Korn’s Brian “Head” Welch On Chuck Mosley: “We Are Losing Too Many People To The Disease Of Addiction”

Korn’s Brian “Head” Welch has shared a tribute for the late Chuck Mosley (ex-Faith No More). You can read what he had to say in the below Instagram post:

I remember living in a tiny apartment in Burbank California living with most of the guys who would later form Korn. They were in their funk rock band called LAPD. I was just hanging out drinking beer trying to figure out life. They were so into the Red Hot Chilli Peppers and Faith No More, and I wanted nothing to do with those bands. Little did I know that Faith No More would grow on me so much that it changed my whole outlook of what metal could sound like. I remember Fieldy waking the whole house up every single day singing the background vocals for the song "We Care A lot" by Faith No More. Every morning he would scream "whoa whoa uh oh!" Drove us all crazy but looking back now it's a funny memory. Faith No More with Chuck Mosley were a huge part of our everyday lives back then. Guys, we need to learn from all this. We are losing too many people to the disease of addiction. It's a plague that's sending the angel of death to wipe so many of our people out and it's got to stop! Please, get help with whatever you're struggling with. Initiate conversations with the Lord everyday. Religious people make prayer out to be some holier than thou thing, but all it is, is talking to God like a friend. Face-to face. Heart-to heart. RIP Chuck Mosley, I'm so grateful that you and your family came to see us a couple months ago at our show 🙏🏼

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.”

The Veer Union Cover Faith No More’s “Epic”

The Veer Union have released a cover of Faith No More’s “Epic” feat. Amalien. The track will come with The Veer Union‘s new six album box set “Decade: History Of Our Evolution.“ Crispin Earl told Loudwire the following:

“Growing up Faith No More was one of our favorite bands,” says Earl. “Not only did they have great songs, but they had an uncompromising passion for what they did musically. We wanted to harness some of that inspiration with this cover and hopefully do some justice to one of the most underrated and influential bands of our time.”
