Book Overview
A pocket sized illustrated poetry book based on the life of Rozz Williams, a pioneer of Deathrock. Rozz Williams was born Roger Alan Painter in Glendora, California on November 6, 1963. He took his name from a gravestone in a Pomona cemetery. His first breakthrough came in 1979 with the band Christian Death, a play on the brand Christian Dior. In 1981, he collaborated with performance artist Ron Athey to produce the beginnings of Industrial noise in a project called Premature Ejaculation. Always an innovator, Rozz Williams changed the depth of music and art while inspiring subsequent generations of artists.
