It's no blasphemous rumour: Depeche Mode's Dave Gahan turns 50

So what do you think Dave Gahan's birthday wish is today for his big 5-0 milestone? To enjoy the silence? Maybe get behind the wheel for a spin? Maybe just to feel loved? Whatever you want, Dave. Afterall, people are people, even when they're '80s icons.

Don't be shocked if Gahan ends up spending the day in the studio, where he and his Depeche Mode mates are working on a new album and planning a world tour.

"We've probably got 20 songs demoed," Gahan told Spin magazine earlier this month about the band's still-untitled album. "Some of the songs are in really good shape, some need some work, but we're definitely on track. We have a deadline of the end of November, and there's no reason we why we won't meet that at the rate we're going."

If you can't wait for November -- who can? -- is celebrating Gahan's 50th birthday by posting not one but SEVEN FULL DEPECHE MODE CONCERTS from 1981 to 2009. Because, and forgive me, everything counts in large amounts.
