Last night in Los Angeles, Depeche Mode frontman Dave Gahan was feted at the Grammys’ seventh-annual MusiCares MAP Fund benefit concert, where he was honored with the Stevie Ray Vaughan Award for his “commitment to helping other addicts with the addiction and recovery process.” In addition to sets by Jane’s Addiction, Ozomatli and Paramore, Gahan himself took the stage, performing eight songs: Joy Division’s “Love Will Tear Us Apart,” David Bowie’s “Cracked Actor,” Mark Lanegan’s “Low” and the Damned’s “New Rose,” plus solo songs “Dirty Sticky Floors” and “Saw Something,” and Depeche Mode hits “I Feel You” and “Personal Jesus” — the latter of which featured a guest turn by bandmate Martin Gore.
Above, you can see Gahan performing “Love Will Tear Us Apart”; below are clips of the rest of the set — including two different versions of the “Personal Jesus” performance — plus Gahan’s acceptance speech, introduced by Aerosmith’s Steven Tyler.
