There were many reasons Moby was never going to make it as a DJ and musician in the New York club scene. This was the New York of Palladium; of Mars, Limelight, and Twilo; of unchecked, drug-fueled hedonism in pumping clubs where dance music was still largely underground, popular chiefly among working-class African Americans and Latinos.

T. W. Lawrence writes the stories that make us feel good about growing up in Texas and shows his love for the state.

If nothing else, it is to share a story told well to those who will enjoy it.

Locating the wandering evangelist was the only chance Cowboy had a real peace. His journey had begun.
