Former Faith No More lead singer Chuck Mosley’s dead at 57

Before Mike Patton, Chuck Mosley was the voice for Faith No More, he recorded one of the band’s biggest hits, “We Care A Lot” and  stayed with the band from 1984 to 1988 releasing the albums “We Care a Lot” and “Introduce Yourself”. He was replaced by Mike Patton after internal feud among him and the members of Faith No More. During the early 1990’s Mosley fronted the Bad Brains and Cement. After some years away from the music industry in the late 1990’s he started to do music again and in recent years he was an occasional guest at Faith No More shows. Chuck Mosley passed away on November 9th at age 57, the family released an statement that reads:

“After a long period of sobriety, Charles Henry Mosley III lost his life, on November 9th, 2017, due to the disease of addiction. We’re sharing the manner in which he passed, in the hopes that it might serve as a warning or wake up call or beacon to anyone else struggling to fight for sobriety. He is survived by long-term partner Pip Logan, two daughters, Erica and Sophie and his grandson Wolfgang Logan Mosley. The family will be accepting donations for funeral expenses. Details to follow when arranged.”

Faith No More also released a statement acknowledging the importance of Mosley to the band:

“It’s with a heavy, heavy heart we acknowledge the passing of our friend and bandmate, Chuck Mosley. He was a reckless and caterwauling force of energy who delivered with conviction and helped set us on a track of uniqueness and originality that would not have developed the way it had had he not been a part. How fortunate we are to have been able to perform with him last year in a reunion style when we re-released our very first record. His enthusiasm, his sense of humor, his style and his bravado will be missed by so many. We were a family, an odd and dysfunctional family, and we’ll be forever grateful for the time we shared with Chuck.”
