R.I.P Ed.

Probably about 10 years ago at the Arnold I saw Ed at a booth. He was in a wheel chair and looked in rough shape then.

Anyhow there was no line to meet him and I went up to introduce myself and say hello. I told him because of pumping iron I always think he is the greatest poser ever and he looked at me and said "Im sure it's easy to be cocky when you're young, I was probably arrogant when I was young too".   I think he thought I said I was the best poser, or something along those lines, so I just awkwardly stared at him and said it was a privilege to meet him.

Big fan of Nick and his videos. Odd though that he would be the one contacted regarding Ed Corney's death. Corney was from Hawaii and had a big following here back in the day.

What was more fascinating to me was not that Corney loves Corvettes but that Nick owns two and plans on getting a third brand new one. The guy is 26 years old and comes across as just an average working guy. Must be getting some decent YouTube ching.

From Lonnie Teper

Sadly, the new year brought with it some depressing news...legend Ed Corney, called the greatest poser of all time by former IRON MAN Magazine Publisher John Balik, passed away this morning at 85. Sources have told me Corney suffered a brain aneurism late Christmas evening and hung on for another week before he couldn't fight any longer.
Corney, one of the icons of the Golden Age of Bodybuilding, had a great physique but the conversation always turned to his posing talents whenever his name came up.
"Ed spoke to the audience like no other bodybuilder in my 50+ years of experience," Balik said Monday night after hearing the news. "His charismatic presence electrified his audience. Ed projected love and everyone loved him back. RIP my friend!"

Corney appeared on the covered of the book "Pumping Iron" and on the posters for the movie, which enhanced his popularity even more. I remember getting a phone call from a close friend of Ed's in 1999, I think it was, letting me know Ed had suffered a heart attack undergoing shoulder surgery, leading to two strokes (due to medication given to him for the heart attack)and time in a coma. But that wasn't enough to keep this fella down for long. Every time I would see him at an event, he had that famous Corney smile, greeting his legions of fans and nary a word of sorrow about his unfortunate health issues.

Corney won titles at the IFBB MR. America, the IFBB Universe and the Masters Olympia 60+ on two occasions en route to the Bodybuilding Hall of Fame. I will always remember how courteous Ed was every time we would run into each other, complimenting me on my writing and emceeing, when he was the one deserving of all the accolades. Here I am, in the presence of one of the games greatest players, and he's making me feel special. Special is a good word to describe Ed Corney, on and off a bodybuilding stage. Gone, but never, ever forgotten. Thank you for all that you did for the world of bodybuilding. Here are a couple of Balik photos showing the Master doing what he did best.

RIP, my man!

I was fortunate to meet Mr Corney a couple of times and he seemed like a good dude.

RIP

I saw him in Manhattan when the movie Pumping Iron came out. They showed the movie then he came out and posed. He wasn't a young man at the height of his popularity yet he held his own against guys 20 years younger.

Probably about 10 years ago at the Arnold I saw Ed at a booth. He was in a shell chair and looked in rough shape then.

Anyhow there was no line to meet him and I went up to introduce myself and say hello.

No Ed was real nicen unless you meant me, lol. He complimented me on my arms, asked me to flex, I've got a decent build, especially at that time, but i'm a natty so its  not like i'm a stand out amongst the freaks at an expo.

He was being nice and when I hit the bicep pose that's when I told him the pumping iron comment.

Its shocking to think he was already 40 back when he was in pumping iron. Great physique, poser and dude.
