Included almost as an afterthought in this interesting New York piece on last Sunday's Jamie Gillis memorial at Zarela is the news that he did in fact finish his memoirs before succumbing to cancer. That's a silver lining on this dark cloud, to be sure.
Also included is Gillis' own rather remarkable tribute to his alter ego/nom de cine:
“Jamie Gillis will always be the bad boy of porn, the lover of life — eager to taste everything, in a way, even immortally so. I salute him because I honestly feel he represents something wonderfully outrageous and exuberant. Hats off to you, sir.”
