It’s been nearly a week now and I’m still trying to get my head around the death of Dave Brockie.

I’m not a fan of GWAR.I get it, it’s transgressive art (and let’s face it, I like transgressive film – so I understand liking that kind of music). I kind of like the idea of it, but the music doesn’t appeal to me.  Dave on the other hand really did appeal to me. He was funny and friendly. I liked seeing him do guest spots and really enjoyed the bits he was doing on Holliston as Oderus. The last time we talked I was trying to put him in touch with the Danny Bonaduche show (Danny always talks about GWAR – but half the time isn’t entirely certain that’s who he’s talking about…) and I’m so sad I’ll never see that interview happen. I’m going to miss this guy.
