Gary Taylor just underwent the fourth operation on his knee, and is in very good spirits following the surgery. This was yet another attempt to repair the damage sustained when a 450-kg tire he was flipping fell back on him, pinning him to the ground (see MILO, Volume 5 - Number 2). In this most recent operation, a donor's Achilles tendon was used, spawning more good-natured comparisons with Frankenstein. Taylor, a veteran of weightlifting, bodybuilding, powerlifting and strongman competitions (see MILO, Volume 3 - Number 2), has sustained his share of injuries over the years, and by his own count, has had 560 stitches.
