Catapulted to superstardom after releasing his album Play, Moby suddenly found himself hanging out with the likes of David Bowie, Lou Reed, Christina Ricci, and Madonna. He was drinking liters of vodka (every day), eating ecstasy for breakfast (most days), and sleeping with supermodels (infrequently).
But there were demons that lived beneath the bling and bluster of fame.
Then It Fell Apart dissects the darker side of fame with equal levels of grit and humor: Stephen Colbert said of Then It Fell Apart, “Somehow this chronicle of a long, dark night of the soul also involves funny stories involving Trump, Putin, and a truly baffling array of degenerates.”
Moby was born in Harlem in 1965. He is a singer-songwriter, musician, DJ and photographer. The first volume of his memoirs, Porcelain, was published in 2016.
