Iron Cinema: Longtime friend Ric Drasin reflects on Rich Piana’s death.
IRON CINEMA – Every Monday we connect you with Generation Iron director Vlad Yudin. Get a first hand look at the entire journey of the bodybuilding industry – ranging from athlete interviews, behind-the-scene looks at major events, and insight into the Generation Iron Fitness Network‘s original shows and films.
A lot of us in the Generation Iron offices are still reeling from the passing of Rich Piana – especially as many have met him personally in the process of filming Generation Iron 2. I decided to reach out to Ric Drasin, who was a well known long time friend to Rich Piana, to get more context and insight into Rich’s passing.
Ric Drasin has been releasing honest, entertaining, and informative videos on YouTube for quite some time… so I knew that he would be able to have a frank and reflective conversation with me about Rich Piana’s life leading up to his tragic death. We touch upon the rumors of drug use, his past heath issues, and the kind of life Rich always pushed to live even up to the very last few days. You can watch our full interview above.
