    So it looks like some form of GWAR will be playing at Riot Fest in Chicago in September, but no word on what form that will be yet....

    Yeah, I got the email announcement a couple nights ago. Why would they go on without him? I know they're doing the BBQ thing as a tribute, which I get. But Riot Fest? I think RF maybe forgot to remove their name. Stupid festival anyways.

    I read something that Riot Fest is keeping their spot warm for Gwar...apparently they will carry on...I hate to say it, but everyone is replaceable these days...

    Well, it looks like Beefcake The Mighty has rejoined the band.

    I don't know... this is starting to feel a bit too much like KI77 for me.

    The GWARbar was a dream of Brockie, and the remaining members of the band are doing all they can to make the restaurant a smashing successs.

    Hopefully, this is just the rest of them doing what Brockie wanted rather than a full fledged cash-in.....

    Well, according to the State Medical Examiner's report, Brockie died from an accidental heroin overdose.

    What an avoidable, wasteful death.

    Yep...disappointing result from the Medical Examiners report....It makes me sad when talented, energetic people with energy, motivation and ideas and what appears to be every reason for living go and throw it away like this...

    Very sad.
