Dave Brockie
August 30, 1963 – March 23, 2014

dave-brockieDave Brockie is best remembered as lead singer for the popular theatrical shock metal band, GWAR. Going under the stage name, Oderus Urungus, Brockie co-formed the band  in 1984.  GWAR went on to build a legion of fans due in part to their over-the-top sci-fi inspired costumes and comic book violence that ran through their lyrics and live shows.  They released their debut album, Hell-O, in 1988 and 11 more leading up to the 2013 release of, Battle Maximus.  2014 found the band touring in celebration of their 30th anniversary.  Dave Brockie was 50 when he was found dead in his home on March 23, 2014.  Cause of death was not immediately released.  GWAR band mate, Cory Smoot (aka Flattus Maximus) passed away in 2011.

Thanks to Anne Bentley for the assist.
