Trivia

The Depeche Mode fan tradition of the audience waving their arms in unison during the song "Never Let Me Down Again" started with the Pasadena performance shown in "101". In 2006, on the "Music For The Masses" documentary DVD, Martin Gore said: "Dave [Gahan] often says that he doesn't know how he came up with the idea, when we were playing at the Rose Bowl. But he just, like, started waving his arms in the air; and, uh, you know, the whole crowd, just...in unison, started doing it back." See more »

David Gahan is so hot
20 October 1999 | by (Atlanta, GA) – See all my reviews

I think this film is great as a documentary and as a musical event but for me one of the BIGGEST selling points PERIOD is that David Gahan, DM's lead singer, is at his absolute HOTTEST in this movie. Not only is he looking incredible in those white jeans and black leather jacket, but his singing performances are all-out awesome, especially when you consider that most people think of DM as leaning heavily on electronics, when in fact's Gahan's voice has been one of the main carrying forces. If you're a DM fan, especially if you were one during this particluar late 80s time period, you MUST see this!
