As he appears in the text:

“Joe Dallesandro was one of the only Warhol superstars to find a viable career as an actor after his time in the Factory. Joe was only nineteen and supporting himself as a nude model when he met Andy in 1967. Andy began to cast him as the love interest in all his films. Joe is mentioned in the Lou Reed song ‘Walk on the Wild Side,’ and featured—in a still from Flesh—on The Smiths’s self-titled album.”
