Cory Smoot passes away

Cory Smoot, “Gwar” guitarist, died on November 3rd coronary artery thrombosis, which was brought on by a pre-existing condition.  Gwar is a popular band within the metal community.  According to a statement on the Gwar website, “The response from the U.S. metal community and especially the whole international GWAR family has been overwhelmingly supportive…these GWAR fans need the chance to pay their respects to Cory, and cancelling any shows would deprive them of that.”
