I think I have 5 notches on my belt. Not a mighty claim in the least. I know a guy who's seen them 60+ times. I'm sure there are some even bigger nuts.

Seeing them with all my friends Junior year of high school is still the most fun I have ever had at a show.

The first time I saw them (and the first time I attended a metal show) was easily the most violent show I have ever attended. It was at a small venue in Richmond on New Years Eve, packed with punks, metalheads and locals that basically just beat the crap out of each other through GWAR's set. There was as much real blood covering the people and venue as there was the fake stuff.

Saw them a couple of times, the best of which was on the Scumdogs tour in Edmonton, AB at the old Bronx. I was a young kid (~15ish), and I remember my father giving me a ride home afterwards and being pretty concerned about my "injuries". They always took the fake blood to the extreme. Killer showmen.

I won a Gwar competion put on by Metal Hammer in about 1992.
Music for Nations sent me loads of stuff - Hell-o and AMBD cds, a press photo, tshirt and a VHS of Phallus in Wonderland (which had just been effectively banned from sale in the UK at that time).

I still remember watching the video and being amazed and revolted and confused all at the same time.

Will be spinning some Gwar later....

Shitty news indeed. Oderus can't be replaced. I saw GWAR 10 or 12 times, but now I wish I had went to more shows, as they were always the best party in town.

i always wanted to see these guys, but never made the effort.....they seemed so prominent that i didn't think it was a big deal and i'd just catch them one day.

i'm an idiot apparently.

damn shame, this guy was not only funny but had decent wits about him-i liked his interviews on Opie & Anthony and The Red Eye + never forget the infamous Springer appearance.....was refreshing to see someone in Metal whose not a dumbass not take themselves so seriously-something that seems to keep getting worse and worse over the years.

Rest In Death you scumdog piece of shit! gonna rock the Hell-O (my favorite, sleazy as fuck, doesn't get enough love) hard this week
