Halo is co-authored by Kevin May and David McElroy.
Kevin is a UK-based journalist who normally spends his time writing about the travel industry for a global news service called PhocusWire, where he is editor in chief.
A 25-year career has seen him edit business publications MediaWeek, Travolution and Tnooz, write about escapees from prison, robbers and other shady characters for the Police Gazette at New Scotland Yard in London, and cover the shenanigans of local politics for the Essex Enquirer in Depeche Mode’s home town of Basildon.
He was born and raised near Rochester in Kent, holds a degree in criminology, a postgraduate diploma in magazine journalism, has won a couple of press awards, yet misses the backpacking days of his 20s (but is lucky enough to travel regularly for “The Day Job”).
Kevin first saw Depeche Mode at London’s Wembley Arena with two mates in November 1990… on the World Violation Tour.
David is a Glasgow-based blogger who has hosted the Almost Predictable Almost website since 2011. The blog focusses on Depeche Mode and is especially known for The Global Spirit Tour Project which saw David publish a fan-written review of all 130 concerts on Depeche Mode’s 2017/18 Global Spirit Tour, three of which were written by his co-author, Kevin.
David was raised in Castle Douglas in South West Scotland, where the local Woolworths was his source of all things Depeche-related from Enjoy The Silence onwards. He now lives in Glasgow and, in between coming up with new ways to talk about Basildon’s finest, spends his time supporting and shouting at Liverpool F.C.
