Just released, Reintroducing Chuck Mosley: Life On and Off the Road is a book by bandmate, friend, tour and confident Douglas Esper. Available from ScoutMedia now, the book promised a look inside the life of the talented and enigmatic frontman Chuck Mosley who’s thirty-five plus years in music began on Hollywood, saw him shoot to fame with Faith No More on their first few releases, but a turbulent end led to his passing on November 19th 2017, at just age 57.
“For twenty years I was Chuck’s fan, band mate, cheerleader, unknowing drug mule, AA plus one, friend, and I tried to help him write his autobiography,” said Douglas Esper. “After he passed away November 9th 2017, I continued working on a book about the recording of Chuck’s solo record with producer Matt Wallace (Faith No More, Deftones, The Replacements), a behind the scenes look at the reunion shows Chuck performed with Faith No More in 2016, and the ups and downs of dealing with Chuck Mosley, warts and all.”
Chuck Mosley and Douglas Esper performed over 150 shows together, recorded under the Chuck Mosley name as well as the indie-pop moniker, Indoria, and they acted together in the short film, Like An Open Heart It Shines by David Collupy.
“Chuck battled so many demons, but he remained a kind-hearted soul who loved to make other people laugh until the end. Our tour wasn’t always pretty and we spent a lot of time bickering, but I wouldn’t trade it for anything. We tried like hell to reintroduce Chuck Mosley to the world. This is our story from my point of view.”
Chuck Mosley spent time fronting Faith No More, Bad Brains, Cement, VUA, Indoria, and had just released a new album, Soul Pretender, with the band Primitive Race the week he passed away.
Douglas Esper appears in the upcoming found footage horror film, Dwellers, produced by Ellefson Films (David Ellefson of Megadeth). The film was written, directed, and stars Drew Fortier, who toured with Chuck Mosley and Douglas Esper in 2017 and is also directing Thanks … And Sorry, a documentary about the late singer/songwriter.
