I think Anvil is better as a trio. I've seen them a lot in the past few
years both as a four piece and as a 3 piece.. and when Ivan left.. it
was like they had a new fire burning.. they still play all the same
tunes (minus Smokin Green - ya bastards!!).. but you can't really tell
they're missing a guitarist.. and you can hear G5 way better.. he's a
killer bass player!
