Anvil Singer Surprised Paul McCartney Knew Him

(Classic Rock) Anvil frontman Steve 'Lips' Kudlow recalls in a new interview when he met Paul McCartney at an awards show and being amazed that the Beatles icon knew who he was.

Lips was at the People's choice Awards with drummer Robb Reiner, hoping to win an award for the 2008 documentary Anvil! The Story Of Anvil, only to lose out to dolphin documentary The Cove.

He tells the Sydney Morning Herald: "We were at the People's Choice Awards with the film and I could see Paul McCartney sitting at a table 20 feet away.

".... we rush up to Paul McCartney, and he's surrounded by his people, but he takes a look at Robb and I and goes, 'Oh my God, it's the Anvil boys. Are we rockin' tonight?' Paul McCartney knew who we were. I almost passed out." Read his full comments here.
