Style Weekly, based in the band’s hometown of Richmond, Virginia, reports that Brockies body was found, at home, by his roommates on Sunday (March 23). They report that a member of Richmond police confirmed Brockie was found in his home between 3 and 7pm.
Speaking to Style Weekly, former bassist Mike Bishop paid tribute to the singer, better known by his stagename Oderus Urungus. “Dave was one of the funniest, smartest, most creative and energetic persons I’ve known,” he said. “He was brash sometimes, always crass, irreverent, he was hilarious in every way. But he was also deeply intelligent and interested in life, history, politics and art.”
The death has not, as yet, been confirmed by any representative for Brockie or the group.
