On day that has already seen the death of longtime Yes drummer Alan White, word has come from the Depeche Mode camp that founding band member Andy "Fletch" Fletcher has passed away.

"We are shocked and filled with overwhelming sadness with the untimely passing of our dear friend, family member and bandmate Andy "Fletch" Fletcher," Depeche Mode shared on social media. "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.

"Our hearts are with his family, and we ask that you keep them in your thoughts and respect their privacy in this difficult time."
