Yes, you read the headline correctly. Unfortunately, Cory Smoot, AKA Flattus Maximus, was found dead this morning while the band was planning to cross the Canadian border. I was at work until now and I am just now finding this out. Holy shit, that’s insane. He was indeed a talented guitarist and my condolences go out to his friends and family. You can read the press release straight from Mr. Dave Brockie AKA Oderus Urungus after the jump.
