Gwar Guitarist Cory Smoot Found Dead

http://www.metalsucks.net/2011/11/03...us-found-dead/

Quote:
Gwar guitarist Cory Smoot (aka Flattus Maximus) is dead. His band members found him deceased this morning as they prepared to cross the Canadian border. MetalSucks just received the following statement by Gwar mastermind Dave Brockie directly from the band’s camp:

It is with a sense of profound loss and tragedy that the members of GWAR must announce the passing of their long time 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.

- Dave Brockie

This sucks more than words can possibly express. Our thoughts and condolences go out to Cory’s friends, his family, and of course his bandmates.

- Everyone at MetalSucks
Glad I saw them before this happened. RIP

This is super upsetting. He was an underrated yet amazing guitarist and definitely died too early.

RIP

Hey, as soon as Powerglove put it on their Facebook I went here and posted it. I didn't look to see if anyone else had made a thread.

I immediately dismissed this as a hoax but then Casey Orr posted a status about it. Holy fuck, this is disappointing. Gwar might just be finished. If they continue the next album is going to sound very different. Corey has been pretty much the main songwriter on the past 4 albums, and he produced the 3 of them. I can only hope they find a new guy (or better yet bring back an old guy) but they're in their late 40's and they lost a very important member. R.I.P.

I'm not a huge fan of this band, that that really is so very sad that we've lost another legend. RIP.
