Checking in with Moby
Remember that piece on Moby I told you I was working on? Well, it came out in today's paper.
Have a look-see.
Of all the musicians I've interviewed recently, Moby struck me as being one of the most honest and open. He talked about some of the choices he made several years ago that he now regrets.
"There's definitely some decisions that were made that were not necessarily motivated by creativity, but were motivated by pressure from the record company to increase market share and the desire to have a little more fame," he said.
"I say that with a lot of trepidation and shame. In hindsight, those are the decisions I regret the most."
Those decisions and that regret are part of the reason why he decided to pull back and make his latest album "Wait For Me," so intimate. It's a record for living rooms -- not dance floors.
Moby performs at Rams Head Live tonight. Should be a good show.
