R.I.P. David Brookie

David Brookie ist am Wochenende im Alter von nur 50 Jahren gestorben. Ich hatte nie eine besonders ausgeprägte GWAR-Phase, mir war das immer 'ne ganze Ecke zu albern, aber ich hab' die immer respektiert. R.I.P. Oderus Urungus.

The founder and lead singer of renowned metal band Gwar, David Brockie, has died, numerous sources close to the band tell Style Weekly.

A member of the Richmond Police Department confirmed early Monday that the 50-year-old musician was found dead in his home Sunday between 3 p.m. and 7 p.m. by his roommate.

"Dave was one of the funniest, smartest, most creative and energetic persons I've known," former Gwar bassist Mike Bishop says. "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."

David Brockie, aka Oderus Urungus of Gwar, RIP
