Desperately Seeking Susan : Taxi Driver

Taxi Driver

played by Rockets Redglare who is a leading suspect in Nancy Spungen's murder.
I guess he either claimed it to get attention or did it??
Weird IMO that he was an extra in so many movies and an admitted dealer.

Re: Taxi Driver

Yes, Rockets Redglare is a suspect in Nancy's death, but it has never been substantiated. Probably never will be. Yes, he was a small-time dealer, but so were a lot of scenesters at the time. Rockets Redglare is sometimes credited as a "bodyguard" for the Sex Pistols, but he was more of a hangaround/male groupie. He died of hepatitis or something about 15 years ago.
