Pedophile rocker Gary Glitter won’t get ‘Joker’ royalties after all


“Joker” won’t send convicted pedophile Gary Glitter laughing all the way to the bank after all.

The Joaquin Phoenix movie uses Glitter’s 1972 glam rock track “Rock and Roll Part 2” for a pivotal scene, but he won’t see a cent of it – because he had already sold the rights, according to the Los Angeles Times.

“Gary Glitter is unpaid,” a spokesperson for Snapper Music, the London-based label that owns Glitter’s master recordings, told the newspaper. “We have had no contact with him.”

Snapper bought the masters in January 1997 – before he was first jailed in 1999 after child pornography was found on his laptop.

“We don’t promote it at all,” the company says of the pervert’s music, which isn’t sold as physical copies.

In the United States, Glitter’s rights to the writing of “Rock and Roll Part 2″ belong to Universal Music Publishing Group, according to the report.

“UMPG does not pay him any royalties or other consideration,” a spokesperson told the newspaper.

Glitter, real name Paul Gadd, is serving 16 years in a British prison for attacking three girls.

“It is difficult to overstate the depravity of this appalling behavior, Judge Alistair McCreath said during his sentencing in 2015 after Glitter was found guilty of attempted rape, four counts of indecent assault and indecent assault. sex with a girl under 13. .
