Depeche Mode founding member Andy “Fletch” Fletcher has died, the band announced. “Fletch had a true heart of gold and was always there when you needed support, a lively conversation, a good laugh, or a cold pint,” the members of Depeche Mode wrote in a statement. “Our hearts are with his family, and we ask that you keep them in your thoughts and respect their privacy in this difficult time.” A source close to the band tells Pitchfork that Fletcher died of natural causes. The musician was 60 years old.
