Gwar reveal new guitarist in Kansas cover
Gwar have unveiled new guitarist Pustulus Maximus in a dangerous-to-hear cover of Kansas classic Carry On Wayward Son. Watch the video below with care.
Pustulus replaces Flattus Maximum (Cory Smoot) who tragically died in his sleep on the band’s tour bus last year.
In the video, shot for AV Club Unvercover, Maximus explains of the song: “I hadn’t even heard it till they played it for me the other days. I was convinced they’d written it and I was like, ‘What are you guys doing writing that derivative crappy seventies crap crap. We’re not playing that song ever again.’ Kansas was a big part of a music where bands were often named after geographical locations. Let’s hope that never happens again.”
Among the lyrics Urungus remembers are: “Carry on my wayward son, get the hell off the couch and get a goddamn job, get your ass out the door, don’t you cry no more.”
