The poor fellow had major issues with alcohol abuse, but in the 70's and 80's his star was flying high. Most people remember him for that action TV show, "Airwolf" with Ernest Borgnine, but I remember him for his great number of "B" movies in the 70's, such as the immortal classic (!?!), DAMNATION ALLEY!!!

Not a great movie...but my boys watched Jan-Michael Vincent repeatedly in Disney's The World's Greatest Athlete (1973).

Who remembers the “danger island” series which was part of the banana splits tv show in the late 60s, must have been one of his first apperances.
