GWAR Tour Still Going Ahead

Following the tragic news that Cory Smoot,image001 better known by his stage name Flattus Maximus, GWAR and their management have confirmed that they still to still go ahead with their 12 date UK tour in January next year. A full statement regarding the guitar position will follow as soon as possible.

Frontman Dave Brockie, otherwise known as Oderus Urungus, has officially announced the retirement of Flattus Maximus in honour of Cory:  “I heard Cory tell a story about how some 20 years ago he was fourteen years old, at his first GWAR show, grabbing at the rubber feet of our then-current Flattus, and how blown away he was at the fact that now HE was the one getting his feet pulled by the same kid that he used to be. Cory was always in awe of the patterns of life and went through it with a wide-eyed amazement that translated through his playing. I’ve never known anyone who could pick up literally any instrument and rock it the first time he touched it, and more than that make it look easy. Behind that rubber monster outfit, and sometimes even obscured by it, was one of the most talented and beautiful people I have ever known. I know everyone who’s life was touched by Cory truly loved him, as do we, his bandmates and brothers.”
