No this thread isn't a joke. The guitar player for the costume metal band GWAR was found dead today. They certainly are an odd bunch but I can say from experience that they put on a helluva show. Really more in the vein of performance art than music but they guys all have some very tight chops on their instruments.
I had the opportunity to go see GWAR when they came through town and I can best describe their show as a bizarre mix or music and art. These guys are out doing what they love,.
Here's a link to an article on the mater.
And here are a couple music videos of GWAR. I'm not gonna say graphic content but definitely not safe for work.
