cognitivedissonance I followed him on Twitter, he was a genuine sweetheart who loved his fans and they loved him. It's a rarity for gay porn stars to die of anything not drug/disease related, and 48 is practically elderly for that scene.
Simillion Yeah, this is sad. Something about his terrible acting and cheesy poses was perfect for the memes that followed and his international appeal was great. He will be missed
dairyqueenlatifah You'd be amazed, cognitivedissonance, to find out how much the age demographics of gay porn have changed in the last couple decades. There are tons of guys older than that (some decades older) doing semi-mainstream gay porn right now.
But yeah, Billy seemed like a genuinely nice guy and this makes me sad. This could have very well been drug or alcohol related though, since he flew over a freeway median strip in perfect weather and slammed head on into a 73 year old man going fast enough to kill himself on impact.
Either way it sucks and I'll miss 'em.
