What Was Depeche Mode's Andy Fletcher's Net Worth When He Died?

On May 26, 2022, members of the influential English new wave band Depeche Mode announced on their official Twitter account that founding member and keyboardist Andy Fletcher had died at the age of 60. "We are shocked and filled with overwhelming sadness with the untimely passing of our dear friend, family member, and bandmate Andy 'Fletch' Fletcher," the statement read. Though the tweet did not disclose Fletcher's cause of death, Rolling Stone later confirmed that Fletcher died of natural causes.

Fletcher, who formed Depeche Mode alongside current members Martin Gore and David Gahan, was known for his contributions to the band's moody pop music, which heavily featured synthesizers in lieu of guitars, per Rolling stone. Following the release of their 1981 debut album "Speak & Spell," Depeche Mode had a string of top-10 hit singles and records in the U.K. and elsewhere, and their later album "Songs of Faith and Devotion" reached No. 1 in the U.S. in 1993 (via AllMusic). In 2020, Fletcher, along with the other members of Depeche Mode, was inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame. After a decades-long career in music, Fletcher had a significant net worth by the time that he died.
