PRIMITIVE RACE

BAND ISSUE STATEMENT ABOUT CHUCK MOSLEY.

SINGER’S DEATH CAME A WEEK AFTER RELEASE

OF NEW ALBUM

We are deeply heartbroken by the loss of our friend and bandmate, Chuck Mosley. Chuck had a 

vibrant free spirit. He was also a sensitive, kind and loving soul. He wanted to be everything to

everyone; a good partner to Pip, a good father to his children and grandson, a loyal friend, an

accomplished chef, an entertaining performer and so much more. Chuck was funny, witty,

charismatic and charming in a way that was only Chuck. His art and legacy will be with us all

forever; he was truly one of a kind.

On November 3rd, Chuck, Mark, Erie and I were celebrating the release of an album Chuck held 

very dear. Less than a week later, he was no longer with us. Over the past few days, we have spent 

a great deal of time contemplating the best way to honour our friend. At Pip and Doug Esper’s 

urging, Mark, Erie and I will continue to support the album that Chuck was so proud of. The three

of us will donate any proceeds earned from album sales throughout our release cycle in 2018 to

MusiCares, a not-for-profit charity, in Chuck’s name. MusiCares’ services and resources cover a

wide range of financial, medical and personal emergencies and each case is treated with integrity

and confidentiality.

Mark, Erie and I wish to express our deepest condolences to his soulmate Pip Logan, their children 

Erica and Sophie, Grandson Wolfgang and dearest friend, Doug Esper. Unfortunately, Chuck’s 

premature demise left his family without the means to send him off properly and move into their 

next phase of life. Your gesture of a donation to help with his final expenses would be greatly

appreciated: gofundme.com/chuckmosley

Addiction is a horrible burden to bear for the afflicted and their loved ones. If you are, or know 

someone who needs help, don’t be afraid to ask. Help is only a call away. For more information on 

available resources, please visit the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration:

Rest In Peace, Chuck.

Love always,

Chris Kniker, Mark Gemini Thwaite and Erie Loch
