Fans are mourning the sudden death of a former lead rock singer. The ex-frontman of the band “Faith No More,” Chuck Mosley, died on Thursday, November 9th at only 57 years old.

News regarding his death was not revealed until Friday, November 10th. According to The Guardian, Mosley tragically died following his long battle with addiction.

Although specific details were not released to the public, the family confirmed, “After a long period of sobriety, Charles Henry Mosley III lost his life, on 9 November 2017, due to the disease of addiction.”

Ultimately, the family hopes that Mosley’s addiction story will help others who are fighting the same battle.

Before singing for the band “Bad Brains" and starting a solo music career, Mosley was the centerpiece of “Faith No More,” and according to the Rolling Stone, he pioneered the band’s unique sound of what is now known as “Rap-rock.” "Faith No More" is best-known for their hit late 1980's song, "We care a lot."

People described him as “unpredictable,” which eventually led to him breaking off from the rest of the band. However, they were reportedly on good terms before he passed.

Many fans took to social media to share their warm thoughts about Mosley and send their condolences to the family. Some even called him a legend.

Mosley will be missed by his partner, two daughters, and friends.
