"Everyone is in shock." Brockie's death was also reportedly confirmed by another former GWAR bassist, Michael Bishop. Brockie was 50 years old.

There's no reports on how he died but I'm guessing drug overdose.

Bullshit.

The guys been doing this since 1984, at 50 years old he has a tv career including commentating and acting, sells art, has a family and is truly a stand up guy. You don't pull that off being a junkie.



[link to gunshyassassin.com]

I was sad when Cory Smoot died unexpectedly in November. The guitarist left behind a pregnant wife, and all I could think about was that baby, and how she’d never meet her dad.


Last night, Gwar’s Dave Brockie posted a picture of that little girl, who was born little more than a week ago to Cory’s widow, Jaime Smoot.

That is the picture Brockie posted of him holding little baby Corie.

“Here’s the most perfect baby I have ever seen,” Brockie writes online.

“ held her for like 20 minutes and she didn’t wake up or cry or nothing,” says Dave. “Thanks everybody for all of the amazing support, donations, and love in general which you guys as fans have been sending us non-stop since we lost our dear brother, Cory Smoot. And the respect with which you delivered it…to say you guys are the best is a woefully inadequate way of putting it. Hail Flattus Minimus!”

She is a cute baby. Most babies aren’t. They’re all squished together and shit. She’s a cute kid.




FHMonline.com: If we drug tested you right now, what would we find?

Brockie: Weed — and tons of it. We're just a bunch of stoners. We like to drink beer and smoke pot. But one of the things that GWAR has avoided, which I think is a big part of our longevity, is hard drugs. We've seen it fuck up a lot of people and destroy a lot of bands. This band is just too demanding and it really takes all of your effort and energy, especially wearing a 50-pound armored suit in front of a bunch of people. And then you have the Sounds of the Underground tour where the shows are outdoor — it's really fucking hot. I was reading this interview with Corey [Taylor, lead vocalist] from SLIPKNOT and he was bitching about how hot his overalls were. Put on my shit, son. I bet you won't last five minutes. He's a big whiner.

He may have died from a mold infection from wearing the unsanitized suit. I saw a documentary where he said the suit was terribly rancid and he never cleaned it.

Re: Update - GWAR lead singer found dead from an accidental heroine overdose.
GWAR was one of the greatest stage acts ever created.
The themes are very 'punk rock' ie shocking for shocking's sake, with a ton of horror mixed in.
They were geniuses.
The complexity of pulling off shows like theirs' for so many years is a testament to how hard they worked on their craft. True artists.

anyone who reduces these people to 'drug addicts' needs to f*ck themselves

Re: Update - GWAR lead singer found dead from an accidental heroine overdose.
this fucking sucks...

we used to play occasional shows w/ Dave Brockie Experience - he was a cool motherfucker and anybody that wants to assume his death was due to drug use or being a junkie can go suck a dick....

RIP brother- you'll be missed.

thanks for posting OP.
No fear. No distractions.
