One of the first artists to pay tribute was Lol Tolhurst, founding member of the Cure, who said: “I knew Andy and considered him a friend. We crossed many of the same pathways as younger men. My heart goes out to his family, bandmates, and DM fans.”

Yazoo’s singer Alison Moyet, who recorded on the same record label as Depeche Mode, said she knew Fletcher from childhood: “I have just heard the news. Since we were 10. Same estate. Class mates to label mates. He who kept faith with all the old gang and they with him. It doesn’t compute. Fletch. I have no words.”

The official social media account of Pet Shop Boys posted: “Fletch was a warm, friendly and funny person who loved electronic music and could also give sensible advice about the music business.”*5
