Michael Brandon’s monster meth habit

SF Weekly is running a five-page feature about Michael Brandon‘s current drug-related legal problems…

We cannot display this gallery When the careworn, emaciated man in the powder-blue long-sleeved button-down shirt drifted in through the courtroom doors, not many took note. For all anyone knew, he was just another junkie who had stolen or trespassed or sold drugs or gotten ratted out by some other junkie.

Aside from a reporter, nobody seemed to suspect this man might be a beloved San Franciscan gay porn icon with a 10-inch cock nicknamed Monster and a line of dildos created in its likeness. This guy now looked like a withered character in a Tim Burton film, nothing like the wiry blond stud who twice took home the highest honor in gay porn, the GAYVN Performer of the Year. It was conceivable that this wasn’t the man at all.

He settled in the second-to-last row of the courtroom, took a long, slow breath, and gazed at the floor.

The reporter approached. “Are you Michael Brandon?”

The man’s distressed blue eyes flicked up and he nodded. — (full story)

The longtime fan favorite spent most of the ’90s battling an addiction to crystal meth. He even served more than three years in prison after two separate drug convictions.

Brandon had dabbled in porn since 1989, but shot to super-stardom ten years later after teaming up with Chris Ward at Raging Stallion Studios. Ironically, Brandon kicked the habit, and his porn popularity turned him into an influential anti-drug posterboy for the San Francisco Department of Health’s Stonewall Project.

His personal life and lucrative porn career are now in limbo thanks to his messy relapse.

    I went to visit Michael Brandon at Rehab yesterday. He is doing much better; however, It was so sad to hear him talk about how his partners at the studio have been treating him since he fell back into his addiction this past December. Some of the stuff I am not suppose to comment; but I would not trat my worst enemy they way Chris Ward and Kent Taylor have treated Michael; and on top of that they brag about themsleves helping him to get publicity for the studio.

    With tears in his eyes Michael said “I’ve always seen them do things like that to other people; but I never thought they will treat me like that… I made that studio; and I thought I was a friend”. He tried to stop several times shortly after his relapse, but the thought of having to go into Raging Stallion and seeing Chris Ward and Kent Taylor again after how they treated him made him fall back into his addiction.

    I can’t wait for him to be out of rehab, so he can finally let everyone in the adult industry and their fans/customers how he was backstaved and destroyed by his partners at Raging Stallion Studios.
