Chuck Mosley, singer from iconic Bay Area band Faith No More, dies at 57


Chuck Mosley, the previous guide singer of the influential Bay Area rock band Religion No More, died Nov. nine on the age of fifty seven.

News of his dying arrived through a statement from his family, which was afterwards posted within the EMP Label Team Facebook web site.

Right here would be the statement in its entirety:

“After a long period of sobriety, Charles Henry Mosley III misplaced his lifestyle, on November ninth, 2017, resulting from the condition of addiction. We’re sharing the way in which he passed, from the hopes that it would serve to be a warning or awaken contact or beacon to any person 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 probably be accepting donations for funeral expenditures. Details to follow when organized.”

Mosley will be remembered for fronting Faith No More from 1984 to 1988, during which period the band launched its first two albums – 1985’s “We Care a Lot” and 1987’s “Introduce Yourself.” The music “We Care a lot,” which was involved on each of all those albums, went on to become an alt-rock staple and was regarded as an early entry into the rap-rock style.

The Mosley-led Faith never ever quite managed to hit it significant, even thought it did manage to create some focus using the “We Care a Lot” video. Fame and fortune came later on for Religion No More, once Mosley was replaced by Mike Patton as well as the band unveiled the platinum-selling attempts “The Actual Thing” (1989) and “Angel Dust” (1992).

Still, it’s tough to envision Faith No More ever reaching those heights without the sooner efforts of Mosely.

How privileged we are to have been equipped to accomplish with him final 12 months in a very reunion style when we re-released our extremely first record.

We were being a family, an odd and dysfunctional family, and we’ll be permanently grateful to the time we shared with Chuck.”
