The police officer, who also appeared as a Navy Commander for the In The Navy video, was the only member of the Village People who was openly straight. Victor Willis was the lead singer but left the band in 1984. He had a revival in 2007 with his Victor Willis Dance Tour, and his autobiography, probably titled Just A Gigilo, is due out this year.
The last Village People album, named Sex Over The Phone after their final single, was recorded with a replacement frontman. Attempting to fill the heterosexual void created when Victor Willis left, the band hired sexually-charged women for its music video, and sometimes pretended to call them for phone sex.
