It’s already been nearly a decade since Steve “Lips” Kudlow and Robb Reiner of the Canadian metal band Anvil came into the lives of music fans far beyond the world of metal, thanks to a heartfelt documentary film, “Anvil: The Story of Anvil.” It was the story of life as a real working band, struggling to keep its musical spirit alive while facing the unforgiving obstacles inherent in the music business. Anvil’s fiery brand of music is only half the driving force of what makes its message so powerful. The other half is personal, as the film becomes as much about the beautiful friendship between the singer/guitarist and the drummer who promised each other as teens that they would keep playing until they’re old men. They kept their promise, as Lips and Robb are still traveling, writing, recording and performing together, more than 40 years on.
