I'd really like to meet Dave Draper: such an interesting, human, complex, self-effacing guy. It's good to see that he survived those troubled times.

Weider may have done a lot for bodybuilding, but he was also a ruthless b*stard. Cast those guys aside like used tissue paper the second he couldn't make any more money out of them.

I remember an interview with Arnold where he said that other bodybuilders often didn't understand Weider and mistook 'looking after his product' for friendship. Arnold was always savvy enough to see through that.
