Gwar's Dave Brockie Gets Flaming Send Off
And to mark the event, Brockie's stage costume was set ablaze in a Viking funeral pyre on the water. Lamb Of God frontman Randy Blythe, who was a close friend of the singer, said: "Watching my friend Dave's costume go up in flames in front of a thousand fans was so much more intense for me that the private memorial for friends and family we had on April Fool's Day.
"I spoke at both of them and both times were sad. But watching his alter ego burn tore me up way more than the first memorial. Maybe because there was Dave, the human and my friend who just left us; and then there was Oderus, who was something else entirely. To watch his stage gear burn was like watching part of my life go up in flames."
