The arrangements have been finalized for a memorial service remembering guitarist Cory Smoot (Gwar’s Flattus Maximus).
The service will take place this Friday (November 11) at the Bennett Funeral Home Chesterfield Chapel, located at 14301 Ashbrook Parkway in Chesterfield, Virginia. The service begins at 4:00 p.m. and is open to the public.
In lieu of flowers the family is asking that contributions be made to the “Smoot Family Fund.” More information on that can be found here.
Gwar will be forced to cancel two performances on their current tour, so they can attend the services.
Those nixed dates are November 10 in Medford, Oregon, and Friday November 11 in San Francisco, California.
A press release says tickets for both dates will be refunded at point of purchase. The complete remainder of the tour with Every Time I Die, Ghoul and Warbeast will resume as scheduled Saturday November 12 at the House of Blues in Los Angeles, and runs through November 27 at Toad’s Place in New Haven, Connecticut.
The crew at Gun Shy Assassin would again like to extend our condolences to Smoot’s family and the members of Gwar.
