we had a great night out with him, actually. There was the story that he'd overdosed, and it was a thing that went on for[ever] like, "He's dead", and then "He wasn't dead". And me and Liam were in a taxi in LA which is as rare as chocolate rocking horse, a taxi. We were going back to his house, and the taxi driver's saying, "Hey! You three guys look like you're in a band! Bla bla bla!" So we said, "Yeah, we're in Oasis". "Oh!" And he went "I'm in Depeche Mode", and the driver just says, "Didn't your singer just die?!" Dave Gahan said, "No, I'M the singer!" And there was this brilliant, 5-minute, kind of back-and-forward of Dave Gahan having to prove that he was still living, while me and our kid were nutting each other, losing our heads [laughing silently].
Steve Lamacq: If only Dave Gahan had been wearing the full white suit. It could have been "Randall and Hopkirk (Deceased)"!
Noel Gallagher: No, if only we have had the iPhone and had been filming it in the back of the van, because he was going, "No, look mate, I am HIM! I am ALIVE! Am I not, lads?" And we were going, "Well, I don't know, I mean we have been out all night, I'm not sure whether [you're alive], let's check your pulse." And the guy was going, "No, I think I've seen it on the news", he was like "Your singer died, right?"

2016-01-26 - Mojo #268 (UK) - Dave Gahan on David Bowie

[Taken from a website where illegally uploaded PDFs of new magazines can be found.]



DAVID GAHAN
Depeche Mode man.
Servant to the Master.
“Where I came from, you were pretty much told, ‘You’re not going anywhere in life.’ Seeing Ziggy on Top Of The Pops, I found that I could escape. Later, Low, Station To Station and “Heroes” really carried me through. I said to myself, I’d follow that voice anywhere, even when its takes me down. He enabled myself and Martin [Gore] and people like us to understand that we weren’t alone.
Our daughters went to the same school [in New York] so sometimes I’d see him dropping his daughter off in the morning.
When he did a performance of Low at Roseland in 2002, I was lucky enough to be invited. He was just the nicest guy: he shook my hand and said ‘I know you!’
I had been made aware, to be honest, that David wasn’t doing so well. I saw him last year and now I wish I’d gone up to him, just to say thank you again for how much he’d given me.
★ is his strongest album in many years – like Low, it takes you somewhere. Fusing jazz ideas with modern technology is consistent with what he’s always done. He always took the risk. I’m never gonna stop playing his records.”

2016-05-20 - The Damned: Don't You Wish That We Were Dead on BluRay/DVD:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GVI8SOt3OvI
http://noisey.vice.com/es/blog/the-damned-documentary-clip

(...)

For the past several years, director Wes Orshoski (who also acted as the film's producer, writer, cinematographer and editor) has been working on a warts'n'all, band-authorized documentary about The Damned (...).

(...)

The film draws on archival footage and interviews with all four original Damned members as well as commentary from the likes of Chrissie Hynde (Pretenders), Mick Jones (The Clash), Steve Diggle (Buzzcocks), Nick Mason (Pink Floyd), Dave Gahan (Depeche Mode), Lemmy Kilmister (Motorhead), Jack Grisham (T.S.O.L.), Keith Morris (Black Flag/Circle Jerks/OFF!), and Dexter Holland (The Offspring), as well as live performances between 2011 to 2014.

(...)

Recording of Dave's bit in the documentary: https://www.instagram.com/p/BGNLaAvRouU/

Dave's quote: "[...] accessible, and it was doable. I didn't feel right at school, and I was told at that school repeatedly, "Gahan, you'll amount to nothing." And that seemed like it was going to be kind of true. Dave Vanian was the first performer that I saw where I was like, "I can fucking do that." A mate of mine came to see us a couple of years back, we started talking about The Damned. He was like, "Now it all makes sense. Everyone was always saying like you got a bit of Jagger in you, a bit of this, a bit of that... But it's Dave Vanian, innit?" I was like, "Yep! That's it." "

Jennifer Skliás-Gahan, David Gahan And CSSMA Presenting 1st Annual Art. Music. Party! At The Montauket
Nicole Barylski

On Thursday, July 21st, actress Jennifer Sklias-Gahan and Depeche Mode lead singer/guitarist David Gahan will join forces with the Church Street School for Music and Art (CSSMA) for the first annual Art. Music. Party! at The Montauket Hotel in Montauk.

The family-friendly Hamptons benefit will toast to the nonprofit art school, raise much needed funds and commemorate the organization's 26-years of offering music and art education for the New York City community and beyond.

"We are so grateful to have found Church Street School for Music and Art for our daughter! In a world where the commercial result is highly prioritized, many times at the cost of quality, it is crucial to have a school for the arts that understands that to find your artistic best you should explore through process, jump in, take risks (even if they might seem messy) and make mistakes- as this often ends up leading the way to our greatest moments and our greatest creative inspirations," said Jennifer Skliás-Gahan, CSSMA Parent & Art. Music. Party! Artist Co-Chair. "A place that keeps supporting you and feeding your confidence to keep reaching.... that's what Church Street School has given our daughter. It's such a privilege to support an organization that is so devoted to giving to our community with such a spirited heart!"

From 3:30 to 6:30 p.m., attendees will enjoy live music from Montauk-based groove/rock band, Jettykoon, as well as CSSMA students and special guests, food by Saltbox Restaurant, and a special collaboration between Jon Krasner and Danny Ye and Chef Nadia Ovalles, imaginative art projects for all ages, and also have the chance to leave with incredible raffle prizes like a guitar signed by Depeche Mode and the band's full vinyl catalogue, VIP tickets and a studio tour to Late Night with Seth Meyers, and much more.

Church Street School was founded in 1990 with the mission of providing individual experiences and nurturing personal discovery to support students' inspired thinking and confidence. The not-for-profit is the sole school for the arts located in Lower Manhattan, and they "strive to serve as community center for the neighborhood: a safe place where students, parents, children and neighbors share creative experiences, where kids play and grow together, where those with the challenge of disabilities find a place to shine." Church Street School's goal is to present reasonably priced, high caliber programming for everyone.

Tickets begin at $50.
