GWAR to continue on without David Brokie?

From: http://www.metalinjection.net/latest...-david-brockie

Quote:
Last night, I was looking at the lineup for Riot Fest 2014. Slayer was announced, Clutch was announced, Gwar was announced… wait, Gwar?!

Yeah, according to The PRP, Gwar are scheduled to play the September 12 through 14 dates of the festival in Chicago and I am extremely confused. Are the band going on without Oderus Urungus? Are they going to do a Suicide Silence-type deal and do a bunch of songs with guest vocals? At first I thought this was something only The PRP was reporting, but Riot Fest's Facebook seems to have the poster for the event as well:


Personally, it would be hard to accept anybody but Brockie behind the mic for a Gwar show. At the same time it would be selfish of us fans to think that the rest of the band shouldn't go on with their careers as musicians in Gwar (or otherwise), a job they've been doing for 30 years, as they basically know nothing else. So we'll take a wait and see attitude to how this plays out.

Update: MetalSucks reached out to a band rep who confirmed this is not a mistake and that “Riot Fest is keeping GWAR’s spot warm for them and something will happen.”
That's quite interesting to see! I wonder who will replace David then. I'm sure we'll hear something soon.

No, unless the Riot Fest thread was buried into a QR thread.

I thought this was important enough to start a new thread over.

Dimebag is going to do a guest drum solo on their first EP in 1983.

Dave Brockie, April 23, 2013
Quote:
I’ve always said GWAR is the band that could last 1000 years. I don’t know how long we’ll be doing this; how long this current line up will be doing GWAR- probably years and years- but I was completely serious when I said we would probably have other people replace us at some point and the band would just continue on and on. Son of Oderus? I don’t know if anyone will keep up with Oderus but he’ll probably have a kid at some point who will probably kill and eat him and take his job.

From what I understand from what some friends in the RVA scene told me a little while back, Brockie was going to retire in two years anyway. I'm very sure that GWAR will continue.

The rumor on Reddit and The PRP is that Andrew WK may be the replacement. But, y'know, it's Reddit and The PRP, so take it for what it is.
