As a member of the 1980s new wave band Culture Club, Jonathan Aubrey Moss (born September 11th, 1957) is a well-known English drummer. The Damned, the Nips, and Adam and the Ants are just a few of the other bands he has played with in the past.
Moss was adopted at the age of six months by an upper-middle-class Jewish couple, Rosetta (née Goldsmith, born 1929) and Lionel Moss (born 1927, died 1999). He was born in the Clapham Jewish Boys Home in Wandsworth, south London. At Cambridge Circus, his father ran Alkit, a clothes store. Growing up, he lived in Hampstead and went to Arnold House School and Highgate School.
As a child, Moss began to value music and would play popular tunes on the piano at his family’s home. As a 13-year-old, Jon swiped his older brother’s Wayward drum kit from the school band he was a member of.
Moss had an interest in sports, particularly boxing while attending Highgate School, but he was not interested in pursuing a professional sporting career. Pig Williams, his first band, was also established with his pal Nick Feldman while both were students at Highgate (who would later become a member and co-founder of Wang Chung). As a duo, they performed at various school functions. Jon worked in his father’s clothes company, as a cake salesman, and as a sound engineer at Marquee Studios after graduating from high school.

Career as a musician:
Having failed an audition with the Clash to become a drummer, Moss teamed up with pal Riff Regan to form the punk band London in 1976 “The combination of personalities didn’t work out. Their outlooks were completely at odds with mine.” A single named “Everyone’s a Winner” was published by London, who was represented by Simon Napier-Bell. For MCA Records in 1977, they recorded two singles, a four-track EP, and a full-length album. After this, Moss went on tour with the Stranglers, and the band was signed to a record label as a result.
Moss joined the Damned soon after, taking the place of Rat Scabies. After spending a week in the hospital after being injured in a vehicle accident on New Year’s Eve 1977, he decided to join them. He formed the Edge with Damned guitarist ‘Lu’ Edmonds after leaving the band. The Edge disbanded after less than a year.
Adam and the Ants’ third single, “Car trouble,” and its b-side, “Kick!” featured Moss on guitar. At the time, Moss was a member of Jane Aire & the Belvederes, and as a result, he has given the pseudonym “Terry 1 & 2” on the first song.
Barbara Savage, Moss’s ex-wife, is the mother of his three children.
When Culture Club was at its peak, no one knew that Moss and Boy George had a close romantic relationship.
In 1986, their relationship came to an end. On BBC2’s Worried About the Boy, the relationship was depicted
