Faith No More’s amazing frontman Mike Patton turns 51

Since he replaced Chuck Mosley as the singer for Faith No More in 1989, Mike Patton gained a legion of fans and followers around the globe. He is one of the most diverse and versatile musicians, singers, and has earned critical praise for his diverse array of vocal techniques, possessing the highest vocal range of any known singer in popular music, with a range of six octaves. Born Michael Allan Patton on January 27th, 1968 in Eureka, California, Patton begun his musical career in the 1980’s by forming his band Mr Bungle, that achieved some success on the indie, alternative and underground music circuits. After joining Faith No More in 1989, Patton rose to international fame and the band became one of the most influential and important on the Alternative Rock scene of the 1990’s, producing hits such as “Epic”, “Easy”, “Digging The Grave”,”Midlife Crisis”, “Ashes To Ashes” and “Last Cup Of Sorrow”. After the band broke up in 1997 after playing a final show in Lisbon, Portugal where they surprised the fans with the announcement, Patton (who always kept musical side projects while in Faith No More) multiplied himself even further in several projects such as Fantômas, Pepping Tom, while still keeping Mr. Bungle active. In 2009, Faith No More got together again and did several concerts until 2012. They released their latest album “Sol Invictus” in 2015 and are currently on hiatus. Mike Patton turns 50 today, celebrate by watching these two amazing Faith No More concerts, Live At Hellfest, Clisson, France 2015 and Live At Brixton Academy, London, England, 1990.
