That's spooky. I was just thinking this morning ' What ever happened to Bill Phillips'?

Years ago, I thought 'Muscle Media 2000' was the best thing since sliced bread. It seemed a breath of fresh air after the Weider tripe. Then he took a decision to alter the direction of the mag and go for a more mainstream look.

I went off him after he promoted HMB and CLA as incredible new supplements. I fell for the hype, spent an arm and a leg on them, and got zip out of them.

I jumped ship with TC Luoma, who set up Testosterone (later T-Nation) as 'the old spirit of Muscle Media'. And it sure was, as he did the same super-supplement carpet-bombing. Fell for it again, of course, another bunch of over-priced and entirely useless supplements.

Bill's no doubt got his good points, but he and those from his stable make a speciality for parting fools like me from their money.

I hope that's a toupe, I really do.
