Re: [Academy of Anvil] Foundation
- Hey Lips.
I think people tend to look for funny things in
music, and that's why the more serious Anvil songs get
Maybe they all see that the world is a sick, dirty
place. And maybe they all had enough of that.
So, instead of listening to a song like "No One to
Follow" - which I think is one of the best lyrics you
ever wrote -, people prefer banging their heads to
"Show Me Your Tits".
I get the same problem with my lyrics (I also have
a band). The ones I think are the best, more focused,
just get overlooked in favor of the funny rock'n'roll
anthems I also write.
That is to remind us that most people face music
just as another form of entertainment, nothing more,

- Okay Lips, I see you're in great shape, hmm... That's all I wanted to know. If North America is too hypnotized by "new metal", there's South America......and Europe, and Jupiter, and....................=========>
January is a tough month for us, I think. In fact, I was born during this month...long ago. I must say that all my life has been tough, and it's still goes like that... The thing I found the most difficult was to quit my native town and to stop to play music (bass) when I was 13 years old. Loosing all my friends to move to Quebec City was something, to quit my grand-parent too...but to stop playing music has been a shock.
You're damn lucky to be the musician that you are...no matter what is the "music world". Don't look at what you don't have, look at what you got. And, yunno...it's a chance I moved to Quebec City (whatever happened to me!)...cos I saw Anvil live many times. Smile, cos life is short. You know that song "Good times, bad times"?
Take care from now,

otherwise why would you have written and recorded them.
