I’m very sad to report the passing of Gwar frontman/founder and Holliston co-star Dave Brockie (AKA Oderus Urungus). Details are scarce, but he was found dead in his home earlier this week at the age of 50. Anyone who’s ever had the pleasure of seeing a Gwar show knows what a huge loss this is for the metal community. Rest in peace.
