ANVIL members Steve "Lips" Kudlow (vocals, guitar) and Robb Reiner (drums), along with director Sacha Gervasi, were on hand at the Apple Store in New York City on Wednesday, March 25 to show clips from their acclaimed documentary, "Anvil! The Story of Anvil", and answer questions from fans. The free event was hosted by XM's Boneyard host Eddie Trunk, who also has a long-running radio show, "Friday Night Rocks", on New York's Q104.3 FM. Trunk's "That Metal Show" co-hosts, Don Jameson and Jim Florentine, shared stories about their experiences meeting ANVIL, and FOZZY vocalist Chris Jericho (of WWE wrestling fame) asked questions and hung out with the band.
The appearance is now available for download as a free iTunes podcast at this location.
