The Scumdogs of the Universe have lost their most outrageously creative son. Dave Brockie, better known as GWAR frontman Oderus Urungus, passed away on March 23, 2014, at the age of 50. Always irreverent and highly entertaining, Brockie’s crass onstage persona and bloodletting, body fluid squirting antics could even offend the sensibilities of a swearing sailor. But that’s what he dedicated his life to doing. And anyone who didn’t like it could piss off or get pissed on.
With Brockie at the helm, GWAR’s intergalactic spaceship landed in Richmond, Virginia in 1984 and spewed out obscene lyrics and grotesque stage shows for the next 30 years. The metal world has been deprived of a great performer. Dave “Oderus Urungus” Brockie will be missed.
