In fairness to Karl Roy, he photographed really well.

We met in the late ’90s. I had a little clothing store called Grocery and we used to dress up the likes of Karl Roy, Francis Magalona, Giselle Tongi. They were fun times and they went so fast.
Karl was the partner of one of our friends, Yvette, who is mother of his daughter, Ariana.
I always thought Karl was a gentle soul camouflaged behind the tattoos and piercings.

In May 2008, Rogue magazine interviewed Karl Roy after recovering from a stroke in September 2007.
The full article is here and an accompanying video is here:

Pinoy rock legend Karl Roy dies at 43
BY MARJ CASAL, GMA NEWS March 13, 2012 10:48am

Pinoy rock icon Karl Roy, 43, died due to cardiac arrest Tuesday morning. His death was announced by his sister Kathryn Roy on her Facebook page.
“It is with deepest sadness that I share the news of Karl’s passing. He was called Home today at 1:01 a.m. Manila time (Tuesday, March 13th), surrounded by those who loved him most—mommy, Keith, Kevin, Krys, his daughter Ariana, and our cousin Jack (Roy-Duavit),” Kathryn wrote.
Please continue to pray for Karl. He brought so much joy to others but, unfortunately, did not have enough of it in this life. He’s in a better place now, with Lolo Pepe, Lola Conching and Daddy,” she added.
Karl Roy was the vocalist of three of the most famous Pinoy rock bands, P.O.T., Kapatid, and Advent Call.
Hours after his death, Karl Roy became the top trending topic on Twitter Philippines.
Fans turned to social media to express grief over his death.

Thank you for sharing this video, however, just to clear any confusion, this video was produced by Pelicola.Tv and has nothing to do with Splintr Productions.  Here is the link to the video with the correct information.  Thank you.
