Artistfacts®: You can leave comments about the artist/band at the bottom of the page.
Moby is a vegan. That means he won't eat anything that comes from animals (eggs, cheese, milk, etc).
When he couldn't get his songs on the radio, he started licensing them for commercials to get them exposure. His album Play is the first to have every song used in commercials. The ads gave the album a huge boost in sales.
His real name is Richard Melville Hall.
He is the great-great-great grandnephew of Herman Melville, who wrote Moby Dick. That is how he chose the name Moby.
Moby is a born-again Christian. He doesn't drink alcohol.
Created the Area: One tour featuring different styles of music made up of bands he likes, including Incubus, Outkast, and Nelly Furtado. He kept the ticket prices down by working with sponsors, which he was good at from licensing his songs in commercials.
His prize posession is a drawing of Homer Simpson's head signed by Matt Groening, the creator of The Simpsons. (thanks, Dan - West Hartford, CT)
He was in the punk band Flipper for a VERY breif time in the 80's. (thanks, shawn - Bremerton, WA)
He used to be in a thrash punk band called the Vatican Commandos. (thanks, Adam - Dewsbury, England)
