FAITH NO MORE | May 1997 | Zillo


Translated from German

In 1985 bass-player Billy Gould, keyboardist Roddy Bottum, drummer Michael "Puffy" Bordin, guitarist Jim Martin and vocalist Chuck Mosley released the first FNM album called "We Care A Lot". After the second album called "Introduce Yourself" , Chuck Mosley left the band and went on to work with his band Cement, while Mike Patton, the new singer helped them to get a breakthrough with their album "The Real Thing" and the single "Epic". After their fourth album "Angel Dust" in 1993 the change of guitar players began. Jim Martin was fired and for the recording of "KFAD" Trey Spruance from Mr. Bungle joined the band. Trey was replaced by Dean Menta for the tour who had worked for FNM as a keyboard technician before.

FAITH NO MORE | 24.05.1997 | Kerrang!


You've no chance of being a top rock band if you: regularly indulge in fist-fights, frequently throw hot coffee over your singer, and conduct interviews whilst crapping. Unless you're Faith No More. Paul Brannigan invites the 'Spice Girls with testicles' to tell us just how they do that.....

MIKE PATTON | 24.05.2003 | Kerrang!

RODDY BOTTUM | 22.05.93 | Kerrang!



Roddy Bottum is a heavy metal star. He is also gay. In a field of music where homosexuality is at best ignored, and at worst insulted, FAITH NO MORE's keyboard man is the first gay Metal star to speak candidly about his sexuality. A Gay Rock shocker, or the first of many to open the closet? US writer LANCE LOUD (seriously!) is in the pink...

FAITH NO MORE | May 1995 | Q Magazine



REGRETS, THEY HAVE A FEW ...

Singer Mike Patton has occasionally made a meal of it. He's crapped all over the place. He's chewed on a Tampax. He's tasted a turd. And he's not afraid to make a tit of himself. Now, the newly mature Faith No More are about to tour the world, and elsewhere. "We're talking cockroach," they tell Phil Sutcliffe.

JIM MARTIN | 09.05.1992 | Kerrang!


He's justly proud of his reputation as one of the most repulsive characters in Metal today. His drinking is legendary, his debauchery knows no bounds. His name is frequently prefaced by 'Big Sick Ugly'. No, dummies - we ain't talking about STEFFAN CHIRAZI! We're talking about the man who spills the beans here about his daily routine...
