Faith No More formed in 1982 out of the ashes of Faith No Man, a band formed and headed by Mike "The Man" Morris. Roddy Bottum, Mike Bordin, and Bill Gould left Faith No Man. They chose the name Faith No More at the suggestion of a friend (as "The Man" was ''no more''). After cycling through a few guitarists, the members recruited Jim Martin. A number of singers were tried, including a six month stint by Courtney Love as confirmed by Mike Bordin in a http://www.vigilante.co.uk/ep/features/faith.htm 1997 interview.
