    A Legend Has Passed

    Some of you may know of DAVE DRAPER. I heard from his wife yesterday that Dave had died.

    Dave was one of the Weider superstars back in the 60's. He won the Mr.Universe and was one of the best in the world. At 6'2" 225 pounds he was a GIANT compared to most of the bodybuilders of the day. Then along came Sergio and Arnold and Dave dropped form the scene. No way was he going to beat them. He went as far as he could go as a pro.

    He used his good looks to get into movies but the death of his friend Sharron Tate at the hands of the Charle's Manson cult had a profound effect on him. Dave gave up training and started up drinking.

    Then he met his amazing wife Laree, he cleaned up and in his 50's started training again. Below is a picture of him at 25 and another one him at age 60. He lived the true bodybuilding lifestyle.

    Dave remained active until he was 76, when he became debilitated, and finally succumbed to illness at age 79.

    And for the record, though I imagine most won't believe it, Dave was natural except for pre-contest where he did some Winstrol. That's it. Of course, some will say that's a lie but I knew Dave and there wasn't a more honest and sincere guy you'd ever meet. He was also super smart -- the complete anthesis of the lunk head bodybuilder. Educated, meek, articulate and a gentleman. A sweet man and a great guy. I don't think he had any reason to lie or have anything to hide.

    The bodybuilding world could use more men like him. Maybe the bodybuilding world doesn't want it. But he was an inspiration to a generation. And powerful proof of the power of bodybuilding.

    A part of Iron Game history gone. I'm fortunate enough to have a signed copy of his Brother Iron, Sister Steel book (plus a letter from his wife). It was sent for review when I published Muscle Mob magazine
