Gahan was born as David Callcott into a working-class family, to parents Len Callcott (a bus driver of Malaysian British ancestry) and his wife Sylvia (a conductress or “clippy” on London buses).
Dave was only six months old when his father left the family.
His mother Sylvia and father Len divorced two years later and his mother moved Dave and sister Sue, who was born in 1960, to Basildon, Essex, after Sylvia met and married her second husband Jack Gahan (an administrator with Shell Oil).
The Gahan family continued to grow with the birth of two more half-brothers, Peter (born in the year 1966) and Phil (born in the year 1968).
Dave and Sue were raised under the impression that their mother’s second husband, Jack, was their natural father.
When Gahan was 9 years old, his stepfather died. His father showed up again when he was 10. “I’ll never forget that day. When I came home from school, there was this stranger in my mum’s house. My mother introduced him to me as my real dad. I remember I said, that was impossible because my father was dead. How was I supposed to know who that man was? From that day on, Len often visited the house, until one year later he disappeared again, forever this time.”
