KORN Guitarist Pays Tribute To Ex-FAITH NO MORE Singer: 'We Are Losing Too Many People To The Disease Of Addiction'

KORN guitarist Brian “Head” Welch has paid tribute to Chuck Mosley, saying that the ex-FAITH NO MORE singer and his former bandmates “were a huge part” of KORN‘s “everyday lives” in the early 1990s.

Mosley died last week at the age of 57. He sang on FAITH NO MORE‘s first two albums, 1985’s “We Care A Lot” and 1987’s “Introduce Yourself”. He was fired from the band and replaced by Mike Patton, who remains the group’s singer to this day.

In an Instagram post earlier today (Monday, November 13), Welch wrote: “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 L.A.P.D. I was just hanging out drinking beer trying to figure out life. They were so into the RED HOT CHILI 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 [KORN bassist] 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 every day.

“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.”

After he was fired from FAITH NO MORE, Mosley sued his former bandmates over ownership rights and they eventually settled out of court. Years later, he reconciled with FAITH NO MORE, reuniting with them onstage in 2010 and making further live appearances with the group in 2015 and 2016.

Following his initial departure from FAITH NO MORE, Mosley briefly fronted BAD BRAINS and launched a series of solo projects, including the funk metal band CEMENT.
