The Definitive Johnny Wadd

Chip Rowe summarizes A Life Measured in Inches and provides excerpts from The Playboy Advisor interview in his online column for  The Daily Advisor


“Jennifer Sugar and Jill Nelson are the co-authors of John Holmes: A Life Measured in Inches, the definitive biography of the porn legend who was best known for his extra-large penis.  Sugar and Nelson interviewed 35 people who knew and worked with Holmes, then compiled a lengthy filmography of some of the more than 2,500 loops and movies he is thought to have appeared before his death in 1988 of AIDS-related complications.” ~ Chip Rowe 

The full interview is now available in two parts at you tube as a vignette, in addition to the ‘audio only’ version located at this website found under the “Goodies” header.  To view the you tube version click on: Part One and Part Two.  You may also access the videos via our Inches on You Tube page.
