I'm a bit of a roc doc junkie....anything really, obscure, never made it fringe types, punk, cock rock, Wrecking Crew/Muscle Shoals stuff, folk, grunge, of the best, most entertaining ones I have seen was on TP. It's on Netflix....runs almost 4 hours and isn't long enough. I am not a fan, but I think for anyone who is this is probably a must see... directed by Peter Bogdanovich for any film buffs who'd care ... B003A3X24A

One of my favorite times seeing him was seeing him close out ACL in like 2006 or 2007 and the skies opened up and it started pouring and people started leaving but Tom just kept right on playing, so I'm standing there soaked cell phone ruined just in awe of the performance. The worse the weather was the better he was playing. It was surreal.

I took my dad to a Tom Petty tour in the mid to early 2000s. Great show. Then took my dad to Stevie Nicks show few years later and Tom Petty sang some songs with her. Cool stuff. Great time with my dad. :cool:

Vocalist appeared on 1986's 'We Care A Lot' and 1987's 'Introduce Yourself'

Charles Henry "Chuck" Mosley III, best known as former lead vocalist of Faith No More, died yesterday, November 9th. He was 57. While his official cause of death has yet to be revealed, Mosley's family, who announced the news, attribute his passing to "the disease of addiction." "We're sharing the manner in which he passed, in the hopes that it might serve as a warning or wake up call or beacon to anyone else struggling to fight for sobriety," they said in a statement.

Born in 1959, Mosley grew up in Los Angeles. In the late Seventies, he met Billy Gould, Faith No More's eventual bassist; he played in several bands (including Gould's first band, the Animated) before enlisting with Faith No More in 1985. Mosley fronted the band for its first two albums, 1986's We Care A Lot and 1987's Introduce Yourself. Due to personal and creative differences, Mosley split with the band in 1988, following Faith No More's European tour behind the latter release; Mike Patton stepped in to take his place.

Post–Faith No More, Mosley did a two-year stint as the lead vocalist for seminal D.C. punks Bad Brains, and later formed the funk-metal band Cement, who went on to release two albums in the early Nineties. In 2009, he released his first and only solo album, Will Rap Over Hard Rock for Food; the record featured appearances by members of Faith No More, Korn and others.

Mosley is survived by his long-term partner Pip Logan, two daughters, Erica and Sophie, and his grandson, Wolfgang Logan Mosley. The family will be accepting donations for funeral expenses; details are currently TBA. ... ey-dead-57

Never heard of him, but Lil Peep fell at 21 years old. Apparently mixed guitars into rap/emo style music and amassed a large following in the last couple of years after binging on drugs and music creation on LA's skid row after growing up in Long Island. Dad was a proff and mom an elementary school teacher....struggled mightily with depression and suicidal ideation for some time. :scared: ... &smtyp=cur
