Today ilovedinomartin takes you to the very very evocative blog, "Boomer Beefcake and Bonding" where blogger Jeffery P. Dennis has created photo/prose essay on our great man's great son. Dennis shares thoughts on Dino Jr. that likes I have never ever heard before, and thus this is a rather provocative post to say the least. Willa be very intrigued to hear all youse pallies responses to Jeffery's focus.
To read this Dino-material in it's original format, just clicks on the tag of this here Dino-report. Keeps lovin' our most beloved Dino! Dino-awed, DMP
Dean Paul Martin
After his group disbanded, Dino played professional tennis and semi-pro football; he got his pilot's license; he studied medicine and joined the National Guard. He started calling himself Dean Paul instead of Dino. He changed into a blond. He developed a spectacular physique.
Dean was married to women twice, briefly, but rumor has it that he enjoyed the company of men and women both. He appeared in a 1979 issue of After Dark, the interview-and-revealing photo magazine aimed primarily at an audience of gay men.
Dean's least heterosexist role was in Misfits of Science (1985-88), part of the mid-1980s fad for science fiction comedies (others included Automan, Max Headroom, and The Greatest American Hero). He played Dr. Billy Hayes, a young scientist who travels around in an ice cream truck with a group of mutants with weird powers. 15 episodes appeared during the 1985-85 season, and another in 1988. A lot of homoerotic buddy-bonding (notice the number of people who can't keep their hands to themselves in this photo), and not a lot of heterosexual machinations.
He died in 1987 when the small plane he was flying crashed.
