Depeche gear, or history for sale

In 2011, ex-Depeche Mode virtuoso keyboard player Alan Wilder decided to put up for auction most of the equipment, records, instruments, clothes and memorabilia he collected over the years he spent with the band.

Whether he did that to pay taxes or out of resentment for his DM years, nobody knows (a little bit of both, probably). However, this brilliant musician turned into a salesman just for the length of four interesting videos shot prior to the auction, in which he presented several of the items listed in the catalogue, and that were to be sold shortly afterwards.

Two years later, Alan Wilder put up for sale his s-class Mercedes convertible. Even rock stars can be practical.
