Fan favorite adult industry veteran performer Billy Glide, whose real name was Tad Nolen, passed away in his sleep on Saturday night (May 24). He was 43.
Initially, it was reported that Glide had died of a rattlesnake bite (for which he refused to get medical treatment). But, others are now reporting that he died of a possible drug overdose.
Alana Evans (adult industry star and friend): "I was just letting people know the story that was told to me about his death, and now I hear that the story might not be true. Regardless of how he died, he is still gone, and it is still sad news."
A resident of Huntington Beach, CA, Billy Glide began performing in 1995 and has remained one of the most consistent male performers in the adult industry.
May he rest in peace...
