THE STORY OF ANVIL concerns the thirty-year attempt of a Canadian heavy-metal band to achieve the recognition the two lead members believe it deserves.
It's sad, funny, and yet joyous because these two heavy metal headbangers would probably take this life, one mostly of failure, over any other. even their families have not given up hope, despite playing at bars for crowds of a dozen head-scratching patrons.
It ends on an up note, a moment that is ephemeral at best. This brought me to the question-or questions. Who hasn't had the fame they deserved? Or who should have thrown in the towel long ago? This could be singers, actors, writer, politicians, athletes? It's an open field.
