RIP: Gwar frontman Dave Brockie

03.25.2014by: Ryan Miller

Dave Brockie, mostly known as Oderus Urungus of GWAR, was found dead on Sunday at his home in Richmond, VA at the age of 50. In regards to Brockie's death, former GWAR bassist Mike Bishop said, "Dave was one of the funniest, smartest, most creative and energetic persons I've known. He was brash sometimes, always crass, irreverent, he was hilarious in every way. But he was also deeply intelligent and interested in life, history, politics and art. His penchant for scatological humors belied a lucid wit. He was a criminally underrated lyricist and hard rock vocalist, one of the best, ever! A great front man, a great painter, writer, he was also a hell of a bass guitarist. I loved him. He was capable of great empathy and had a real sense of justice."

Randy Blythe, lead singer of Lamb of God, said his group learned how to become a real touring band from GWAR. “They gave us our first shot at this thing,” Blythe said in a Facebook post Monday. “Richmond, VA has lost one of its most creative people. This is a crying shame to me. RIP Dave Brockie. Oderus, enjoy your trip back home,” he said.

Brockie formed the satirical thrash metal band in 1984 which went on to put out 13 studio albums. I think it's safe to say that we'll never see a frontman quite like Dave Brockie ever again, he will truly be missed.

Pretty shitty.

GWAR was on my short list of bands to see before they retire. Sadly then I got cancer and other assorted shit happened. They'll always be one of my favorites.
