Faith No More’s Chuck Mosley Dead at 57

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.
