Some more muscle to name

Postby Harry Hayfield » Mon Feb 27, 2017 8:24 pm


This is a video I have created following a programme yesterday on the "NOW" music channel, which is currently celebrating the 1980's, of pop videos from that decade where there was a fair bit of muscle on show. My question is "Can anyone identify any of the bodybuilders?". I have slowed down / muted the sound, so that it cannot be blocked and that people can be easily identified with the video that the segment appears from listed to help with sourcing an answer.

Many of the guys in those videos look less like bodybuilders and more like fitness models or something. In any case, there's a couple of them I know of.... the bodybuilder in the Adam Ant "Friend or Foe" video is Andrew Searle (,+Andrew), a notable British bodybuilder from the 80s. One of the bodybuilders in the Diana Ross video is Gil Birmingham, shown at 0:46 of your video, who's made a career of acting (
