Chuck Mosley, the inimitable former frontman of Faith No More, has passed away at the age of 57. Mosley passed away from complications related to “the disease of addiction” according to his family.

Mosley’s family released this 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.”

If you or someone you know is struggling with addiction, you can call the hotline for the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration at 1-800-662-4357 (HELP).

Faith No More released their own 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.”

When Faith No More came back to the stage on their redemptive 2010 tour, they brought Chuck with them to The Warfield.

Farewell, Chuck. There was no one like you. There is no one like you. You were the only one of you. Thank you, goodbye.
