Vince Clarke and Geoffrey Dicker

Vince Clarke is not just a music legend, but he is also a music god!  Having the ultra cool honor of being in not one but THREE of the best (and most influential) bands of the 1980s, Depeche Mode, Yazoo and Erasure, he also does DJ gigs on the side!  Whoa!  I met Vince last weekend and despite all of his accomplishments, has managed to stay super cool towards fans!  He took a photo with me, I told him I loved him and that was that.  A perfect encounter, according to G.

Alison Moyet of Yazoo!

Exciting news for fans of Yazoo (or Yaz, as they were known in the US).  On September 27, 2010, the duo of Alison Moyet and Vince Clarke will be releasing a live 2-cd set from their 2008 tour called “Reconnected Live.”  There will be a deluxe package featuring the CDs bound with a 32 page hard back book as well as a standard edition with just the 2 cds and it will also be available as a digital download.  Sadly, a live DVD is not part of the set and it’s an extra bummer for me, since I was interviewed for a documentary that was supposed to accompany the DVD. I even signed a release form, which means that somewhere out there, my autograph is sitting in a pile whose owners are unaware of its value!

See the track list for “Reconnected Live” after the jump.
