RIP Chuck Mosley

2017-11-11 by DatsNotDaMetulz | 29 Comments
Former Faith No More singer Chuck Mosley has passed away, according to reports. In a statement released by his family Mosley, who also had a brief sting with Bad Brains as well as a solo career, died "due to the disease of addiction". He had previously been sober for a number of years, but had recently relapsed.

Mosley joined Faith No More in the mid-1980s and released two albums, We Care A Lot and Introduce Yourself, with the latter propelling the group to the top of the California underground scene thanks to the single "We Care A Lot". Mosley left the group in 1988 after conflicts within the band, and performed with Bad Brains and Cement during the 1990s before releasing his first solo album, Will Rap Over Hard Rock for Food, in 2009.

In recent years he had reconciled with the members of Faith No More, often appearing at shows since their reunion and performing classics from the first two albums, and in 2016 he performed a short run of full shows with the band. He had also released two albums with Indoria.

In 2017 he joined Primitive Race, who had opted for a more stable lineup for their next album. His only contribution to the project, the album Soul Pretender, was released on November 3.

In spite of how... imperfect his vocals were on the first two FNM records, I think he boasted his own certain breed of charm that at least fit those albums. We Care a Lot and Introduce Yourself haven't aged well, admittedly, but I can still revisit a handful of songs from both releases. Will Rap Over Hard Rock for Food was also pretty dece.

R.I.P Chuck Mosley.

I knew there would be a time of my life when all the musicians that I listen to starts to die and fade out, it's the cruelty of being human. The day Phil Anselmo passes away, I will cry a little...

But If I didn't cry with Cornell's death I highly doubt to do it with another musician...maybe Mike Patton...

Idk man I thought I was okay when Chris died, then they fucking played Black Hole Sun on the radio and I cried like a bitch. Extra shitty cause I had tickets to see them the next weekend. Fuck I loved that band

But the really hard one for me is gonna be Jerry Cantrell.

I didn’t say I did. All I know is that a parent mourning their 9 year old childs death as a result of leukaemia has seen the ravages of a disease.

Now I’m sorry if it upsets you but somethings upset me and calling addiction a ‘disease’ really fucks me right off tbh.

RIP. Chuck Mosley sang on some classic FNM songs like "We Care A Lot" and "As the Worm Turns" and he was a unique vocalist. Also seemed like a really cool dude!

Don’t think I haven’t got compassion and don’t feel sympathy for the family of those who’ve lost loved ones through addiction or those who are battling it but the reality is addiction itself is a condition not a disease.

Like I say tell the 9yr old undergoing chemotherapy that her uncle also has a disease because he is a piss-head and can’t help it. Just like he couldn’t help assaulting her that time because enraged temper brought on by drink is all part of the ‘disease’
When she is sick because of the treatment she can’t help it just like uncle who is sick because of what he consumes. It’s just the physical reaction to the ‘disease’

I just saw him open for Dog Fashion Disco a week ago in Cleveland. He was super drunk and it was both hilarious and sad watching him try to remain standing. Now in hindsight it’s just sad.

Yes he was a bad singer, but I like the emotion he put in new beginnings for example.
