The father of Dave Brockie has sued surviving members of GWAR. He’s accused them of stealing his son’s cremated remains, bass guitars and artwork, according to court documents released on Monday.
NBC reports the lawsuit, filed in Richmond, Virginia, sought $1 million in compensatory damages plus punitive damages for alleged breach of contract and unauthorised use of Dave Brockie’s image, as well as the return of Brockie’s remains.
“Immediately after Dave Brockie’s death, the remaining active members of GWAR … set out on a course of action to capitalize on the death of Dave Brockie,” the lawsuit charges.
The suit names the band’s surviving members as defendants, along with their management company, Slave Pit Inc., and an affiliated company.
