Chuck Mosley, the vocalist for the mid-Eighties run of pioneering alt-metal outliers Faith No More, died Thursday at the age of 57. The singer pioneered what would eventually become rap-rock on the band's first hit, 1987's snarky MTV breakthrough "We Care a Lot." He left the band shortly after and did a stint as the singer of Bad Brains in the early Nineties. After embarking on a solo career, he made a handful of onstage guest appearances in the years since Faith No More's 2009 reunion.




"After a long period of sobriety, Charles Henry Mosley III lost his life, on November 9th, 2017, due to the disease of addiction," Mosley's family wrote in a statement. "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."

Rest in Peace Bettie Boo. See u soon.

Wow at the news and wow at the statement. Asking for money in the same breath as announcing someone's death.

Well... some people mistakenly believe that being essential, influential, respected etc.... from an era would immediately equate with some financial security.

I truly doubt that the residuals from those tours did much more than to cover living expenses. Please keep in mind for however much you love and respect the guy, he had abuse problems AND no succesful music since the late 80's...and I'm certain that wasn't even much.

Prob came from a crap house, and wound up back with it. Being 57, maybe his family is on a fixed income..maybe some don't care...who knows? It's a practical thing to request financial assistance if they haven't got the funds.
