Y'know, I've never been a fan of GWAR. Their shows seem fun and all, but I can't get into the music. With that said, I'm so impressed with how Dave is handling the public. I've known he's an intelligent guy for a while now, but the letter he wrote explaining why the band is continuing on really cemented what a class act this guy is. Great choice retiring the character. If anyone is attending tonight's show, I'd love to hear how it goes.

I didn't think they would retire the character, the only time they ever retired a character that actually played an instrument was Nippelus Erectus. I wonder what a new character would be like.

Man, I've never been a fan of their music, but their shows are so goddamn fun. I don't see how anyone who even remotely likes metal could have a bad time at a Gwar show.

Not true. Lee Beato, Cornelius Carnage, Balsac (the non bear trap wearing bassist), Hans Orifice and Sleazy's brother who was the pre- Orderus vocalist have all been replaced by new characters.

Cory Smoot was a nice dude and a pretty good guitarist, but I wasn't a fan of the direction he took the bands music. Still blows, and I am shocked they are able to continue to play every night when one of their friends and bandmates has just died. I got tickets to the SF show after it was announced that they are still touring, for some reason it made me feel some sense of obligation to see 'em now.

RIP

Forgot about them. I was kinda just thinking about from the time they started making albums. All the pre Hell-O stuff I often forget about.

They did the show as a 4 piece

and Oderus said Flattus went back to his home planet "without our fucking permission"

Did they do the whole show in costume? I know when Dimebag died, they did an unmasked tribute.
