But a big drawdown really does call into question the rest of someone's record. That's because it means those risks were being incurred all along, so the returns gained must be seen in light of that risk.

Yes but they didn`t use leverage as far i know and when you compound at 27% for a decade and than have a 50% or 60% drawdown its not the end of the world. Especially when you look at the story, i mean he has only played with internet stocks in late 1999 because there was immense pressure from his investors, i doubt that he would have done it when he was a private investor at that time. Just shows how dangerous it can be to invest OPM.

Druckenmiller is a good investor.  Though,  I do doubt his "market timing" ability.
