The Road Behind

It's very rare that any stranger's passing has an effect on me but today my heart was heavy as I learned of the passing of Dave Brockie, frontman of GWAR who performed under the alias of Oderus Urungus.

I've been religiously listening to GWAR (and all their side projects) since 8th grade when the girl I was dating suggested I check them out.  That album was Scumdogs of the Universe and I've been in love with the group ever since.

I'm happy that I got to see them live but am sad that it will never happen again and that I'll never be able to attend the GWAR-B-QUE.
But, death happens and life goes on.  It's all in how you are remembered and Brockie was be remembered as one of my favorite vocalists and lyricists.

There was never a band quite like GWAR before and there shall never be another.  It's rare to be unique.


  1. Grrouch man, it was you who brought GWAR first to my attention. When I heard the news you were the first person I thought of.

  2. i saw them twice at the hard rock in orlando.i didnt know an another member of the band died in 2011.
