R.I.P. Chuck Mosley - 1959-2017

Being a fan of Faith No More since 1990, including both the Mike Patton and Chuck Mosley eras, I was gutted to hear of Mosley's passing on November 9, 2017. Coincidentally I was listening to the We Care A Lot album just before I heard the awful news.

RIP Chuck Mosley 1959-2017, the original FNM frontman/showman.

Faith No More official band statement:

"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."

Family statement: 

"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."
