GWAR Frontman Comments On DIMEBAG Murder

In a recent interview with StyleWeekly.com, GWAR frontman Dave Brockie (a.k.a. Oderus Ungurus) was asked how he feels about the recent Ohio shootings of former PANTERA guitarist Darrell Abbott and three others.

"It's an incredible tragedy, a disaster, but the metal community will rally and be stronger because of it," he said. "Darrell touched and influenced so many people, he's gained immortal status. But it's not surprising shit like this happens when you live in a country where getting guns is as easy as getting a loaf of bread.

"Nobody is untouchable, whether you're a rock star or a goddamned crackhead. Everyone here is devastated. The night it happened we found out the second song into our set and just went on autopilot. For the encore we took off our costumes and dedicated a song to Darrell. And we’re doing something tonight in Dallas [his hometown]."
