Confirmed: GWAR Frontman Dave Brockie Dead at 50

We had hoped it was a sick, cruel internet hoax, but sadly GWAR’s manager Jack Flanagan has confirmed Dave Brockie, AKA Oderus Urungus, has passed away aged 50. In a statement just released, Flanagan said:

“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 PM EST Sunday March 23,2014.  His body was found Sunday by his band mate at his home in Richmond, VA. 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.
My main focus right now is to look after my band mates and his family. More information regarding his death shall be released as the details are confirmed.”

Our thoughts are with Brockie’s loved ones and band mates at this time.
