UPDATE: GWAR founder Dave Brockie, aka Oderus Urungus, found dead in Richmond home

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.
