Every time I oversleep, someone dies.
Every fucking time. And I always feel like the last to know.
Dave Brockie, better known as Oderus Urungus, is dead at the age of 50.
Gwar’s manager, Jack Flanagan, has released the following statement:
“It is with a saddened heart that I confirm my dear friend Dave Brockie, artist, musician, and lead singer of Gwar, passed away at approximately 6:50 p.m. EST Sunday, March 23, 2014. His body was found Sunday by his bandmate at his home in Richmond, Virginia. Richmond authorities have confirmed his death and next of kin has been notified. A full autopsy will be performed. He was 50 years old, born August 30, 1963.”
I wonder what the cause was. Those teeth lead me to believe it was maybe drug-related.
I’d be speculating, of course, but this flat-out sucks.
Think the band will carry on without him? It’d be bad form if they did, but something tells me Gwar did not die with Dave.
