Faith No More:

“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.”

Here’s his family’s 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.”

Thom Hazaert (EMP LABEL GROUP) also commented:

“When I met Chuck, he had been away from music for a long time, and it was an honor to be able, with his greatest supporter Doug Esper, to help make him active again, out touring for the fans, and release his last few releases. We had been working on re-releasing some of his classic catalog with Cement, and helping him stay in the studio to continue being productive moving forward on new music.

Being involved with him, the Faith No More reunion shows, everything we have done the last 2 years, has been one of the most incredible, and rewarding experiences of my career. In Chuck I found a true friend, and a beautiful, timeless, musical soul. I was just with him a few weeks ago, we had some great conversations about the future, the new music he was working on with Matt Wallace. He was in amazing spirits and truly excited about music again. Thankfully, that is the last memory I will have of him. He fought a long hard battle with sobriety, which he seemed to be winning, which makes it all the more devastating.

Chuck was truly one of the greats, as the original vocalist of Faith No More, he had a voice that launched not only one of the greatest bands of all time, but helped define an entire generation of music. Thom, David, and all at EMP today mourn the loss of a one of a kind voice that will never be duplicated, Mr. Chuck Mosley. We were so beyond honored to have him as part of our family. Our deepest condolences to his amazing family, friends, and anyone else whose lives were touched by Chuck and his music. Thankfully, we were able to have a small hand in making sure there was more of it for the World to enjoy.

Rest In Peace.”

Mosley said the following:

“While it was a great record for what it was, and a lot of people love it, ‘Will Rap Over Hard Rock‘ turned into a monster that I let get completely out of control with overdubs, over-production, my live tracks getting redone by God knows who.. ‘Demos For Sale‘, is a choice version of the LP, before it mutated into ‘Will Rap Over Hard Rock For Food‘, a little closer to how we wanted it to be – live, dirty and punk rock.. warts and all.”
