Gwar - Guitarist Found Dead


Corey Smoot, aka Flattus Maximus, guitarist of US alternative metallers Gwar was found dead this morning, November 3rd, as the band were about to cross the border for their upcoming Return Of The Maggot Tour.

Frontman Dave Brockie (a.k.a. Oderus Urungus) has released the following statement to MetalSucks: "It is with a sense of profound loss and tragedy that the members of Gwar must announce the passing of their longtime guitarist and beloved friend Cory Smoot, also known to thousands of metal fans worldwide as Flattus Maximus.

Cory was found deceased this morning as the band prepared for a border crossing. There is no word as to the cause of death and the members of Gwar are completely shocked and devastated that this has occurred. At this point there is no word on arrangements and the disposition of the remainder of Gwar's current North American tour, nor are there any details regarding long-term plans.

At this point we are just dealing with the loss of our dear friend and brother, one of the most talented guitar players in metal today. We ask that our fans and the media be respectful of our request for privacy for those that have suffered this terrible loss. A full statement will be coming in the next day or so, in the meantime please give your thoughts and your prayers to Cory, his family, and all the people that love him."

What kind of comentaries were those?? you're really sick, you sorry ass idiots show respect and don't say morbid speculations....wait 'till the forense inform.

These sorry ass idiots probably didn't mean offense but were merely speculating as to how a musician met his end. You can't tell people not to comment...the internet doesn't work that way.


It's amazing how unsensitive and disrespectful ppl can be... Well, it's seems to be your behaviour before a human death.

Ya, a human death. I don't want to get too off-topic here but human death isn't exactly something I concern myself much with. People die all the time, a lot of people I don't know and never will know. This guitarist for example. I don't mourn for strangers and I don't expect strangers to mourn for me.

And like I said, my goal wasn't to be offensive. I was speculating as to how he may have come to meet his end, nothing more. I think this is the part where I ask you to kindly remove your tampon.

Are you done yet? I speculated as to why someone died, nothing more. I'm really not sure what you hope to get out of this little back-and-forth.
