Do what thou wilt shall be the whole of the Law.

I am interested in connection of William Rozz tith O.T.O. and Thelema. This is a part of the interview with him where he mentioned O.T.O. and Crowley. I will be thankful for more information about this, thank you in advance.

"Manson has made much of his association with The Church of Satan, and Anton La Vey. I know you've practiced various forms of magick in the past--have you ever met up with La Vey?

I went through a period of time, because of my religious upbringing--my parents were Southern Baptist--that's pretty intense. For me, I mean, basically, aside from the fact I wanted to be doing music anyway--I knew at nine years old that's what I wanted to be doing--with this very strict upbringing religiously, I think that's what informed the first Christian Death album: I was going to the other extreme. I had already grown up in this one extreme, and I was like, "I know that this is not right for me, so....
La Vey was always more of a showman to me, which I admire about him. He obviously started out in the circus and never tried to fool people into thinking he was anything more than that. But at the time I was more interested in [Aleister] Crowley, actually practising ceremonies, the O.T.O.

I'm sure you've read Crowley's Diary of a Drug Fiend?

Oh, that's one of my favourite books! Some of his other ones were a little too preachy. An idea can stem from someone else's, but for me you have to make it your own. So even when I was doing that, I wouldn't follow [Crowley's] rituals, I would make up my own. But I started getting so far into that I realized I was digging myself in the same hole that I was trying to get away from, in the opposite direction.
I actually met Anton La Vey's son when I was living in Las Vegas with Eva. I went to church with her, which was an odd thing for me [laughs]. That's where his son was, speaking at this church, he'd become a born-again Christian! It was really interesting to talk to him and get his ideas on the whole thing. "

Love is the law, love under will.

The born-again Christian claiming to be LaVey's son is a patent fraud. LaVey only had one son in the late 1990s, the mother was his biographer Blanche Barton. Whoever fell for that ruse is a fool.

I think you'll find his name is Rozz Williams, no? Big Christian Death fan here! Have no idea if he was ever an OTO member though.

Yes I permutated, due to dealing in the last times too much with Hungarian names (they write surname then first name). Yes, the question was about Rozz Williams, the leader of Christian Death. From time to time I heard rummorsabout connections of some of CD members with the O.T.O. but in only this interview, as far as I know he mentioned this.

Love is the law, love under will.

I'm not aware of Rozz Williams having been in the OTO (also a big fan), but I was recently told by someone on the EC that another EC member, who is now recently deceased, was friends with Rozz. I realize this is hearsay, as I'm just some guy online telling you about someone who knew someone in the OTO who was friends with Rozz. . .but take it as you will.

93 All,

I knew Rozz for more than 12 years and I lived with Brother P. who indeed knew Rozz very well.

Rozz had a cursory interest in the OTO but was never a member. He actually used to make fun of us when he would come over. I remember him standing in our living room with a leather apron on (nothing else) and holding a feather duster saying, "Hail to the East, Hail to the West.'

There it is.

93's
