*You KNOW his mom is HIGH QUALITY with a beautiful name like Pamela! [Note: website owner's name is also Pamela.]

** Here is what Steve Malins says about Martin's biological father, in his Depeche Mode Biography: "After his 31st birthday [1992], the songwriter was told that his real father is a black American, who'd come over to England in the late 50's. Gore's mother had kept the truth away from the judements [sic] of race-conscious Essex in the 60's. His real father had returned to America and lived in the South. According to a friend of the pop star, when the air met they shared a similar shyness and nevousness." (1999:168)
