The late great Oderus Urungus (Dave Brockie) was one of the first people I met when I moved to Richmond 33 years ago.

Out with Robert E. Lee and in with… Oderus Urungus?
A new petition is calling for a statue of the late GWAR frontman ― real name David Brockie ― to be erected in his adopted home state of Virginia. And it notes there’s an opening in Richmond, where a statue of the Confederate general is scheduled for removal.
Although Brockie was born in Canada, his family moved to Virginia when he was a child. He was a cofounder of GWAR, a shock-rock band known for its wild costumes and a violent stage show where copious amounts of fake blood and other fluids would spew into an ecstatic audience.
