“If all goes well... It will be erected at Hollywood Cemetery later this year," the post reads.

Brockie, whose ashes are buried at the cemetery, died of a heroin overdose in Richmond in 2014.

“The death of Oderus was an almost insurmountable loss for GWAR, but Dave’s death was a far greater loss for the world," the band posted.
