Sorry to again bring you the news of another great loss in the bodybuilding world, but it's being reported that Joe Weider has passed away today at the age of 93. Not many reports on this yet, but his Wiki page has been updated to reflect his passing.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Joe_Weider

Bodybuilding absolutely would not be what it is today without him and Ben Weider.

Rest in Peace Joe.
