GWAR frontman Dave Brockie has reportedly been found dead in his home this weekend. 50 year old Brockie, aka Oderus Urungus in the band, played bass in Gwar and founded the band back in 1984.
This lot are famed for their outrageous shows playing thrash metal and dressing up in the most insane outfits you will ever witness, definitely one of the best live experiences you would have ever encountered. Most people would leave a Gwar show covered in fake blood and foam spat from the pussy of a nun or the throth from a six foot penis – so it’s safe to say that the train journey back home sat with commuters on the last train covered in blood was always one to cherish as a result.
The strangest thing is that he posted a selfie on the 18th March on his FB page saying “Happy to be alive today. Hope you are too!”. We hope that this is not some strange rumour gone wrong. If not, it was an honour to have seen Dave Brockie play live and our thoughts go out to all of his family and friends. RIP.
