I have been a GWAR fan for 20 years. Dave Brockie’s humor and creativity have always been amazing. Gwar was always my favorite band to see live. I’m so sad that he has been taken from this earth so soon. RIP Oderus Urungus and Dave Brockie. The world is a lesser place without you.

RICHMOND, Va. (WTVR) – GWAR founder and vocalist Dave Brockie was found dead in his Richmond home Sunday.
Brockie’s friend and former GWAR member Chris Bopst confirmed the death to CBS 6 producer Chris Westfall. Richmond Police also confirmed Brockie’s death.
“At approximately 6:53 p.m. on Sunday, Richmond Police were called to a residence in the 4800 block of West Seminary Avenue for a report of a deceased individual,” Richmond Police spokeswoman Dionne Waugh wrote in an email. “When officers arrived, they found David M. Brockie, 50, deceased inside the home.”
Detectives do not suspect foul play at this time, she added. The Medical Examiner’s Office will determine Brockie’s cause of death.
“My main focus right now is to look after my band mates and his family,” GWAR manager Jack Flanagan said in a statement. “More information regarding his death shall be released as the details are confirmed.”
