R.I.P. JOSH WESTON (1973-2012)
Former Falcon Exclusive Josh Weston has died, The Sword reports.
The strawberry blond star of Heaven to Hell, Quarterback Sack and Fleet Week passed away earlier this week due to a heart attack related to HIV. Weston caused a stir in early 2008 when he began shooting bareback videos. Later, he was brought back to Falcon Studios for the equally controversial (at the time) Fleet Week.
In an 2006 interview with Lavender Lounge, Weston dismissed notions we should pity the porn star.
As for difficulty in being in porn, I’m always surprised that many people think that if you do porn its because you had no other options in life, last refuge of the scoundrel. I could have been anything in the world I wanted to be, and Im doing exactly what I want. People are also often taken back by porn stars that think, are intelligent, I guess they don’t expect it. Just because I get double fucked on camera doesnt mean I cant conjugate a verb.
Weston may have had demons, but for him, porn wasn’t one of them. Still, Weston’s death concludes a particularly sad year for the industry, after the loses of Roman Ragazzi, Erik Rhodes, Tanner Hayes and Adam Faust.
