Sailing with the flow, Anthony took up many roles and appeared in ‘St. Joan of the Microphone’, then made his debut on screen in the TV movie ‘The Gold Bug’ in 1980. Anthony came into the real spotlight after the release of the film ‘Six Pack’!

The band soon released an album named ‘Welcome to the Hall of Mirrors’ in an association with Gilby Clarke, a former guitarist from the band ‘Guns N’ Roses’.

One may wonder why Anthony’s net worth isn’t somewhat higher, considering his successful career. One reason may be previous problems with alcohol, which caused a hiatus of several years for Anthony. However, these are apparently past problems, and although never married he is currently assumed to be dating Fiona Forbes, a Canadian TV personality.
