Gwar's Dave Brockie

Memorial Marker For Late Gwar Frontman Dave Brockie To Be Unveiled In August


A memorial marker for Gwar‘s late frontman Dave “Oderus Urungus” Brockie will be unveiled at the Hollywood Cemetery in Richmond, VA at 02:00 PM on August 30th, 2019. The date itself would have marked Brockie‘s 56th birthday had he not passed away in 2014 due to a heroin overdose. The public are invited to the unveiling with a free party to be held the next day (August 31st) at the GWARbar in Richmond. ‘Gwar tribute band’ Rawg will be performing at that party.

Speaking of the marker, Gwar commented:

“We thank the many people who donated time and money to make this a reality. We hope the marker will provide a long-needed place for Brockie‘s friends, family, and fans to pay their respects to this wonderful and deeply talented human being, and of course, to Dave‘s famous creation; Oderus Urungus, who will always be remembered as one of the greatest frontmen in rock and roll history.”
