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 eyes away from the page.
Brutally honest and occasionally hilarious
Then it fell apart
Just incredible reading , heartbreaking tough to read, however with a sense of humour, mixed emotions after I put the book down I listened to black flag on my stereo and contemplated what I read. A must read, but what the hell do I know, get it.
