Anvil - Bassist Leaves The Band


Glenn Five is calling it quits after 16 years and six albums with Canadian heavy metallers Anvil, including the band's latest album Juggernaut Of Justice.

Glenn Five justified his departure in a press release: "Playing in Anvil has given me some of the best years of my life. However, after nearly 16 years with the band, the time has come to move on and try new musical endeavors. Although Anvil has been a great band to play in, I have been limited creatively. I have a wide taste in music and I feel that it's time to broaden my horizons."

Metal bands are always indifferent towards bassists.

It's no secret that Anvil always meant Lips and Rob Reiner. Too bad, the guy was a great bassist, and he's leaving just as they finally found a bit of success.

Oh, I agree. Glenn has always been "the other guy". As awesome as he is, Anvil is and always will be about about Lips and Rob. I understand him not wanting to be in a band that you don't have much input in. Feeling restricted on your creativity really isn't that fun, no mater how awesome the band is.
