Gwar To Continue North American Tour

(Rock News Desk) Gwar frontman Dave Brockie says the band will continue their North American tour despite the death of Cory Smoot, because the guitarist would have wanted it that way.

The science-fiction monster metallers found Smoot, also known as Flattus Maximus, dead on their tour bus on the journey between Minneapolis and Canada. But they played on and Brockie, alias Oderus Urungus, says they'll continue to do so.

He tells fans: "After a lot of consideration, we have decided to carry on with the tour. Although the great temptation would be to return home, curl into a foetal position and mourn, we can't do that. First off, Cory wouldn't want that. He would want us to go on and would be pissed if we didn't. Plus we know the fans don't want us to quit. They are going to want a chance to come to grips with their loss, and there is no better place to do that than at a Gwar show. Though it's hard to believe, I think we all would feel a lot worse if we stopped. For better or worse we have to see this through." more on this story
