Bill Brennan (May 15, 1965 - May 19, 2022) was an American Rocky Horror Elder. Bill was one of the oldest fans in the scene, and was also, at one time, one of the youngest. Bill first went to Rocky Horror on his 15th birthday in 1980, and joined the Linden, NJ cast the very next night. The week after that he attended his first showing of The Rocky Horror Picture Show at New York's 8th Street Playhouse and joined that cast as well. As the years went by, Bill wandered from part to part: in his younger, thinner years he was a Riff Raff, and as time went on, he gravitated towards Eddie and Criminologist. His "second love" is Shock Treatment, and he loves playing Bert Schnick most of all.
Bill retired from NYC RHPS as a full time member in May of 2000, completing a 20 year non-stop run as a devoted performer, but continued to guest perform now and then in NYC and attended the RHPS conventions when he could... and was a devoted fan, in his heart, to Rocky Horror until the day he died.
Bill passed away on May 19, 2022.
