Rick Rozz (born Frederick D. DeLillo; January 9, 1966)[citation needed] is an American guitarist. He grew up in Brooklyn, New York and spent his formative years in Altamonte Springs, Florida, attending Lake Brantley High School. He is best known for his work with the death metal bands Death[1] and Massacre.[2] He still resides in Florida.

He played on and co-wrote the well-known death-metal releases Leprosy in 1988, From Beyond in 1990, the EP Inhuman Condition in 1991 and the more rock-oriented LP Promise in 1996. He also worked on the 2013 Massacre release of "Back From Beyond" on Century Media Records.

Rozz currently plays guitar for a death-metal band named THE END which Rozz and ex-Massacre drummer Mike Mazzonetto formed in 2014. They teamed up with vocalist/bassist Michael Grim to complete the trio.
