That is young, sad. I have no idea who this man is though - my record collection does not feature much metal (none).

Bee Haven will be crushed. :-(

So will GeezLouise

CocoaBeachBunny said...

That's odd. Maybe the new Spanish girl, too?

sandybrook said...

No not her. GWAR is huge in Aussieland.

Roommates?

Beavis and Butthead will also be devastated

Rest in Peace. Fifty is too young. Hope it was sudden and painless. I've heard them on the radio, but until I Wiki'd I didn't know about their theatre, clever names, and costumes. Brilliant! (Maximus Pustulus, Oderus Urungus).

Don't know this guy or his band but may he rest in peace and God bless.

One of my best concerts EVER. Not even a metal fan, got dragged by friends. Walked in with a white tshirt, walked out with it red and my mind blown. Changed my perspective on rock shows forever. RIP

Not my cup of tea but RIP. Remember when Gwar would always be on Jerry Springer?

Sherry said...

Well I just educated myself. Someone was/is very creative with their costumes.

Wow is all I can say. Not a metal fan but sounds like someone enjoyed the shows.

And yes B Smears/Bee Haven/Rach Around and maybe that other one will be upset.

RIP. Hope you keep rocking up there from the Metal Metal Land in the sky

I worked at a concert venue back in college. Next to ICP, GWAR was the strangest show I'd witnessed, but the fans were so absolutely in love with them. Sad to hear someone died so young.

LowKey said...

@Derek: Yes, I do!

One of the funniest men in show business. Terrible loss.
