I saw Gwar in 1989 here in Boston. We went to the show because it was all ages and we went to all those shows, had no idea what they were. We were shocked to see huge viking guys walking through the crowd to the stage and more shocked to see them hack the head off a dummy dressed as a redneck and fake blood fly all over us. We went to the show the next day and saw them again as their show got bigger and bigger. They were unique, there were no other bands do stage shows of that nature. They were never hip, always played it straight if of course campy w/ metal, hard rock, and hard core. very sad about this RIP Oderus

I never got to see them. but I have a few of their old videos, like "Live In Antarttica" and a couple others, and I agree with everything you said- GWAR were truly unique and so bizarre that you just had to stray tuned to see what they were gonna' do next!  They definitely left their mark on the world of music, that's for sure!   

Rest in peace, head Scumdog, here's one for the long road home  Cheers

Such a bummer. GWAR's "America Must Be Destroyed" (1992) is one of my favorite 90s albums.

I always wanted to see them live but never got to it.  I did have a chance to back in college but I blew it. They played a club in Staten Island, NY where I went to school on Halloween night (is there a MORE perfect band to see on Halloween night?) circa 1991, but like an idiot I passed on it and went to a Halloween party on campus with some girl that I was hoping to hook up with. Nothing happened with her, so I obviously chose poorly, I should've gone to see GWAR dammit!!

I've been kicking myself for that decision for the past 20+ years... and now even more so!!

R.I.P. Oderus.

His passing was due a heroin overdose. He must have been "dabbling", as he didn't seem to have a history of substance abuse. That's according to fellow musicians anyhow... R.I.P.

And these hopeless lamentations of death.
