Yesterday, former Faith No More frontman Chuck Mosley took to the internet to claim that he needs money or he’ll be thrown out of his home. It’s a pretty sad post, and it sounds like he’s at the end of his rope. In the post, he claims that he’s behind on rent and his landlord, who’s selling the building, has given him a week to come up with money or be thrown out. The singer, who performed on the band’s firs two albums, We Care a Lot and Introduce Yourself, made the following plea on his Facebook page:
hey friends and other peoples, i am really dreading this, i have fought myself over this for more than a couple months, i seem to have no other choice than to lose my pride due to the lacking ability to provide a sense of security for my family. the shocking truth is that i’m not rich. we struggle everyday, just like most everybody, more, right now, worse than ever, in a long time. our landlord wants to sell the house we’ve lived in for ten years, and yes, we are behind in our rent, so he’s using that as leverage, to get us out so he can fix up and sell, right away, technically, we’re supposed to be out today, dec 3rd, but he’s deciding whether to give us another week. so here i am, for my family, on my knees, asking for help. I’m ashamed for being in this condition, that i have to burden others, who look to me, only to be my friend, and for me to be theirs, and i am abusing that relationship, and i apologise, but for my family, i’ll do anything………………legal. and that’s the reality, i could go into a dissertation, about how and why, but the bottom line is we are broker than we’ve been in a good good long time, and can’t bail out, so here i am asking that anybody who could afford to send a few dollars to my/our paypal acct., ([email protected]) and for any substantial donations, we will offer up my better half’s portrait of my dog, Fredo, and me, real scarface meets…………………….me. she’s an awesome artist,her name is pip logan, and there’s a few more pieces of her work, she’s willing to part with, for a few of the more generous donations . just throwin that out there….our band, VUA, has had to put off trying to tour or play any shows, we’re starting to record new stuff, but even that is suffering at the hands of my family’s financial situation, so, please, if you can, help, we will be eternally greatful and i will be eternally self loathing for having to be at this level……i’m sorry for asking, if i could do anything for you, please ask, and i swear i will do everything in my power to serve you, any way i can. thank you.
The post is definitely a bummer, and it seem really heartfelt. Given that his former band Faith No More just performed at a record store last week, you’d think they might want to consider doing a benefit show for their former singer. They’d raise his rent money in no time, and it’s his voice that put the band on the map in the first place. Somewhat ironically, his last recorded output, and first solo album, was 2009’s Will Rap Over Hard Rock for Food.
