Just wanting to let you (know, to) whom it may concern:
That I am, or was, the young man in the movie Four In Hand - (the) opening scene Buff It Up. God, I really disliked the fact that Mr. Bill Scheffler went against my wishes of using just 'Tiger'. Oh well, I was only 19 (at the time), as the movie was actually shot before my 20th birthday in 1982. And if memory serves me, it was shot at Mr. Scheffler's house. I don’t remember the address, but I do remember the shoot itself - like it was yesterday. Not bad considering it was more like 27 years ago!

Hello once again:
The next days shoot went down hill real fast (pun intended) as we were shooting at a house on Laurel or Topanga Canyon Road. Anyway, the road narrows real fast into a bottleneck and as Giorgio (Canali), Mitch (Taylor) and I were in the middle of doing our suck and fuck in the living room, we heard a horrible screeching and (the) crashing of cars - literally right out front of the house! A local cable company van didn’t see a car on its right side and the car went slamming into the cars of several production crew (members, which were) parked in front! To make matters worse the car involved was a young lady with her baby! So here we are, with roaring hard-ons, trying to find our clothes. And the crew are concerned about their cars and Bill wanted them to get all the film equipment put up before the cops arrived. It was a wreak. LOL!
Later, after I had returned to San Francisco, I received a call from Bill - actually asking me if I would come back down to L.A. and shoot one more scene. Plus... he said he would make me the star! That is the scene at the beginning with Brian Hawkes and David Ashfield (billed as Billy Joe Evans). I said 'no'. I had a new lover then (Jerome Strum), who put his foot down and made me choose between him or a porn career. Well I think I made the right choice since my partner (and I) were together for 16 years, until his passing in 1998.
So, there you go a little tale of a short lived porn career! I did go on to do some magazines like Drummer on the prodding of my friend, Chris Burns and Honcho on the request of my then boss and friend, Lou Maletta - when I worked for the Gay Cable Network in the mid 80's.
Well thanks for letting me reminisce a bit!!
Yours with PRIDE, Eric
