THE 2003 WALL OF FAME

 

 

Signing in on this year's "Wall of Fame" were:

Joe Gage: An adult gay erotic film pioneer from pre-video days. Gage's famous Kansas City Trucking Co. (1976), El Paso Wrecking Corp. (1977) and L.A. Tool & Die (1979) have become best selling classics. Gage's return to the industry started with Tulsa Country Line (Men of Odyssey 2001) and last year directed the award winning remake of his 1980 classic Closed Set with his MSR release Closed Set: The New Crew.

John Rutherford: Multi-award winning Falcon Studios director that recently resigned as the head of Falcon. Rutherford started his adult video career under Falcon founder, the late Chuck Homes and was name head of the studios many divisions following Homes death. Since his first award winning blockbuster Flashpoint (1994) Rutherford has continued his award winning string with hit after hit.

J.D. Slater: Co-founder and owner of Raging Stallion Studios with Chris Ward, Slater started in the industry in the early '80s as a performer and appeared in dozens of videos on into the '90s. A talented composer and musician, Slater has also become a major composer and has scored musical backgrounds for all the major video companies.

Jason Branch: Over the last half dozen years Branch has appeared in over 60 videos. One of the industry's most masculine, sensual and versatile performers Branch is equally as appealing in hardcore fetish videos as he is in taking on dramatic or more vanilla roles and has become a multi-award winning performer.

Michael Brandon: Although dating back to 1989 when he first appeared in video Brandon appeared in a little more than a handful of videos until the late '90s. Since the turn of the century Brandon shot to an award winning status and now with over 100 plus videos behind him is the co-owner with Raging Stallion Studios of his own line of Monster Bang Videos where he is still the star of the show.

Jack Simmons: Starting his career as Buck Stradlin in the early '90s he quickly change his name and has become one of the industry's most popular African-American performers in his over 60+ video career. His trademark smile and smooth personality adds to his sexual abilities as a standout performer on and off the screen.
