There was not much to report on the cause of GWAR frontman Dave Brockie's death this weekend. He was found in his home by his roommate, and that's all we knew.

On Monday, TMZ reported that Brockie was found "sitting upright in his chair" and a law enforcement official told TMZ there "were no drugs found, as far as I know."

Well, it turns out he didn't know everything. Today, some new information surfaced from local Richmond news outlet, CBS 6, WTVR. The station spoke to law enforcement officials who said they are investigating the death as drug related based on what they found at Brockie's house at the time of his death. Ultimately, it is up to the Medical Examiner to decide and they are awaiting toxicology reports which take six weeks or more.

Should this be drug related, it would be an even more tragic end to the life and career of Dave Brockie, especially considering the fate of Corey Smoot, aka Flattus Maximus who died of a heart-related condition in 2011, which most believe was due to drug use.

Hopefully, this will serve as a wake up call to other musicians. Doing hard drugs will catch up with you.
