Moby Biography (Wikipedia)
Richard Melville Hall (born September 11, 1965), better known by his stage name Moby, is an American musician, author and activist known for his electronic music, veganism, political activism and support of animal rights. He has sold over 20 million records worldwide, and AllMusic considers him to be "one of the most important dance music figures of the early 1990s, helping bring the music to a mainstream audience both in the UK and in America".
After learning how to play guitar at the age of 9, Moby played in underground punk rock bands in the early 1980’s, and gained attention in the early 1990s with his early electronic dance music. With his fifth studio album, Play (1999), he gained international success; the album sold 6,000 copies in its first week, and it re-entered the global charts in early 2000 and became an unexpected hit, producing eight singles and selling over 10 million copies worldwide. Moby followed the album in 2002 with 18, which was also successful, selling over 5 million copies worldwide and receiving mostly positive reviews.
