My favourite memory of Eddie is from when we were first shooting together. He’d never been in a porn video and I’d never made one. We were both excited by the adventure. On his first shoot I paid him with a cheque in an envelope with his “porn name” written neatly on the outside. He told me afterwards that he’d held on to the scrappy envelope as a keepsake of his first step in a new chapter. At the time I thought that was rather touching, although looking back and remembering that Eddie had a pretty dry sense of humour, I think he was probably joking at my expense – round that time I was so obsessed with the cult of TIM that I’d have treasured the fluff out of Paul Morris’s belly button given half the chance. Either way, I love the idea of Eddie keeping that envelope and, whether he was kidding or not, it’s certainly true that he got a real kick out of making the videos and being seen by others in his prime, doing something he loved.
Before I made porn I used to pass hot guys in the street and wish very hard that I could follow them wherever they were going and video them having sex. Eddie – you were exactly one of those smoking hot guys, and I’m so glad you let me! Missing you already stud.
