Quotes from the news wire:
He was a fun-loving guy, when he was at home, we had fun. He and I co-created a baseball league in our pool… I would be the LA Dodgers. He would be the New York Yankees. We had a schedule, we had a world series. We did home movies. He did a movie and I [played] an FBI agent. My cousins where in it, my dad was in it… This project took months to get together and it was about eight minutes long. But those were the kinds of things we did. We just had a great time.
My parents were the first parents on my block to get a divorce, [People] would look at us like, ‘Oh, those show business people.’ All my friends, their parents were dentists, attorneys and salespeople. And I’m part of the carny crowd. The showbiz people… It was embarrassing to deal with that. So I retreated during my senior year of high school.
I think what Hollywood did, it’s that it offered up beautiful women coming by the set of ‘Hogan’s’ or meeting him at parties, that’s what Hollywood offered. An endless array of gorgeous women that my dad couldn’t say no to. You can meet beautiful women anywhere, but in the film and TV business, it’s at the forefront.
I was aware that he loved women and that he probably should not have been married, he probably should have been a single guy because he was not the most faithful companion in the world. I was aware of that. I was aware of his love of photography… When home video came out in the mid-60s, he had to have one of the first units. I was aware of him taping women with their consent… It was always consensual. There was nothing hidden. There were no drugs. Both people wanted to be there.
I guess his motive might have been a rejection finally of their friendship or whatever you want to call it by my dad, my dad wanted to make some changes. He was getting divorced. He was trying to clean up his act. And maybe Carpenter couldn’t handle that… He got my dad involved in these swing parties back then… I can’t say my dad wouldn’t have done that on his own somehow, but Carpenter knew the avenues to travel and took my dad along on some of these adventures.
I remember when I was a kid during summer vacation, I would go with him down to the station where he would do his radio show [before ‘Hogan’s], no chauffeurs, no assistants, no handlers. He drove 80 miles an hour to get there by six and be on the air live. Not one cup of coffee. No drugs. Just pure adrenaline and pure love of entertaining people. He craved it… [But he later] made some bad choices, some bad decisions… And he missed out on so much over these bad choices he made with people. It’s such a waste.
