Schizophrenia Series-Disabled Legend Bob Mosley

Bob Mosley was born James Robert Mosley, on 4 December, 1942, in Paradise Valley, California, USA. Bob Mosley is principally known as the bass player and one of the songwriters and vocalists for the band Moby Grape. Bob Mosley has also developed a career as a solo artist. 3 of his best known songs with Moby Grape are “Mr. Blues”, from the 1st Moby Grape album (1967), “Bitter Wind”, from Wow/Grape Jam (1968) and “Gypsy Wedding”, from 20 Granite Creek (1971). Bob Mosley has had a varied career, including a period in 1977 playing with Neil Young in a band called The Ducks, which had a brief life and lamented demise.

Bob Mosley’s career has been plagued by the challenges of schizophrenia, as was the case with Moby Grape bandmate Skip Spence. Both musicians were homeless for several years. Bob Mosley’s schizophrenia was 1st diagnosed after he left Moby Grape in
1969,following the release of Moby Grape ’69. Bob Mosley shocked the remaining band members, in leaving the band to join the Marines. It was during basic training with the Marines that Bob Mosley was 1st diagnosed as a paranoid schizophrenic. Bob Mosley was discharged from the Marines 9 months after basic training.

In 1996, 3 of Bob Mosley’s fellow band members, Jerry Miller, Peter Lewis and Don Stevenson, in part reformed Moby Grape with the objective of helping Bob Mosley recover emotionally and financially. Bob Mosley describes the circumstances as follows: “In 1996, Peter Lewis picked me up along the side of a San Diego freeway where I was living, to tell me a ruling by San Francisco Judge Garcia gave Moby Grape their name back. I was ready to go to work again.”

Unlike bandmate Skip Spence, whose musicial output largely ceased within a few years of the onset of schizophrenia, Bob Mosley has been able to continue to write songs and record music for much of his life. Bob Mosley’s most recent solo release is True Blue, released on the Taxim label in 2005.

Obsessive Compulsive Disorder Series-Disabled Legend Fred Durst

Fred Durst was born on 20 August, 1970. Fred is an American singer, actor and film director, known primarily as the founder of nu metal band Limp Bizkit. Fred Durst is well known for his great use of energy on stage and getting large crowds of people pumped. Fred’s image made Limp Bizkit what they are today and is considered to be an icon to many lead vocalists. In some cases, however, Fred’s live stage presence has created controversy on multiple occasions. In 1999, the media portrayed his performance of “Break Stuff” during Woodstock 1999 as contributing to many of the festival’s problems with violence and vandalism. OCD is very present in Fred Durst’s life although he does not like talking about it to the media, he did admit that it is hard to deal with.

Obsessive Compulsive Disorder Series-Disabled Legend Joey Ramone

Joey Ramone was born on 19 May, 1951 and died on 15 April, 2001. Joey was a vocalist and songwriter best known for his work in the punk rock group the Ramones. During his youth, he was by general accounts something of an outcast and had a dysfunctional family life, which inspired the song “We’re A Happy Family”. Joey was said to be the “heart and soul” of the Ramones, and his favorite songs from their repertoire were often the ballads and love songs. C.J. Ramone called him the “hippie of the group”. Joey has admitted that he has OCD, which he certainly had never done before (he actually got in a big fight with Marky on the Howard Stern Show once because Marky had been telling people about his OCD – they made up at the end).
