I'll be interviewing these guys @ NAMM - so I watched the movie 'Anvil! The Story of Anvil' and all I can say is WOW.  If you haven't seen it - I strongly recommend it.  These guys are committed like no other.  Worth the 1.5 hours!  Fantastic rock n roll 'reality' movie!  Must see!!

I watched this a while back.  It is AWESOME, and inspiring. A little sad to say the least at first.  "That's dedication pal."

Sad indeed. But, what a reality check on music (musicians to be exact)!  Even some of these 'reunion bands'.  I think many of them are brought back from the dead by promoters interested in making a buck ... but to Anvil's credit - they stayed relevant because they endured.  After watching the movie - I have a tremendous amount of respect for Anvil!

It's definitely a story of persistence, dedication, and most importantly a love of "metal".  Two life long friends make a pact at 14 ( I think)  to play until they were old men.  Like TTK said they have never stopped making music, and not some reunion band thing.  Just a story of childhood friends chasing a dream.  Gotta respect them just for that.

Yes - stay tuned ... I was invited to their sound check Sat AM and then to their concert Sat @ 2:30. 

 

Since I have a (grandfathered) unlimited data plan on my 4GLTE - I may stream the sound check across Skype so folks can check it out while it's happening.  And, of course - the playback will go up Sat night.
