NEW ALBUM AND TOUR 2020

EXCLUSIVE INTERVIEW

 When it comes to virtues such as endurance, unconditional commitment and a thoroughly down-to-earth attitude, Anvil are the measure of all things. Like few other metal acts, the band surrounding founding members Steve ‘Lips’ Kudlow (vocals, guitars) and Robb Reiner (drums), plus bassist Chris Robertson have earned their laurels of blood, sweat and tears. Since their 2009 documentary film The Story Of Anvil, which reveals the unvarnished truth about the music industry, the world has been aware that the day-to-day life of most musicians doesn’t consist of MTV Awards, Grammy ceremonies, red carpets, champagne and caviar but mainly of energy-sapping tours de force with little sleep, junk food and meagre earnings. Yet these difficult conditions have made Anvil what they are today: a band that stands solid as a rock in the turbulent waters of a musical genre that produces like no other music by fans for fans. So, Robb Reiner refers with a sense of justified pride to Anvil’s latest release Legal At Last simply as “one more Anvil album”. Because quotes such as this show that the band has survived despite all adversities, losing none of its musical style or sense of reality. Kudlow, Reiner or Robertson would never use clichés such as “harder, faster, louder” or attempt to present their own accomplishments as superhuman feats. Robb Reiner is right: Legal At Last is simply an impressive new statement by a band that stands for the same values in 2020 as it did when it was first launched in autumn 1978.

MULTI-PLATINUM GRAMMY AWARD WINNING

ENGINEER & PRODUCER

TOMMY BOLIN ... JUDAS PRIEST...STANLEY CLARKE...MICK RONSON...PHIL COLLINS...JEFF BECK...AND ON AND ON ...

EXCLUSIVE INTERVIEW

 

Legendary guitarist & songwriter Tommy Bolin’s Teaser album was recorded at The Record Plant in Los Angeles, CA in July 1975 with additional recording at Electric Lady Studios in New York (September), and Trident Studios in London (October). It was mixed at Trident Studios in London by Dennis MacKay. Production credits went to Tommy Bolin and Lee Kiefer except for “People People” and “Marching Powder,” which were produced by Dennis MacKay. Those two tracks were done late to fill out the album out better and required Tommy and Dennis to travel back to Electric Lady to record the material. MacKay would go on to co-produce Private Eyes with Tommy in 1976.

Private Eyes/Tommy Bolin released in 1976. After recording finished at Cherokee the album was mixed at Trident Studios in London. MacKay demonstrated great skill in editing and mixing the material, turning seven days of rapid recording by an unrehearsed band into an iconic album. Dennis MacKay would go on to engineer or produce a remarkable range of artists including Tommy Bolin, Jeff Beck, Judas Priest, Return to Forever, Billy Cobham, Brand X, Gong, Pat Travers, Al DiMeola, David Bowie, Mick Ronson, Jack Bruce, Whitney Houston and the list goes on and on …. Mackay won a Grammy Award in 2010 for the Stanley Clarke Band Best Contemporary Jazz Album.

Raymond Andrew Keller II
Guest Occupation: Award Winning Author, Ufologist, Inter-Dimensional Traveler, Paranormal Researcher
Guest Biography:

Raymond Andrew Keller II, also known as "Cosmic Ray", is an award winning author and retired history professor, who has garnered international acclaim for his Venus Rising trilogy.  He has been actively involved in extra-terrestrial research since 1967, living and working in 44 different countries, writing about UFO's and paranormal activity.  Keller established the Outer Space International Research and Investigations Society (OSIRIS) in 1986 and has conducted numerous excursions to UFO hot spots throughout the world, communicating directly with extraterrestrials on many occasions. His classic Venus Rising trilogy focuses on the Venusians, and explores the conditions of life on Venus in many dimensions from a perspective of conspiracies, history, theosophy, ufology and current events.

 

The first book in the trilogy is Venus Rising - A Concise History of the Second Planet, which reveals the complex facets of Venusians, who look almost exactly like us, and have infiltrated human society in all nations and have been visiting Earth since prehistoric times.  Book two is titled, The Final Countdown:  Rockets to Venus that brings to life some of the most fascinating and enigmatic people behind the scenes of paranormal activities, such as the enigmatic psychic Maria Orsic and the Vril Society.  It includes never-before-seen classified documents from the files of military and space agencies that clearly reveal that the powers-that-be have known about intelligent life in outer space for much longer than they were ever going to reveal.

 

Book 3 of the Venus Rising Trilogy is a concise history of the 2nd planet titled, Cosmic Ray's Excellent Venus Adventure.  Filled with mind bending stories and encounters with Venusians in flying saucers, who are monitoring atomic blasts in the desert.  A Canadian Defense Minister "spills the beans" about Venusians and other aliens living and working among us and mentions Cosmic Ray traversing the mysterious Dimension X with the Queen of Outer Space.  Chapter 5 is titled, Paradise, California which sheds a blast of illumination on the mysteries surrounding the recent fires that some say were controlled by directed energy weapons.  Each book is a gem in its own right, and a jewel of a find for those seeking the underlying truths behind a thinly veiled facade.  You can find out more on Ray's website, at www.venusconcisehistory.com.

This is when her awakening started, almost 20-fateful years ago!

 

As she sat there in disbelief, the doctors wanting to do more invasive surgery, a voice welled up deep within her and yelled…. NO!!!!

As her mouth involuntarily blurted out NO, the nurse and Jennifer looked at each other in astonishment. Jennifer didn’t know where that voice came from and has spent almost 20-years exploring, healing, evolving, and discovering who and what that inner voice is.

Healing and immersing herself in the inner work to discover the source of “The Voice” has been an enlightening and magical journey. After healing holistically, Jennifer continued the inner journey immersing herself in Kriya Yoga meditation which led to the answer of who and what that “voice” is.

In 2018 it became clear she had to Awaken All Hearts to Divine Love, that this would be her life purpose moving forward. She delved into mastering the science of the Heart and became a Certified Heart Coherence and Resilience Coach. As a Certified HeartMath Coach she caringly mentors people in discovering their true authentic self by  awakening their own heart, accessing their heart wisdom and discover their own divinity.

Mary D. Rachford
Guest Occupation: Physical Therapist & Co-Owner of Naperville’s FYZICAL Therapy & Balance Center
Guest Biography:

Prior to establishing Naperville Physical Therapy, Mary managed a hospital-affiliated rehabilitation clinic in Elmhurst, where she was raised. Since graduating in 1988, she has concentrated her practice in orthopedic and sports rehabilitation with a special interest in fibromyalgia/chronic pain and sports injuries. Mary participated in volleyball as a collegiate athlete and as a high school and grade school coach. She is a certified specialist in ASTYM, a highly effective treatment for chronic tendonitis. Mary is the proud mother of Sean, Colin and Kathryn.

“The physical therapy profession has gone through many changes in the 25 plus years that I have been an active member of it. I am truly grateful every day that I own FYZICAL Therapy and Balance Centers – Naperville, not only for the phenomenal staff that have chosen to work for my husband Gary and me, but for the amazing patients that continue to surprise and lift up our practice in more ways than I can mention."

For the past 20 years, we have been on the leading edge of the latest technologies at FYZICAL (formerly Naperville Physical Therapy).

  • In 1994, we were one of the first privately owned clinics in Naperville. Today, we are now the longest lasting clinic in Naperville.
  • In 1996, we became the first clinic in the area to offer lymphedema treatments.
  • In 2001, we were the first clinic in the Western suburbs to be certified in the ASTYM process, the first tool assisted technology that no one else was providing at the time.
  • In 2003, we became one of the first therapy clinics in Naperville to offer custom foot orthotics.
  • In 2010, we had one of the first trained dry needling therapists in the state.
  • In 2011, we had one of the first Schroth trained therapists in the state.
  • In 2013, we became the first therapy clinic to offer the nutraMetrix supplement line to patients.
  • In 2014, we became the first FYZICAL clinic in Illinois.

All of these additions were based on thorough research, significant training and sometimes a gut feeling. At FYZICAL we have established a highly experienced staff in a state-of-the-art clinic that truly cares for the entire patient not just a broken body part.

Eric and Nancy Martin
Guest Occupation: Cannabis CBD farmer and CBD Production experts
Guest Biography:

Nancy Martin's Bio:
I have had many health problems since being diagnosed with fibromyalgia years ago. I always had HOPE that one day I would be WELL. I have been on the holistic path of wellness for many many years now. In early 2015 I came down with a bacterial infection in my mouth. In March of 2016 I came down with an upper respiratory infection which had me "down" by July and I went to a wellness clinic. My pain level from the fibromyalgia was a 10 of 10. I tested for H-pylori, ulcer, adrenal stress syndrome, and PTSD. We spent thousands on a year long program in 2017, but not much improvement.

In late 2017 and early 2018 I met a Tennessee CBD processor and bought two 1500mg bottles. I took 1ml daily. I had previously tried some oil produced in Florida that had no effect after 6 months. I had spent decades of suffering with the pain of fibromyalgia that was like stabbing/shooting in different areas of my body. Into the 2nd month on this high quality CBD oil my pain was reduced to occasional flutters. Into the 3rd month after upgrading to the 2000mg bottle I looked at Eric and said we need to learn to make this oil to help others who're suffering. Previously in 2008 I had declared to Eric that I wanted to help others and that it was heavy on my heart to do so. Three weeks later I came down with two different instances of flu and lost hearing in my right ear and equilibrium. I have always wanted to help others and now that I'm in better health due to CBD oil Eric and I have our own CBD processing business. I'm fulfilling my purpose to help others. I now know that if you feel better you do better and you have HOPE you can be WELL!

Eric Martin:

I began looking into Hemp in 2014 with the passage of the Farm Bill that started the Hemp Pilot Program for participating states. After reading online about cannabis based business into 2017 we had the pleasure of meeting a participant in the Tennessee Pilot Program who was processing a high quality CBD. Nancy saw personal results by the second month on his product. He encouraged us to process our own and get involved. We later trained with him on processing. Our lives have been changed by his generosity and friendship. We've "paid it forward" by helping others in this business as he helped us. We're a health and wellness based processor and strive for as clean, healthy, and nutritious product as we can make. Come on this journey with us to nourish your health, strength, and spirit!

Adam Eidinger
Guest Occupation: Political Activist, DC Statehood Advocate
Guest Biography:

Adam Eidinger is one of DC’s premier political activists, having been involved locally and nationally in a wide range of social justice issues. His causes include anti-war, cannabis and hemp politics, GMO labeling and DC statehood. 

Eidinger most recently served as the sponsor of the Committee to Hold Jack Evans Accountable, which collected signatures from residents registered to vote in DC’s Ward 2 with the aim of recalling Ward 2 Council member Jack Evans, who is under scrutiny for appearing to use his elected office to solicit employment from law and lobbying firms and for receiving money and stock shares from a sign company that benefited from legislation he promoted. The campaign fell short of the required amount of signatures needed to hold a recall election. 

DC Council members were poised to vote earlier this month to expel Evans, its longest serving member, from its governing body. Such a vote and expulsion has never transpired in the District of Columbia. On January 7, 2020, Evans submitted his letter of resignation, resigning his elected position effective January 17th. Evans, who has held office for nearly 29 years, is still the target of a federal grand jury investigation. 

Adam served as the sponsor of Ballot Initiative #71, for marijuana legalization, which electors passed by more than 70% in the 2014 General Election. Eidinger is a cofounder of DCMJ.org, which was formed in 2013 to change the outdated marijuana laws in the District of Columbia. Adam was recently invited to the White House for a meeting to discuss removing marijuana from the federal list of controlled substances.

Adam is also a longtime DC statehood advocate who was arrested in an act of civil disobedience with Senator Brown in a protest in front of the United States Senate in 2011.

Brian David Anderson
Guest Occupation: Photojournalist, Self-Employed at Tri-Vortex Institute
Guest Biography:
A Free & Alternative Life
is the Foundation
For Alternative Health Applications
 
 
Brian grew up in the “burbs” of Dallas and graduated from Irving High School in 1971. A knee injury during his junior year of high school ended hopes of participating in small college basketball so he focused all of his energies on newspaper and commercial photography. Brian’s mother, Vonnie, worked as an editor for the Irving Daily News and Brian photographed numerous assignments for the paper including covering Dallas Cowboys football games as a sideline photographer.
During Brian’s freshman year of high school, a medical doctor persuaded his father and five other individuals that the cure for their diabetes was the surgical removal of their pituitary glands. Keith Andersen was the last of the five test victims to die. The loss of his father from this controversial medical procedure two weeks after Brian’s high school graduation made him acutely and painfully aware of the shortcomings of traditional western medicine.
After the first semester of his freshman year, Brian transferred from East Texas State University to the University of Missouri at Columbia to pursue his dream of photographing assignments for the National Geographic Magazine. His advisor was Missouri photojournalism instructor Cliff Edom who coined the word photojournalism and had placed over 10 of his students with the National Geographic photo staff over a 40-year teaching career. Unfortunately, Edom was forced into retirement during Brian’s sophomore year and replaced with as award winning newspaper photographer, Angus McDougal.
Due to his very strong portfolio, Brian was one of the youngest staff photographer interns to work for a major metropolitan newspaper during the summers of 1972 and 1973. An odd set of circumstances set the foundation for Brian having a spot news picture he took to be published on the front page the very first day he reported for work at the Dallas Times Herald.
 
Subtle Energy Research
With his journalism background, Brian entered the fields of chemistry, physics and alternative health care as an investigator seeking the truth rather than a student seeking a passing grade. Brian was free to take any kind of risks and follow all kinds of paths and he did not care what others thought about his theories, directions, methods, or goals.
The starting gun had fired for the marathon that was to become Tri-Vortex Technology.
