Moby–songwriter-musician-DJ-veteran animal activist

by | Jun 11, 2008

Moby–the songwriter-musician-DJ-veteran animal activist who enjoys the status of a recording artist who’s enormously successful both commercially (his “Play” album sold 9 million copies) and critically, including his well-reviewed new album, “Last Night”– and former Air America radio host who’s also a longtime animal lover and advocate (with a particular emphasis on rescue dogs)–discusses his self-described evolution from “militant vegan” to animal advocate who holds nearly identical beliefs, but now expresses them in a less aggressive, less judgmental fashion; his edgy, tongue-in-cheek music video for his new song “Disco Lies”; his increasing work on behalf of the Humane Society of The U.S., and why; and MobyGratis, a program by which he makes portions of his music available for free to student and non-profit filmmakers; and more.
