Then It Fell Apart: An Interview with MobySaturday, May 4 | 4:30 PM - 5:45 PM
San Francisco Chronicle Stage in the Park
- Outdoor (Free)
What happens when you have everything you’ve ever wanted but still feel completely empty? In the summer of 1999, Moby released PLAY, an album that helped define the millennium and catapulted him to superstardom. Suddenly he was hanging out with David Bowie and Lou Reed, Christina Ricci and Madonna, taking ecstasy for breakfast (most days), and drinking bottles of vodka (every day)… a diet that couldn’t last. In his shocking, riotously entertaining second memoir, “Then It Fell Apart,” Moby takes us through the dark heart of fame to rock bottom and into recovery. Bonus: though this session isn’t a concert, we may persuade Moby to perform a couple of acoustic songs. Interviewed by Peter Hartlaub, the San Francisco Chronicle’s pop culture critic.
