Former Anvil Bassist Glenn Five Lashes Back At Robb Reiner

(Classic Rock) Former Anvil bassist Glenn Five has lashed back after drummer Robb Reiner compared his departure from the band to cancer surgery.

Five quit in 2012 after 15 years and later described Reiner and frontman Lips Hudlow as "grumpy old men" who made him feel expendable despite his long-term loyalty.

The drummer recently told Geeks Of Doom that Anvil were much happier with new member Sal Italiano, and said of the lineup change: "There was no real transition; we had cancer surgery and we were saved."

Now Five says: "What Mr Reiner doesn't realise is that he isn't insulting me he's insulting the thousands of fans, hundreds of peers, and dozens of close friends of Anvil who, over the years, have told me they loved my contribution to the band.

"Shame that he has disrespected the fans and the band in such a manner just to save face with himself. Saying my departing was like the band had 'cancer surgery' just shows me how juvenile and idiotic he really is. I left I wasn't removed." He has more to say.
