Description

What do you do when you realise you have everything you think you've ever wanted but still feel completely empty? What do you do when it all starts to fall apart? The second volume of Moby's extraordinary life story is a journey into the dark heart of fame and the demons that lurk just beneath the bling and bluster of the celebrity lifestyle. 

In summer 1999, Moby released the album that defined the millennium, PLAY. Like generation-defining albums before it, PLAY was ubiquitous and catapulted Moby to superstardom. Suddenly he was hanging out with David Bowie and Lou Reed, Christina Ricci and Madonna, taking ecstasy for breakfast (most days), drinking litres of vodka (every day) and sleeping with super models (infrequently). It was a diet that couldn't last. And then it fell apart. 

The second volume of Moby's memoir is a classic about the banality of fame. It is shocking, riotously entertaining, extreme and unforgiving. It is unedifying, but you can never tear your ears away.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your Library section along with the audio on our Desktop Site.

Not as good as Porcelain

A bit disappointed after listening to Porcelain, which I thought was much more powerful and had a more interesting story.

The Real Story

Of COURSE no aspiring artist can ever fully believe it, Moby has laid it out: poetically, starkly, with heart, humor and pathos. It’s true in EVERY endeavor: success does NOT make a person happy. I theorize that, of one is unhappy before fame and success, ‘making it’ can be DISASTROUS. Up to that point, one always claims, ‘if I only had (fame, fortune, sex) I’d be happy.’ When one arrives at the top and finds that NONE of this has done the trick, panic sets in.

I don’t know how I know this since I’ve spent fifty years in the aspiring phase, but I can’t thank you enough, Mobes, for telling it like it really is.

Maybe the best review comes from my wife. She wasn’t interested (different age, musical tastes, whatever), but she was in my car and heard a bit of it, she couldn’t get enough: ‘it’s HYPNOTIC!’

A truly sincere thanks from the author of Cry A Little Longer and Let’s Talk About Girls (just in case your tastes run to sixties garage rock). I read BOTH Fell and Porcelain. I enjoyed both tremendously and learned much.

WOW, great work.

I hope this man finds peace and happiness and someday can understand that he is and always was worthwhile. He has made amazing contribution to this world.

love it!

I do not love Moby's music, but I like him. Both books are very good. Well read, well written, and a wonderful look inside a persons life.

Another great book by Moby

More dark and twisted stories from the New York underbelly of a by-gone era with a sentimental bent. When this book came out it was fodder for TMZ obsessed virtue signalers, but it has a lot of merit beyond their cynical chattering. These stories of debauchery and sadness and losing are great introspective on the flashy American high class lifestyle. Moby's pairing of timeline swaps illustrate a yin/yang effect, the equivalence of poverty of wealth and poverty of spirituality. The book is well written, Moby's subtle narration is great from beginning to end. I couldn't ask for more.

Dark, depressing yet captivating

Like watching a train wreck, you just can't keep from staring in disbelief. Although, if your going to live the rock star life, Moby set the bar!

Fantastic

Probably my favorite audiobook I’ve listed to this year. An amazing tale of artistic genius, fame, addiction,poverty, wealth and power. I think anyone who has struggled with addiction could relate, but few have had the ability to go to such excesses. I wish him the best in his future endeavors and truly hope he can find what he needs in this life.

just as good as Porcelain....

The stories here may even be more sad than his first memoir, but once again Moby doesn't hesitate to be brutally honest about his life. Kudos to Moby; and food for thought about the choices we make in life...

Nobody ever knows

Moby was by vulnerable in telling his story. Powerful way to let the not famous people know you can get through it all.

Dark, dark, dark

Every book has it's moment, the specific circumstances under which it should be read. This one is the perfect accompaniment for a journey through self loathing. Narrower in appeal than Porcelain-- it is exactly right for someone who seeking to explore dark energy. Hence, my rating: it's a 4.5 if you're in that season of your life and 1.5 if you're not.
Cheers.

Great book

In the space of 2 weeks I've listened to both of Moby's books. They're both great. In this book he offers fascinating insight into the struggles related to his insecurities and fame.
Now I have Moby withdrawal symptoms. I hope there's a 3rd book available in the future.
