Eric Moore



Eric Moore, the lead singer of local hard rock band, The Godz, died Friday. He was 67.
According to a statement from the band, Moore had been battling bladder cancer and died the day before the band’s annual Godzfest event in Zanesville. The performance was set to be Moore’s last.
In a statement, The Godz management team said Moore was known for being a “beer-drinking, pistol carrying, blue collar rock-n-roller and the leader of the Godz fans worldwide.”
“Eric Moore was the lead singer of the Godz (sic) here on earth and he has now embarked on a triumphant return to the one and only God in heaven,” the statement said.
Moore had announced his diagnosis with Stage 4 bladder cancer in April and had planned on doing several performances to thank his fans, culminating in the show scheduled for Saturday at The Barn in Zanesville.
The Barn said in a social media posting the event would go on with memories being shared of Moore and The Godz.
