I've just watched the film "Anvil - The Story of Anvil", a great Rockumentary, the true story of the metal band Anvil which didn't make it to top in 80's. The core of the members Lips(Vo./Guitar) and Robb(Drums) are still best friends who started the band together at 14, they are now in their 50s.
Because of their dedication and passion for what they're doing and the true friendship they share, the film is not just about music or be in a band, it's a lesson of life too. The whole thing was actually pretty deep.
I laughed and cried.... it was so touching, there were so many bits that I emphasized them. The reason why I'm in bands, but also the reality of being a musician is not as easy as people think. The last quote in the film by Lips says why I do what I do...
"Goes far beyond writing a good song has nothing to do with the song,
it has to do with the matter of attitude what you are willing to settle for,
who you are willing to work with, and having a good time with my life
enjoying my life.
That's the most expensive thing in life and most valuable things in life
is your relationships the people that you know,
the places you've been and the experiences you've had."
