Born in New York on September 11, 1965 , Moby revealed in an interview with TMZ that he actually lived a mile and a half away from the former twin tower.
The singer talked about how it was hard for him for a few years to celebrate the event on the same day America was hit by the tragedy.
However, as time has passed, he has managed to come to terms with the situation and enjoy a proper celebration on his birthday.
“It’s been 10 years and a lot of NYers … I think we grieved for a while, but it happened a while ago. So I think we’ve sort of left the grieving behind,” he said.
