COLTON FORD
Porn Career Began: 2001
Music Career Began: 1986
Best Single: cover of “Signed, Sealed, Delivered” with Pepper Mashay
Best Film: All World’s Conquered (2002). Ford and Caesar’s other servants give the roman orgy-style “Royal Treatment” to a conquering gladiator.

In almost every interview he gives, Colton Ford reminds us that he started his music career long before his brief stint in porn. But he made an infinitely better porn star than he does a musician, so one BARELY cares.

Here’s the problem: In porn, he was a versatile salt-and-pepper muscle daddy—instant niche! In music however, his vocoder-heavy covers sound just like every other gay dance tune you keep dancing to in hopes of getting laid.

Thankfully, Ford strips down in almost every one of his music videos. Plus, he gets points for sheer audacity—his soon-to-be-released album of covers (ingeniously titled Under the Covers) includes songs by Fleetwood Mac, Nirvana, and an ultra-gay dance version of R.E.M.’s “Losing My Religion” (featuring Ford looking all angsty and racoon-eyed in a full-body fishnet suit).
