However, some has mentioned the terrible consequences that can be brought about by drug addiction.
The San Francisco-based group 'Faith No More' broke up in 1998. Mosley was the band's lead singer from 1984 until 1988, when he was effectively fired from the group. His voice was recorded on their first two albums 'We Care a Lot' and 'Introduce Yourself'.
After his years in Faith No More, Mosley was working as a singer for the hardcore band Bad Brains, and playing in another funk metal outfit, Cement.
Born in Los Angeles, the singer is survived by his long-term partner Pip Logan and two daughters Erica and Sophie.
