Cory Smoot, the guitarist for the band GWAR was found dead on their tour bus Wednesday night after a show at First Ave.
The cause of death has not been determined. Smoot's body was found by band mates on their tour bus after waking him to cross the border into Canada.
"They're actually not the kind of guys known as partiers; they're really sold guys," Conrad Sverkerson, First Avenue stage manager, said.
Fans of the band were both shocked and saddened by the loss.
"The members of GWAR are completely shocked and devastated," Dave Brockie, GWAR band leader, said in a statement.
