Former FAITH NO MORE singer Chuck Mosley has passed away at the age of 57.
His family issued the following statement: “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.”
FAITH NO MORE added in a statement: “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.”
The Mosley fronted FAITH NO MORE became one of the ’80s’ leading underground bands on the strength of 1985’s “We Care a Lot” and 1987’s “Introduce Yourself”.
