Word has reached the RVA Mag offices that the almighty aliens of GWAR are unveiling a monument to their fallen founder and leader, Dave Brockie, in Hollywood Cemetery, perhaps Richmond’s most historic final resting place.
The unveiling will take place on Friday, August 30 at 2 PM, and all are invited to join and pay tribute. There will also be a free party the next day, Saturday August 31, at the band’s very own GWARbar.
“The erection of this monument has been a long time coming,” stated GWAR in a press release — we see what you did there, guys. “We are grateful and happy we can finally do this for Dave. We thank the many people who donated time and money to make this a reality.”
“We hope the marker will provide a long-needed place for Brockie’s friends, family, and fans to pay their respects to this wonderful and talented human being, and of course, to Dave’s famous creation, Oderus Urungus, who will always be remembered as one of the greatest frontmen in rock history.”
