Moby Attacked in Boston

Three men punch musician after show

Moby was attacked as he tried to get into his car following a gig at Boston's Paradise Club last night. According to the musician, he signed autographs for fans outside the venue when three men assaulted him with mace and blows to the back of his head.

"I turned around to see what was going on and one of them punched me in the face a couple of times and then they all ran away," Moby posted on his Web site. "The assault could've been a lot worse but I'm very curious as to why three men would coordinate an attack on me? [I'm] hardly the most physically threatening person in the world."

Moby is encouraging his attackers to anonymously sign on to his message board and describe their actions and perspectives. "I'm honestly very curious," he continued. "And if anyone sees me in the next couple of weeks and I have some big bruises or stitches on my face, well at least you know why."
