Thanks for a great visit, Davey.

Keep up the GREAT work!

It's hard to believe he has passed from this plane.

He was my first teenage crush ... 
and what a crush!

My god those sparkling teeth...
those lickable lips

those shapely tanned legs

that cute body

"The Partridge Family"

Shirley Jones (his stepmother) 
and David at an AIDS benefit


My favorite song of his:
(Oh that breathy voice....mmmm)

Kelly, Tim, and I met him at his
Las Vegas home in 1999
(Kelly had a crush on him, too, back when)

He signed this Rolling Stone cover spread
that I purchased in my childhood.
It's framed, hanging on my wall.

Signature up close

          At one point David took us to the backyard
to show us around his living quarters.  
When finished, 
we returned to the living room, 
which was on the second level.
We had to climb stairs to get there.
 First in line was Kelly, then David, then me.
David was eyeing Kelly's ass 
and I was eyeing David's ass. 
We were all in heaven!           

After the interview he invited us to 
be his guests at The Sahara that evening,
where he was portraying Bobby Darin
in The Rat Pack is Back
created by Cassidy

Our experience with David in this cover story:

He told us: 
"As I got bigger, my world got smaller . . . "

You'll always be a part of my life, David

This is one of my most adventurous interviews
-- and one of my best

It seems Erik and Tammi are still married today, 
nearly twenty years later.

Had dinner at the Menendez house, 
just a coupe of years after the murders. 
Friends of friends bought the home 
soon after the tragedy 

It was a bit eery . . . but mostly fascinating

What fun!

Thank you Billy Elliott, oops, I mean
Jamie Bell

Be sure and see him and Annette Bening 
in the new flick:

It's about the last years of actress Gloria Grahame,
who made quite an impact in the 40s and 50s, 
starring opposite many top leading men, especially
with Jimmy Stewart in

Shame on you Harvey Weinstein!
You go by way of the priests, who
for years were covered up by
the Catholic Church.


And shame on America's people for allowing this to go on . . .

I support what the NFL players are doing.
Has anyone heard of the First Amendment?!
If you don't like what is going on in America,
you stand up and protest.

America is at the ugliest it has ever been 
in my lifetime and I intend to protest
until this ASS is out of office, and that
includes falling to my knee when the
National Anthem is played at a public event.

This is not my America . . .

My First

We met in the theatre department 
at Ohio State University

I was a "backstage dresser" fulfilling
a class credit on OSU's
production of
Man of La Mancha

"The Nordic god walked into the costume area from offstage, dressed as a Spanish Inquisition guard. Tall, chiseled, and built, I gulped, froze, and blood rushed out of my fingers. The 16th century wig I was molding on to an actor's head, dropped on the linoleum floor. Guarded, my hungry eyes followed him the whole performance, not letting on with my infatuation. Little did I know that night, he would become my first."
