Re: “The New Odyssey

WOOOOW! there was so much bullshit in this article. Mike Derks is a fucking ass for saying that Dave ruined their shot with Warner Bros. That is complete catshit. They ALL discussed it and decided that they didn't want a major label telling them how they may and may not express themselves as artists (as that WOULD be what you might call "selling out") and then Dave talked to the guys at metal blade (who weren't particularly happy about being bossed around by Warner Bros either) and they agreed that the band shouldn't have to leave out the song. Dave did not "shoot them in the foot" he was, by far, the most brilliant, most talented, most intelligent one among them, and without him they could NEVER have been what they are. But according to Mr. Derks, he just "shot them in the foot". Further more, these greedy assholes tried to take over Dave's estate after his death and when they found out that they wouldn't be able to do that, they stole any and everything of Dave's that was worth any money, hid it, claim they don't know where it is, and left whatever they didn't want for Dave's 90 year old father to come and clear away. They are currently being sued for all that they stole. Among the stolen belongings was Dave's Xbox which was taken, without any permission, THE DAY AFTER he died, by the bass player and his delinquent girlfriend and given to her teenage son who then used it drain the entirety (that's right, everything) of Dave's checking account...They now refuse to repay the stolen money and are taking the kid to a theme park so that he may ride roller coasters (They too, are about to be sued). I'd say that his coming down with testicular cancer is what I'd call KARMA ...The band turned Dave's death into a cash grab under the guise of "charity" with this bogus "Dave Brockie fund" but it's certainly no charity and is more like the Drummer's retirement fund. They are in fact using this money to fund things like their new GWAR bar and other endeavors (some "charity" fund, huh?) and while they are making tens of thousand of dollars in Dave's name with this "charity", they actually demanded that his father reimburse them for the mere 1000 they spent on Dave's cremation expenses. They then refused to hand over to Mr. Brockie the ashes of his own son, and when they were chewed out for that, by one of Dave's closest friends, they finally agreed to hand over the ashes. But what they instead did was have the 90 year-old father wait outside in the summer heat until one of them came out with a plastic sandwich container (I'm not even kidding) which contained a small portion of the man's ashes. I'd like to ad that Dave's father was an aeronautical engineer who is plenty comfortable financially, and again, he is 90 years old; why on fucking earth would he need to "step forward for his son's piece of the pie"??! That has got to be one of the most ludicrous, most delusional things I've ever heard. These dirt bags are truly sickening, unbelievable people, and I could go on about the tacky, tasteless, heartless shit that they've done in the midst of Dave's death but at the moment. I feel like may just vomit after reading this ridiculous article.
