Biography

Moss was in a relationship with Culture Club's lead singer Boy George. Although Moss did not acknowledge this during the height of Culture Club's success in the 1980s, he did talk openly of the sexual relationship with George and his love for George during a brief Culture Club reunion in the 1990s. Moss was in a heterosexual marriage and has three children.[2] According to an interview with Boy George on the Perez Hilton website, Moss divorced from his wife Barbara ("Babs") in 2008. [3] However other sources say he is still married to his wife.

In 1985, he produced some tracks for the band, Woyeyeh, featuring Sheila.

Following Culture Club, he released a single with the group Heartbeat UK, entitled "Jump To It". He was also the producer of that record.

In 1989, under the name Rubberman, he released one white label of an acid house instrumental track. Boy George used that backing track to create his own song "After The Love", which was released as a single on the Jesus Loves You name in 1989. He was also involved later in another group, called Promised Land, circa 1991-1992 with Nick Feldman of the pop group Wang Chung. They released some singles ("Something In The Air" and "Circle In The Square") and a self-titled album.

Moss was a part of the Culture Club reformation between 1998 and 2002.

He was also in a rock/punk band called Fassbender from 2003 to 2005. Moss is currently a member of the bands DanMingo and Dirth. He has also performed and recorded with the London based singer-songwriter, Anca.

In July 2005, Moss played drums on the charity single, "People I Don't Know Are Trying to Kill Me", written by journalist, Neil McCormick, to help the families of the victims of the terrorist bombings in London.[4]

In June 2006, Moss was rumoured to be taking part in another reformation of Culture Club with another vocalist, Sam Butcher, after Boy George declined to take part. However, while the new Culture Club did not come to fruition, Moss had withdrawn prior to the project being entirely shelved.

Moss was recently interviewed in the Hampstead Village Voice about his early life and career.[5]
