Cinq à Six in the Summer

Anvil's Robb Reiner ready to reveal his paintings in Montreal

 In a world of musical stereotypes - Heavy Metal bands like AC/DC , Motorhead and Metallica tend to take on the mantle of the angry, alienated and rebellious outcast. It's a world made up of mostly young males pumping their fists to woofer shattering bass drum beats and sizzling lead guitar solos.

So - when one of Metal's most famous drummers - drops the 'drum sticks' to pick up a brush to paint on canvas - you have to be just a little curious ! 

Today, in our Toronto studio is Robb Reiner -  the drummer of the Canadian  iconic metal band, Anvil. Next Thursday - Sept 25th  Reiner will present his first 'street-level' gallery exhibition - at Montreal's BBAM Gallery.
