Continuing the countdown to the release of my book, here's the Moby chapter. I would love to hear your thoughts!!
In 1999, Moby released his ground-breaking album Play. The album turned electronic music on its side with its historically haunting audio sampling. For one brief moment, Moby's sound was the only game in town. In the '00s Moby might be best remembered for being the target of Eminem's wrath at the 2002 MTV video awards. After Moby called Eminem a homophobe, racist and misogynist, Eminem's ire had so much strength that it not only publicly embarrassed Moby, but it also derailed his musical popularity. Play made Moby one of the most respected songwriting innovators. Eminem's angst made him last night's leftovers.
