Rozz Williams

1963 - 1998

Rozz Williams, 34, singer, lyricist, poet, artist, and musician was known in the early 1980s as the King of Death Rock.

Born Roger Alan Painter, on November 6, 1963, son of Bob and Gladys Painter, adopted the name Rozz Williams, and formed the band Christian Death at the age of 17. Christian Death established a cult following in the United States and Europe with such albums as Only Theatre of Pain, Catastrophe Ballet, and Ashes, revealing the dark side of life.

In 1987, Williams and his wife, Eva O., formed the group Shadow Project in San Francisco, and recorded a total of four albums, with From the Heart being the last studio album recorded by Rozz.

Williams also became interested in spoken-word and performance art, recording and performing under the name Premature Ejaculation, and recording spoken-word albums such as Every King a Bastard Son and The Whorse’s Mouth, among others. He was also involved with the bands EXP and Bloodflag. The last project completed was a short film called PIG, directed by Nico B, with Rozz Williams credited for “original story, soundtrack, and starring role.” After his death, his life work, including never-before-seen artwork by Rozz, was presented in the book The Art of Rozz Williams.

Rozz Williams died on April 1st, 1998.

    Thank you for the impact you have had on the numerous lives you have touched throughout your years, whether known or unknown. Unfortunately, I was only 2 years old when you passed, so I’ll never have the honor to meet you. Alas, I will visit you at your final resting place one day. You are a truly one-of-a-kind, beautiful beautiful soul that has left too soon. I hope that you’ve found peace wherever you are.

    Thank you for your music. It has helped me so much. Can relate to some of the things you went through. Wished you sorted out your demons and you would’ve still be here on earth. Hope you are at peace now and free and happy.

  8. Thank you for everything, Rozz.

    So…I started putting far more thought into this than I should have been and stressing out over what to say. I decided that was bad, so this will probably just turn into rambling. Which is probably just as bad, but atleast it will come from the heart. I absolutely hate the fact that I’m too young to have ever had the chance to meet Rozz…but just from his lyrics and such I feel like he’s an old friend and I really do miss him everyday. I’ve recently started a fansite devoted to him, and I plan on getting a tattoo of his lyrics soon. I really hope that, if he’s watching me from where ever he is, he’s proud of me. I refuse to let people forget about such a beautiful and talented man. He left us too soon…I feel like I need him…But, I love him so much and really hope that he’s finally happy now. Thank you for everything you’ve given us, Rozz. I’ll never forget you.

    in all my years i have never felt so deeply for someone, though you are gone the remains you have left behind are greatly alive. i hope you can see the wonders you have done to this world. i dont know why you ended it but either way i admire the fact lasted so long. if it wasnt for you i would be dead as well, but i hold on to your memories. my misery had me listen to only theater of pain and paths of sorrow and i truly cannot find any other form of music that has so deeply affected my thoughts and patterns of thinking. i love you.

  39. We Miss You

    Rozz… I was something like 11 or 10 years old when I heard Spiritual Cramp on my sisters computer… Seems like yesterday…. Artistically, you sent ripples through the world, you dont know how many people you inspired who will inspire people who will inspire people, rozz you can never truly die… Whenever I am engulfed in sadness or depression or whatever my daily plague is, it all just turns to shit when I hear your voice.

    Dominic D.

  40. Beautiful....

    Rozz, you were an amazing influence in my life. You helped me through the recent death of my grandfather. All I needed to do when the darkness threatened to completely engulf was listen to your beautiful voice. Your pain moved me through the unbearable to a more accepting place. The one time I met you was amazing, you had the most beautiful calm. You will always be remebered.

  52. Inspiration

    I have to agree with Nicky. I feel the same way. I was first introduced to Rozz’ music about 2 years ago, and it has been an inspiration to me since. Rozz’ messages will live forever in his music, poetry, artwork and in the lives of those he touched and inspired. Rozz was an incredible artistic force that continues to unfold and have even deeper meaning. It’s a shame that everyone doesn’t know the beauty of Rozz’ work.

No matter where you are, I hope you are at peace & not suffering…you are a part of me & I will always love you.

  63. LOOKING OUT MY WINDOW

    Last April 1st,I was looking out into my backyard at the robins. The window was open to let in the sweet spring air. I felt a simple joy ,but it was cut off by the knowledge that this was a sad day. Rozz, I yearned with all my will that you were alive and standing with me right there at my window,feeling that re-newing spring promise in the breeze with me. My arm around your shoulder,I would tell you that I wouldn’t let you go no matter what,that you WILL make it through this and someday you’ll look back and be so glad you decided to stay. And we’d hug warmly ,with smiles. I never met you, but I feel a profound sense of sadness for all that can never come to pass….

Having outgrown my “darker years” a while back, I found myself rummaging through old cd’s and immediately found that old familiarity while listening to my favorite Christian Death, Shadow Project & Pre-Ejac tracks…I ran into your site online and was finally able to confirm the rumors I had heard in 98 as I departed from the “scene”. I had the opportunity to see you live in 1995 with Gitane and I must say I will never forget it…my heart goes out to your family and loved ones…not sure what else to say, except that I have great respect for your work…I will end my contribution with my favorite excerpt from your lyrics….

    Why do I always find the greatest artists after they are gone? Rozz, to me only YOU were Christian Death. Your music shall live on in our hearts and on CD long after all your detractors are ash. You brought a Christain Death to a pagan child, and for that I shall forever hold you dear in my heart. You chose your own time to depart from this world, and so you will remain forever young. Perhaps that was your whole plan…? Sleep in peace, wherever you may be, Rozz. A dark angel in eternal repose.

  85. revelations

    Last night my world changed. My chest tightened, tears began to pool, I rose from the chair, gasping as though drowning, throwing out my hands to steady myself as though the world had begun to spin out of control; With great difficulty I began to speak, formulate thought, sort out my feelings as my roomate looked on with concern. It is hard to sum up what Rozz meant to me in life. It is difficult to assure people who know nothing of me that I cannot concieve of my life and art without having known his. Last night I learned that Rozz shares my Birthday. My head reels, my heart pounds; I feel that a thousand dreams and feeligs, a decade of familiarity, smiles, tears and laughter, of fanciful dreams that have suddenly a context so real I never dared aim so near in my own dreams. So many of my questions, my naive heartfelt prayers suddenly seem answered, only now after all these years. All the innumerable fancies of my silly heart, all the love, the closeness and connection I have felt nowhere In life save for in his voice, suddenly have a perspective that is both un-nerving and joyous… You are irrevocably a part of me,
    here in my heart, star of my personal mythology, and perhaps not ironicaly, closer than I ever imagined, speaking to me posthumously, embracing me tighter in Death.

    Rowan Ellis

  86. In a World of False Prophets

    You are a true visionary. No one shall ever surpass you in the realms you have explored. My life was never the same after listening to Dreams for the Dying, an album so close to death. You have been a permanent impact on me ever since, though I never had a chance to see you in person. Whether you are now in heaven or hell, Rozz, rest in peace. No more pain to suffer.

    I’m sorry I didn’t know about Christian Death/Rozz till I was just out of high school. Since then it’s been sheer bliss knowing that someone like him existed. I love his voice and the words ring true it’s haunting to me and for many more. I wish that he gets mass recognition some day for the true artist he was.

    Rozz, Why? did you not see the love we all had/have for you? did you not realize that this was it? You touched a lot of people and you touched me. To go out on April 1st, is not a joke, You were not a joke why then why not never? to leave us in this hell world without your body and soul being, is hard to except. I wish you were here. I miss you. H.

  97. from my heart

    You are truly missed, by so many people. Sometimes I wonder if you had any idea how many people you have touched with your music and art. So many times your music inspired me to keep living in a world that I felt was not built for those like myself. Even though I felt there was a world that did not understand me, somehow I felt a connection to you through your music, and it mad me realize that there were people such as yourself that knows how that feels……I am rambling now. but you are forever in my heart…………..

  98. Alone

    “From Childhood’s hour I have not beenAs others were; I have not seen
    As others saw; I could not bring
    My passions from a common spring.
    From the same source I have not taken
    My sorrow; I could not awaken
    My heart to joy at the same tone;
    And all I lov’d, I lov’d alone…”
    E.Allan Poe
    Poe wrote this poem for himself and people like Roger,so I believe it’s the right thing to say as a prayer to his memory and from this to understand his death and accept his loss…and to realize that he will always be
    …here…

  100. ROZZ

    First hearing the From the Heart album, I was intrigued and gathered cd after cd of various Rozz projects. What a variety! Thank you Rozz for keeping it interesting. I regret I have never spoken with you, but I have been blessed by the pleasure your albums give me..Even though PE sometimes gives me nightmares!

  102. Its always been you.

    Oh Rozz.. what can one say to express their thanks? etched your music forever on my heart.

  103. It's very sad

    Well Rozz has been dead for a long time and its even weird thinking about it today. You listen to a persons music for years and identify with it and then he dies…. or worse kills himself. I felt a great loss when Rozz died even though i didnt really know him but hearing his parents is even harder in a way, i think because you dont only see him as a musician but as a person. I only know i will never forget and always love Rozz’ music.

  112. Tu es dans mon coeurTu es dans mon âme
    comme une blessure
    que l’on ouvre et que l’on ouvre encore de peur qu’elle ne s’éfface…
    Tu es mon point de départ,
    mon seul point d’arrivée
    Tu es dans ma mémoire,
    ancré à tout jamais.
