Found this out when I got home from work. Shitty, shitty thing to read first thing home.
I'm a fan... wait... I'm a HUGE GWAR fan. I always say they're the best band in the universe, and I mean that. Yea, other bands are better, but man... GWAR are just... fucking GWAR!!
I was gutted when I found out. I've seen GWAR 15+ times at this point, and 7 with Cory. I met him on two occasions and he was friendly each time. Solid player and a really cool dude. Hope is wasn't drugs, cause... that would disappoint. The band on a whole have been drug free for years, so it would honestly be a shock if it was. Plus the dude was only 34. So damn young.
He will be missed, that's for sure.
RIP Cory "Flattus Maximus" Smoot
