AfterPartyPod: Moby

MobyWhat is there to say about Moby that hasn’t already been said? (Well, there’s one thing that’s at least never been in print: How f-ing psyched are you that he agreed to do AfterPartyPod?)

The legendary musician, who burst onto the scene with his fifth studio album, Play, is also a DJ, photographer and soon-to-be memoirist (we all know he’s a descendant of Herman Melville, right?) And it’s not just his own music he’s had a hand in; the active animal rights supporter has remixed, co-written and produced music for many of the other greats.

But we can find all that out everywhere so let’s talk about his sobriety. After a bout with sobriety when he was a Christian, Moby developed this reputation as something of a puritan. But he was actually boozing it up, as well as taking plenty of recreational illegal substances, while he brought the party back to his place. It wasn’t until he got to his 40s and the hangovers started to get debilitating that he started to look at the possibility of sobriety. Now he’s years into the sober game and growing all the time. In this episode, he and I talk about deciding to get sober, relapsing, how unappealing the thought of having just a drink or two is and and the fact that people still come up to him on the street to thank him for the epic parties he used to have, among many other topics.

    Loved this. Moby and I both grew up in Darien, CT. I loved this interview-I so related to it all!!! Thank you. I once went to a tag sale at Moby’s mom’s house-I walk by it on my daily walk-his mom moved-but his beer can collection in the basement was for sale-I remember that:) Thanks, Anna and Moby. There is quite a crew of Darien High kids in “the rooms”. Glad we found them! p.s. your music jingle is awesome too!
