“After a long period of sobriety, Charles Henry Mosley III lost his life, on 9 November 2017, due to the disease of addiction,” the family of Charles Henry Mosley III said in a statement released over the weekend after passing of the former frontman of the seminal metal group Faith No More. Known for fronting the group between 1984 and 1988, Mosley recorded the band’s first two alums ‘We Care A Lot’ and ‘Introduce Yourself’. Partially responsible for creating a sound described as “brilliantly sarcastic funk-rock response to Live Aid and We Are the World”, Mosley’s subsequent contributions towards pioneering a particular sound and his work with hardcore band Bad Brains and Cement left a lasting contribution on the punk-rock community.
