Gwar and Slave Pit Inc. would like to thank fans and friends for the outpouring of love after the passing of Dave Brockie. A video message from the band can be seen below, and Gwar also comments:

"Our intention is to honor Dave, preserve his legacy and continue to share his brilliant works with the world. With that being said, GWAR and Slave Pit Inc. are proud to announce the creation of The Dave Brockie Foundation.

"The Dave Brockie Foundation is a charity fund with the mission of promoting the advancement of music, images, letters and performances in the arts. It will endeavor to encourage promising talents, as well as preserving the legacy of Dave’s body of works. It intends to be a support system to those who have dedicated their lives in pursuit of creativity.

"The Dave Brockie Foundation will be a resource for artists in the fields of music, film, literature and all visual arts who cannot find funding through mainstream channels. The DBF will also strive to catalog and preserve Dave's vast collection of original images, recordings and written words, and make them available for the world to appreciate. The foundation's first goal is to finance the creation of a memorial monument in Richmond, Virginia to provide the world with a place to pay respects to the memory of a very cherished man."

Donations can be made to The Dave Brockie Foundation over here.
