    Default GWAR frontman Dave Brockie found dead in Virginia home

    Sad...

    RICHMOND, Va. (AP) -- Dave Brockie, who as "Oderus Urungus" fronted the alien-costumed heavy metal band GWAR during graphic and fake-blood-soaked stage shows for more than three decades, has died. He was 50.
    Officers were called to Brockie's home Sunday evening and found the singer dead inside the home, Richmond police spokeswoman Dionne Waugh said Monday. Detectives don't suspect foul play at this time and the medical examiner's office will determine cause of death, Waugh said.

    Sad to hear this. I saw Gwar 3 times, back 20 some years ago. 1st time was at Hammerjacks in Baltimore on Halloween '92. Also saw them at Bohagers and The 9:30 Club. They always put on a great show.

    I used to listen to Scumdogs of the Universe back in the day and thought it was a decent enough album, considering the band. The band, their music, and their stage personas were really quite something to behold. They weren't everybody's cup of tea but what they did was a very creative, nonetheless. I think it would have been a mind-fuck to see them live, although I never would have wanted to be within the first few rows!

    I was in front of the stage, when I saw them at The 9:30 Club. It was during their Scumdogs tour. Got covered in bodily fluids. Made for an interesting hour drive back to my college.
