Alan Wilder Joins Depeche Mode for "Somebody" at Royal Albert Hall

When we saw this video of Alan Wilder playing piano as Martin Gore sang "Somebody" on Facebook this morning, we thought it was some Depeche Mode fan inside-joke. After all, Wilder left the band about fifteen years ago and any speculation that he may someday return to the fold, even for one night, seemed to be little more than wishful thinking. But, it's true, at last night's Depeche Mode show at London's Royal Albert Hall, Wilder appeared to play the make-out classic.

For those of us who are Wilder fans ("Fools," ftw), this is pretty amazing. But, we at WCS must admit feeling a twinge of jealousy. Why couldn't this happen in L.A.?
