Here is Raging Stallion/Falcon Studios’ statement:

It is with great sadness that San Francisco-based Falcon Studios and Raging Stallion Studios has confirmed the passing of Porn Superstar, Erik Rhodes. Erik died of a heart attack in his sleep this morning at 5:30 AM EDT. Rhodes had been a Falcon Exclusive for all but one scene in his entire career, and he rose quickly to Mega-Star status after his first DVD Super Soaked was released in 2004.

Chris Ward, Falcon/Raging Stallion Studios President offered the following statement: “We are deeply saddened by Erik’s passing. He was a part of our family and we are devastated. Our thoughts are with his loved ones.”

We offer our condolences to Erik’s family, friends and loved ones. He was a genuine and caring man with extraordinary attractiveness and a massive muscled frame. Erik was an equally beautiful human being who lit up a room, and brought fun and joy to our studio and his fans that was unparalleled. He was a giving person with a special wit, and he put his all into every performance.  He wanted to give his fans the best he could every single time he stepped in front of the camera.  Rest in peace, Erik and know that we are celebrating your life and your achievements, but we will miss you and all the special moments you have given us forever.

Born in Long Island, New York in 1982, Erik recently celebrated his 30th birthday. Rhodes began his career with Falcon by signing as an Exclusive in September of 2004 at the age of 22, shooting only one scene prior to joining the Falcon team, and he had remained an exclusive ever since.  Erik also directed eight Mustang Studios titles during his career.  He recently began shooting with Raging Stallion Studios after it merged with Falcon in early 2011.  His videography includes over 40 scenes filmed over the last 8 years.

Falcon has created a special Celebrating Erik Rhodes page on the Falcon Blog where fans can leave messages for Erik and his loved ones. ( http://blog.falconstudios.com/?p=4360 )
