I'm not so sure every single line wrote by a lyricist is to be taken literally and at face value.......

Unless of course you're Phil Collins when at least some of the lyrics should be  ;)

Indeed. He's found a new career where he can talk about lifelong mistakes to his heart's content and he doesn't even need to tell anyone's stepfather he said so.

As much as I am really enjoying all the lyrical references, on a serious note I am wondering if this means he is done with music now? No more OSI, soundtracks or solo projects ever?

I’m guessing he hasn’t said anything publicly on the subject, but does anyone know if he’s worked on anything musical since his medical studies began?

In 2013, Ray Alder gave an interview relating to Fates Warning's album Darkness in a Different Light, for which Moore contributed lyrics for one song.  The interviewer asked where Moore was/was he still in Turkey, and Alder responded, "He’s in America now; he’s going to be a doctor. He’s in his third year of medical school."  http://deadrhetoric.com/features/fates-warning-quite-a-bit-left-to-say/2/

Chroma Key has a Patreon page ( https://www.patreon.com/chromakey ) with two posts of music in February 2021, one from February 2020, and a bunch of stuff from 2019, so it seems like he hasn't completely abandoned music.

For whatever reason, I imagine him still driving the same sort of car he drove in the making of I&W videos (some sort of white compact car with a bra on the front).

SOS is one of my favorite songs of Chroma Key. Just love that beat, and vibe.

Some of his recent Patreon demos have this same vibe.

Yeah, that's a favorite from Chroma Key for sure. I lost track of his stuff after Graveyard Mountain Home. If he's back to doing stuff like SOS I may have to check that out.

It's some quite diverse stuff...Some sound like OSI style, and others like how each album sounds. Like Elephant Boy reminds me of Graveyard Mountain Home and OSI blended together.

I personally think it's worth the price for just how much he has put out. Because you get access to all of his past Patreons. It's a cool idea, because I forgot and didn't change my card info so it cancelled me, so I went back to change it and still got access to the stuff I missed that he released, which was quite a lot.

Lol that picture tho...

Not exactly the mug of a guy you want to talk out your daddy issues with...amirite?

Since he mentions something in his bio I’m actually going to guess he’s probably not all that sensitive about his time in DT and would probably be chill about a patient/client mentioning it as long as your weren’t completely “fanboy-ing” out.

He'd likely say "I see you have an intense infatuation with me?"   :lol

I don't know how big is the pool of people that are simultaneously DT fans, living in North Dakota and close enough to the actual town to be referred to him if needed.

Could be.  Minot has a population of about 48,000, and you have to go more than 100 miles to find a more populous city.  The pool in question (in the shape of a heart no doubt) ain't likely too big.

Perhaps not, but even so it’s hard to imagine he hasn’t had at least one or two patients referred to him that have some awareness of his past. Or at least, who have heard Pull Me Under at some point in their lives...

Who knows, but it's not like DT or any of its current or former members are household names among the general public.  My wife has heard PMU many times, but she wouldn't have the first clue who JP is, much less KM.  I work with a guy who knows DT marginally (meaning he knows PMU from way back and knows SFAM because I lent it to him prior to the concert that I talked him into to going to).  He knows JR and JP from Facebook but wouldn't have a clue who KM was.  Also, while I hate to admit this, PMU was nearly 30 years old.

My guess would be that the most that might have happened is that a patient noticed the reference in the bio to a music career and asked him, "Anyone I might have heard of?"  To which KM might respond with either, "no," or, "we had a song called Pull Me Under back in the 90s you might have heard."

Good on him for pursuing it.  He's reinvented himself.

That pic though... thought you guys were being dramatic, but I feel like he's staring into my soul.  I bet all his patients stare at the ceiling, and try not to think.
