The original frontman for Faith No More, Chuck Mosely, has passed away at the age of 57. His time with the band encompassed their 1985 album We Care a Lot and 1987 album Introduce Yourself. The cause given by the band’s publicist to Stereogum was “addiction-related reasons.”
The full statement can be found below:
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.
Rest in Peace Chuck.
