Dennis Parker — Like an Eagle
from Like an Eagle (1979)
Wow.. amazing music video for ‘Like an Eagle,’ a 1979 disco track.. taped from French television. Great shots of the seedy 70s Times Square, and Dennis Parker is strutting around NYC like a crazy person—just the way you should with a disco track like this.
Dennis Parker aka Wade Nichols started his career as a porno actor, starring in flicks like Boynapped! and Bang Bang You Got It, before being noticed by disco producer Jacques Morali (the man behind the Village People). Morali convinced Parker to record a disco album and this track is one of the hits that resulted from the collaboration.
In the meantime, Parker continued his work in the x-rated business, and took a gig as police chief in the soap opera Edge of Night, but he was forced to quit in 1984 as his health deteriorated due to AIDS. He committed suicide the year after.
