The Existing Members Of GWAR Have Been Left Angry And Upset By A New Lawsuit Filed By The Father Of Late Frontman Dave Brockie, In Which He Alleges The Bandmates Have Stolen His Son's Ashes.
William Brockie is suing the metal band's surviving members for stealing his son's remains and possessions, and refusing to hand over the deceased singer's concert earnings from his final tour.
Brockie's bandmates have now fired back at the plaintiff's claims, insisting all his allegations are false.
A statement from the band reads: "We did not steal Dave Brockie's ashes, or anything else that belonged to him. In fact, all of the items mentioned in the article, including Dave's ashes, have been available to his attorneys for weeks."
Brockie, Sr. also claims GWAR illegally held onto guitars and a gold record, but the bandmates insist the items were given to lawyers weeks ago, and the Brockie estate administrators have been notified of their whereabouts for collection.
The Gwar rockers allege Brockie's ashes were split up because their late leader wanted a portion of his remains scattered in Richmond, Virginia's Hollywood Cemetery, while some were left to be kept at Gwar's headquarters, per Brockie's wishes.
Brockie, aka Gwar frontman Oderus Urungus, died from a heroin overdose in March, 2014.
