A young Depeche Mode up top, still relevant (well to my generation) and David Gahan, after 37 years of doing the same moves, still has one of the most magnetic and sexy presences on stage (I think it is magnified by his deep voice, choice of attire, and need to move his body) I have had the pleasure of enjoying live many times. -tM

That voice. He sings from his gut. This is soul.

When Baroque meets Contemporary

Bach was my favourite composer to play on the piano, complicated pieces, and sounds translated onto the piano. The whole point was to make Bach sound effortless, simple. This young man does what I tried to do with my hands, he simplifies Bach through dance and gives it a secondary life through his own movement.

Simply beautiful. -tM

You recently confirmed a rumor that Prince proposed to you onstage.
Yes, during the Sign o' the Times Tour. I was playing drums and it was during "Purple Rain." That song always made me cry. We were so into it. The way he played – my God. My eyes were closed a lot during that song. It was just so emotional. Musically, you know when you get to that place where you're just one? We hit that place. And when I opened my eyes, I could see his eyes were opening as well. He turned and looked at me during his solo and that's when he asked me to marry him and I said yes. We were still playing the song.

Did the audience know? Was it a big moment?
Oh no, it was just him and I. We didn't even see anybody else as far as I'm concerned. It was just him and I.

Lovers Rock

Love continued...

I am in the wilderness
You are in the music
In the man's car next to me
Somewhere in my sadness
I know I won't fall apart completely

When I need to be rescued
And I need a place to swim
I have a rock to cling to in the storm
When no one can hear me calling
I have you I can sing to

And in all this
And in all my life

You are the lovers rock
The rock that I cling to
You're the one
The one I swim to in a storm
Like a lovers rock

I am in the wilderness
You are in the music
In the man's car next to me
Somewhere in my sadness
I know I won't fall apart completely

And in all this
And in all my life

You are the lovers rock
The rock that I cling to
You're the one
The one I swim to in a storm
Like a lovers rock

You are the lovers rock
The rock… 

Lovers Rock, Sade
