I thought synthol was relatively new?

As crazy as it is to believe, that picture is new, or at least not very old.  It was taken at the 2006 Australia Pro, mere months before Vince turned 50:

In my opinion, Vince Taylor needs to get a bigger ego. He's still looking for approval, even now when most BBing fans DO consider him a legend. The thing I always liked about Rich Gaspari was that he never acted like he wanted your respect, he just went out and got it regardless of what you thought about him. Even in the mid 90s/early 00s when Gaspari's name had faded quite a bit he never bitched about anything, just kept working on his business. Then BOOM, Gaspari Nutrition is a household name in the supplement game, and Rich is baller again.

Vince likes to play the role of the victim, and when you play that role too long people begin to see you as one.

C'mon man, when you act like a champ people talk about you like a champ. All victims get is pity.

totally agree. Taylor is a hall of fame calibre bodybuilder. props to Dan and the team to getting to 200 episodes.

you could ask 100 BBing fans who the top 10 bodybuilders of all time were.  Chances are, Taylor wouldn't be on many of their lists.  Guys with far fewer wins - Levrone, Ray, Gaspari, Labrada, Wheeler - would probably be before him on the list.  (Not even counting the O winners)

The guy has the 3rd most wins of all time... yet these other guys (levrone, ray, wheeler, cormier) are almost always mentioned first - and they're from the same era.

They are mentioned first because they all were better.  Most of Vince's wins appear to have come from Grand Prix shows.  Only 7 wins at the shows in the states that are more competitive.  (I'm not counting the Masters stuff, cuz the competition isn't the same)  Out of those, only 4 wins would be considered to be wins at the "high caliber" shows.  2 Ironman's, The Arnold, and N.O.C.

Again, great bodybuilder but he got all the attention he deserved and then some.  Having so many wins doesn't mean he was better than those guys, he just competed more and at places he knew he could win.  The other guys mostly went for the big shows with higher quality competition.  I will say though, that he deserves extra props for being able to compete so many damn times though.  Damn! Cool

vince is noted for having some of the best old school calves before this oil BS...so wtf yall talking about?  vince came up orange cty with melvin (underachiever) and shawn (cover boy) via john brown.  he has a lot of wins (mostly 10k shows like cormier and charles) but shawn worked to get his face on the covers...so he is the guy who will be remembered even 10 yrs from now.  john brown always said shawn was the best of the pack, shawn's muscles responded to weights and gear the best.  i think john's guys are about ole school lifting.  it's too bad john brown didnt get flex via the shawn connection...so he may have reached his potential and been a 2-3 MrO because he was right there to beat Ronnie.

Rich Gaspari couldn't carry Vince Taylor's jock strap......Gaspari is, was, and always will be a prima donna.....I spent 5 days with Rich at his home in Jersey......he bad mouthed many champs and he felt he was going to make this big comeback......that being said.....he did have great calves, traps, back detail and conditioning.....but the guy was not pleasing to the eye....he also contradicted himself regarding training...he always preached form over poundage....and then the guy picks up 80s for laterals and swings them up...no control whatsoever....he was unreal as far as vascularity and conditioning....but he was no Vince Taylor or Bob Paris.

Maybe, but he's not the one who's begging for sponsorships, b/c he's the one handing'em out.

Shawn Ray or Kevrone probably could have had more wins, but they didn't spend every year on the pro circuit like Vince, nor did they compete as old as he did.

IMO, if you put peak Levrone and Ray and Wheeler in the lineup with Vince Taylor, he'd be 4th. He's one of the greats, hall of fame caliber no doubt, but he has more wins just because he did more shows.

thats great, what year was it?
you know, these guys are all human, just like you and me, not perfect, sure, they're pros and you'd expect them to act professional, but they're people with opinions...and he is from Jersey...
Gaspari must've been a sight to behold in person back in the day!

I always liked Vince's physique very much, very proportional and aesthetic.

Probably lacked that little freak factor that is needed to be a reoccuring topic on bb-boards much like Haney.

In the PBW sticky thread 240 called him the most underrated pro ever, and I disagreed.  My argument being...



"Quote from: 240 is Back on August 16, 2010, 04:51:58 PM
The guy has the 3rd most wins of all time... yet these other guys (levrone, ray, wheeler, cormier) are almost always mentioned first - and they're from the same era."
