R.I.P. Chuck Mosley (1959-2017)

Chuck Mosley, the guy who Cared a Lot, has passed away at age 57 due to his struggles with addiction.

Chuck wasn’t the first Faith No More singer (even Courtney Love was there before him) but he was the guy who put them on the map with two excellent, outrageous albums:  We Care a Lot and Introduce Yourself.  Without Chuck, it is entirely possible there might not be a Mike Patton, who was a huge fan already when he took over the frontman role.  After Faith No More, he spent some time with Bad Brains and as a solo artist.

Chuck was different to the end.  Never one to make safe music.  We will miss you, Chuck.

    1. Weird thing today — I was just talking about these guys with our QA manager. Turns out he was a big fan back in the day. Bad Brains, Rollins Band, and Faith No More. I had no idea! Always interesting when the subject of music comes up — you learn things about people that you didn’t expect!

      I’ll have to tell him this news on Monday.
