RIP: Oderus Urungus


The Gwar frontman is dead at age 50. Gwar had a big comics crossover of inspiration and I know they played Comic-Con several times.

    I’ve been a lifelong fan of GWAR and their various side projects (most notably X-Cops) and have just noticed that I’m, in fact, in a GWAR T-shirt today – completely coincidentally.

    Dave Brockie (aka Oderus Urungus) was one of the greatest live performers I’ve ever had the pleasure to see (many, many times) – his fans will miss him, and the deluge of blood and cuttlefish ejaculate, dearly.

    The world is a less fun place today.

    Gonna miss his Halloween adventures in Detroit.
    No one can ever fill those giant rubber monster boots.
    Good night sour prince.

    I got the pleasure of meeting Gwar backstage at a fundraiser in Richmond many years ago. They were the nicest guys and I remember Oderus being pretty damned funny. I was very sad to hear of his passing.
