West Coast Bodybuilding Scene is a trip through the most unforgettable years of bodybuilding following its humble beginning on the sands of Muscle Beach. The handful of restless musclemen lifting weights with enthuslasm and love catapulted the singular sport of biceps, muscle and might into the lives of admirers across the globe. The sport became a culture and these characters of amazing form and fortitude became its golden heroes. Author Dick Tyler chronicled the innocent years when a thing of beauty unaware of itself matured. The material set forth on these pages once appeared as beloved gossip columns and features in Joe Welder's Mr. America and Muscle Builder magazines throughout the Colden Era, 1965-1971. Packed with photos adorned with commentary captions by the Blond Bomber, Dave Draper, hardcore bodybuilding fans and new fitness enthusiasts alike will be inspired by this sweet look at iron and steel history.
