Somewhat Lacking...[edit]

This article gives very little information regarding PIG, and Rozz's love of Dada/Surrealist art. I've added a picture to give people a basic idea of what he looked like (or at least, what he looked like whilst in-character). 04:35, 27 Apr 2005 (UTC)

I used to find it on YouTube and now its removed. :(

Does anyone know if Rozz Williams had a drivers license or even actually knew how to drive? I've been talking with someone at the DMV who says there are no records that Rozz ever had a license, but can't give me any solid proof due to legal issues. Rozz2 07:22, 7 April 2006 (UTC)

Response from Todd Dixon... I can't say whether Rozz had a license or not, but I can say that he didn't drive and chose to have others drive him places.

Response from Casey Strain Rozz was driving in beginning of the movie PIG. But that doesn't explain if he ever had a license or not. I might be able to verify this from Ryan Wildstar.

2nd response from Casey Strain Rozz always had people drive for him. He has a state ID, but no driver's licence. Michelle Russo is also known as Christina Death 1334 of Chicago. She has interviewed Rozz three times. They chatted each time Rozz came to Chicago. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Velheim (talkcontribs) 16:31, 13 October 2008 (UTC)

WeHo apartment[edit]

Where in West Hollywood was Rozz's apartment? I've been told it was in between Santa Monica/Melrose and Fairfax/LaBrea but thats still a pretty big chunk so it'd be cool to get something more precise. RozzFan (talk) 12:44, 3 March 2009 (UTC)

Response from Casey Strain: You can find the directions to his old apartment on a Rozz Williams fansite hosted by freewebs.


This currently shows in the article: "===Death=== On 1 April 1998, Rozz was found by Ryan Wildstar, his roommate of 7 years, hanged to death in their West Hollywood apartment. He was 34. A memorial was held at the El Rey Theatre shortly after his death, and a small gathering of family and friends offered his ashes to the earth at Runyon Canyon Park in the Hollywood Hills."

I'd like to add the following, but would like the other editors to look at it first. Since my info seems to conflict with the above info. Were there two sets of ashes?

And no I'm not promoting the flower shop :-) but they speak better English than the grounds keepers, so visitors may find them helpful.

My suggested addition:

"Rozz's remains are interred at the Hollywood Forever Mortuary. It is common for many people to make a pilgrimage there on April 1st, and the flower shop knows of him well enough to offer directions to visitors. Rozz also appears (as Roger Warner) in the booklet listing celebrities that is sold in the flower shop." Roger Midnight (talk) 23:06, 17 March 2009 (UTC)

Response from Casey Strain: Few know the answer to that question. For starters, Ryan wasn't the only person who found Rozz that day. Another thing to add is that the jar in Hollywood Forever is empty. Rozz's ashes are not there.

Stephen Messer: I was at the invitation-only ceremony, during which his father spread his ashes at Runyon Canyon. There was, to my knowledge, no other set of ashes, though one person did scrape up a very small amount ashes from the leaves of plants after the family had left. I don't know who that person was.
