GWAR mourning death of Cory Smoot

Heavy metal band GWAR are mourning the death of their lead guitarist, who has been found dead on their tour bus.

Manager Jack Flanagan and record label Metal Blade say Cory Smoot was found early on Thursday just as they were about to enter Canada following a show in Minneapolis.

It's unclear what caused Smoot's death or how old he was.

Smoot performed with the band, known for its grotesque costumes, stage antics and vulgar lyrics, since 2002 under the name Flattus Maximus.

Flanagan says there's no word yet on funeral arrangements or the rest of the tour.

Lead singer Dave Brockie, also known as Oderus Urungus, says the band is just dealing the loss and called Smoot "one of the most talented guitar players in metal today."

The band are known for lampooning well known figures including Sarah Palin, Lady Gaga and Paris Hilton.
