According to a number of online sources, Dave Brockie the lead singer of GWAR, also known as Oderus Urungus was found dead in his home Sunday, March 23rd, 2014 at approximately 7pm. Police don’t suspect foul play and the body has been sent off for an autopsy. We were lucky enough to interview him for our 4th issue in 2012 and it was a dream come true. The man was witty, intelligent and stacked with tons of great ideas. We want to express our deepest condolences to the band, friends and family and he will be truly missed by anyone who knew him or his craft.
For a number of years now we’ve been absolutely obsessed with GWAR. Seen them live a few times and watched hours on end of their hilarious videos. We got a chance to sit down with Dave Brockie (a.k.a. Oderus Urungus) in the summer and interviewed him for our 4th issue. A must-read if you haven’t already.
