Sad news to all who like their rock with a theatrical kick to it. Corey Smoot, who performed since 2002 under the name "Flattus Maximus" was found dead on the GWAR tour bus today following a show in Minneapolis, MN. Manager Jack Flanagan and record label Metal Blade said Cory Smoot's body was discovered before the bus crossed into Canada. It is unclear as to cause of death. Lead singer Dave Brockie, also known as "Oderus Urungus," said in a statement that "at this point we are just dealing with the loss of our dear friend and brother" and asked for privacy.
