Former Faith No More singer Chuck Mosley has died

Posted by on November 10, 2017

Former Faith No More singer Chuck Mosley, who sang on the band’s first two albums, has died. He was only 57, and while the actual cause of death wasn’t revealed, his family said it was “due to the disease of addiction.” Here’s the statement from his family:

“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.”

Mosley’s work on Faith No More’s We Care A Lot and Introduce Yourself really helped put Faith No More on the map. His drinking problem was what allegedly led Faith No More to fire him. His last studio album, Will Rap Over Hard Rock For Food, was released in 2009. Last year, he was joined by Faith No More members onstage for two shows when the Deluxe Band Edition of We Care A Lot was reissued. Here’s what EMP Label Group, the label formed by Megadeth’s David Ellefson and label manager Thom Hazaert, who worked with Mosley, said about the loss:
