GWAR PERFORM TRIBUTE TO CORY SMOOT

Gwar paid tribute to their late guitarist Cory Smoot (‘Flattus Maximus’) at a recent concert in Portland, Oregon.

.

The show saw the remaining members perform, without their costumes, songs such as “Maggots” and “Sick Of You”, as well as an impromptu tribute to Smoot.

.

Gwar have decided to continue their North American tour despite Cory’s death, but will retire the character of Flattus Maximus in Smoot’s honour.

.

“Although the great temptation would be to return home, curl into a foetal position, and mourn, we can’t do that,” Gwar explained. “Cory would want us to go on and would be pissed if we didn’t.”

.

 Smoot joined Gwar in 2002 and was the fifth guitarist to assume the role of Flattus Maximus.

.

 “Flattus has decided to return to his beloved ‘Planet Home’, and will never return to this mudball planet again. And this is a sadder place for that.”
