Musicians Depeche Mode posted the first post on Instagram since June 18, in which, on behalf of Andy Fletcher’s family, they asked for support from a charity close to the deceased. Now they started with a thank you.
Colleagues from Depeche Mode: Andy Fletcher passed away without prolonged suffering
“We wanted to take a moment to appreciate the deluge of love for Andy that we’ve seen from all of you in the last few weeks. It’s been amazing to see all your photos, read your words and see how much Andy meant to all of you. As you can imagine, it was for us a few at least strange, sad, disorienting weeks. But we saw and felt all your mio and support, and we know that Andy’s family too “- the musicians began their entry. Later they admitted that they had known for several weeks why ruin their friend from the band, but only now – according to the decision of Fletcher’s relatives – reveal the cause of his death:
Andy suffered an aortic dissection at home on May 26. So, even though it was way too early, he passed away naturally and without prolonged suffering.
Dave Gahan and Martin Gore also mentioned Fletcher’s farewell ceremony, which they called “celebrating his life”.
Co-founder of Depeche Mode died on May 26 at the age of 60. He did not write lyrics or compose music for the hits of “dispatch”, but for several years he was an important element and a good spirit of the band. “‘Fletch’ had a real heart of gold and was always there when help was needed, a lively conversation or a cold pint” – wrote Gore and Gahan announcing his death.
