Moby Considered Being A Scientist When He Was A Child

28 December 2008 10:17 PM, PST | icelebz.com | See recent iCelebz news »

Moby wanted to be a scientist when he was a child. The "Play" hitmaker considered several career paths when he was growing up, before settling on the music business after being inspired by punk band the Sex Pistols.

He said: "Up until I was 13 I wanted to be a scientist. Any type of scientist would have been good. After 13, I really wanted to be a guitar player. I saw a Sid Vicious video and it scared me so much I decided to form a punk rock band."

Moby - real name Richard Melville Hall - began studying classical guitar when he was a teenager. The accomplished musician and DJ then went on to learn to play piano and drums.

Meanwhile, the 43-year-old star says he wishes he had written the 70s disco classic "I Feel Love."

First set report on Suck; 1st photo *Updated*

18 December 2008 12:29 PM, PST | Fangoria | See recent Fangoria news »

We just got in the first pic!

“Chicks dig me,” sneers Beef (Moby), the shaven-headed self-proclaimed “biggest rock star in Buffalo” as he pushes aside Hugo (Chris Ratz), the spindly roadie for down-and-out rock band The Winners. Marching to his doom down a filthy corridor leading to the dimly lit motel room where the cold white embrace of Jennifer (Jessica Paré), The Winners’ incandescently beautiful bass player, awaits him, Beef will find that while chicks may dig him, this one will love him to death.

And even beyond death. As the phrase goes, rock and roll is indeed a vicious game.

This week, filming will wrap on the Toronto set of Capri Films’ Suck, with Fango having enjoyed unprecedented access, totaling 17 days of the 20-day shoot. Writer/director Rob (Phil The Alien) Stefaniuk, who also stars as the band’s frontman Joey, hopes to bypass the curse of “vampire rock »

Moby Warns Drug-taking Stars About Their Future

24 March 2008 9:09 AM, PDT | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Dance star Moby has warned troubled stars Amy Winehouse and Pete Doherty they will "burn out" before they hit 30 if they continue their drug-addled lifestyles.

The Play singer/songwriter is concerned about how today's talented singers are abusing their bodies and minds - insisting stars don't realise just how damaging drugs can be to their careers.

But 42-year-old Moby - real name Richard Melville Hall - understands their addictive tenancies, confessing he would take mind-bending medications every day if they didn't ruin his health.

He says, "If there were no negative side-effects I would be high every single minute of every day. But drugs take a huge toll. A few people, like Keith Richards, manage to do it in a sustainable way.

"But when I look at Pete Doherty and Amy Winehouse, I wonder what they're going to be capable of when they're 30, in terms of cognitive and emotional abilities. Drugs burn you out.

"You feel bulletproof if you're selling records and making money and everyone wants to sleep with you, but then things start to go wrong." »
