The father of late Gwar frontman David Brockie claims the band stole the cremated remains of his son and won’t return them. He was given a small amount of ashes in a plastic bag.
He also claims the band set up a charitable fund in Brockie’s name and selling merchandise using the late lead singer’s likeness without permission.
His father’s $1 million suit against the band also claims the band stole his bass guitars, artwork, tour souvenirs, a gold record and more. He also said the band tried to take away his control of his son’s estate.
Gwar has denied stealing the ashes….. because that’s what he would have wanted.
Brockie didn’t leave a will which has caused arguments between the band and his father over who owns the rights to the late singer’s likeness.
Money that was raised through his likeness was given to a charitable arts foundation.
The band said Brockie wanted some of his ashes to be spread throughout Richmond, Virginia so he could keep an eye on the band.
