Above is one of my favorite vids of Billy Glide having fun behind the scenes on set of an I Am Eighteen scene with Jessie Parker (then “Mattie Borders”).
We found out today that Billy (43) had passed away in his sleep on Saturday. He started in the industry back in 1995 when he was 24, and has been in adult films ever since.
According to most news sources, Billy died after refusing to seek treatment from a rattlesnake bite. We don’t know for sure, but the snake bite may not have been the only contributing factor to his death.
Alana Evans, a close friend and adult performer heard the news through a friend.
“I’ve known Billy my entire career […] He was part of the reason I got into the business. To hear this kind of news is just so shocking and sad. […] It’s the craziest and saddest way to go, and it could have been prevented.” — Alana Evans, AVN
Our thoughts are with his family and friends.
