DENNIS POSA
10|28|1946 - 1|28|1985

Before releasing his first and only excellent disco album - DENNIS PARKER was best known for his career in adult films (under the name WADE NICHOLS). He appeared in quite a few of them, But not always acknowledged as part of the cast. Most of the films were straight in nature although he also appeared in the gay release BOY-NAPPED.

Just as he was really making a name for himself - after releasing his album and appearing on the TV soap opera THE EDGE OF NIGHT [as Police Chief Derek Mallory],  his life ended too soon [at the age of 38] - due to complications from Aids.

MANY THANKS TO THE INVALUABLE ASSISTANCE OF THE RIALTO REPORT AND MY FRIEND JOHN KULP!
