We are still reeling from the news of the passing of GWAR frontman Dave Brockie, known to human scum as Oderus Urungus. Being in the business for 30 years, Brockie touched many musicians. We've already posted Lamb of God frontman Randy Blythe's touching tribute, here are some of the others that have been pouring in today on social media:
RIP Dave Brockie. Fuck…

Ah shit… R.i.p Dave Brockie. One of my favorite people ever, and a good friend. :( Person closest to his primal nature of all times.

If there ever were a man deserving of the title of legend, it's Dave Brockie. Rest in peace, Oderus.

My favorite interview quote from @TheRealOderus – "Declare war on the entire planet, appoint GWAR as his cabinet, invade the sun."

RIP Dave Brockie. I can't believe it. Hilarious, satirical, creative pioneer. He made the genre so much fun. God dammit.

@TheRealOderus Dave, You were a creative genius. Thank you for bringing so much joy to me and my friends as we grew up with GWAR. RIP

Dave Brockie did far more for far longer than anyone. I hope the burial of Oderus is a national spectacle. Gwar is the peak of DIY creations
