Anvil Members – Worst Pre-Fame Jobs

Facebook: Anvil

Possibly the most unlikely phenomenon in metal music history, Canadian heavy metal band Anvil finally made it big after the release of the documentary, ‘Anvil: The Story of Anvil.’ Having existed since 1978, the band struggled to grasp fame all the way into their fifties — working day jobs the entire time to support their passion.

As documented in the film, frontman Steve ‘Lips’ Kudlow worked a job transporting food to schools and institutions for Children’s Choice Catering, as drummer Robb Reiner worked construction. After the documentary’s success, the band were selected by AC/DC to open at their first few ‘Black Ice World Tour’ shows — and yes, the band members have been able to quit their day jobs.
