In order to complete Vince CLARKE's biography on the French Wikip├ędia, I would like to know if he has had well-known love stories before marrying his current wife Tracy in 2004 ?

Oh, also : when and how did he met Tracy before marrying her ?

Would someone have some infos on that topic ? (sourced when possible)

I know he was seeing a nurse round about 1987 but I don't know her name or anything about her though

I think very early on he dated Deb Danahay who also ran the Depeche Mode and Yazoo Information Services at that time. Here is a nice little article about that: http://www.electricityclub.co.uk/a-short-conversation-with-deb-danahay/

Yes Deb has an open Diary she post when being with Vince in the DM days all the way up to the end of Yazoo and she she has lots of amazing early photos of them together with DM and Yazoo. She also give walking tours of Baisildon where she lives and where DM started. she is very nice and witty about those early day. I have her as a Facebook friend and enjoy her stories very much.

In an old Smash Hits Q&A from 88/89 it was asked and Vince had a girlfriend called Anne.
Andy's answer was BF called Paul (Hickey I assume)

Anne Swindell, I believe. I read somewhere she had a role managing the tour merchandise side of things for various Mute artists around that time. Her name is in the 'Thank You' credits on Wild!

Wonder what Vince's wife thought when he posed nude in that book a few years ago


Anyone else see that?

I saw the book, and the pic (!)

Ok he wasn't 'posing'...just standing outside on some grass

I thank a lot Polar Piano, Pat.2000, Mike Depaz and Gareth Jones for their investigation efforts.

So, to summarize the facts, we have 2 well-known relationships before his current wife (Tracy HURLEY) : Deb DANAHAY during the early 80's, and Anne SWINDELL from the mid to the late 80's.

Does someone know how and when Vince dated Tracy HURLEY ??

I use to write to Tracy in 1994 when she worked for Reach Media. She started dating Vince around 1995. Tracy is sister is Tonya who is married to Michael Pagnotta who manages all Erasure business and touring.

That is correct, but when Gore's story was over, during the mid 80's, Vince CLARKE dated her and stayed with her until the late 80's.
