Moby Gave Up Drinking Because Someone Stole His Hat

Moby is sober now because someone stole his hat. But wait, there’s more to it than that. David Bowie, Moby’s idol (they also went on tour together in 2002) gave Moby a gift any Bowie fan would kill for: his hat from the film The Man Who Fell To Earth. And then some douche stole it. From The Guardian via Express:

About 10 years ago, I was over at his (Bowie’s) house and he gave me a present, the greatest present anyone has ever given me: the fedora that he wore in The Man Who Fell to Earth. And on the inside of the brim it said: ‘To Moby, Love David.’ I felt like I’d been given the holy grail, because Bowie is my favourite artist of all time. A few weeks later, I’d been in this terrible bar and it closed and I invited three people back to my apartment. Anyway, people were smoking crack in the bathroom, and at six in the morning I took out this hat and I was showing it off, and in the morning it was gone… I remember thinking: ‘Boy, I need to stop drinking’.

As a Bowie fan that makes me so sad. Everyone be on the lookout for this hat:
