    6/23: Glass Tiger



    From the official site:

    The Canadian-based Glass Tiger has been creating vibrant music for almost 20 years. Their debut album, "The Thin Red Line," became the fastest selling album in Canadian history upon its release in 1986. The album, which went Platinum in Canada and Gold in the United States, yielded the hit single "Don't Forget Me (When I'm Gone)," which reached number two on the Billboard charts. "Someday," another cut from their debut album, climbed to number five.

    To keep their momentum moving forward, this hard-working band toured extensively, opening for acts like The Moody Blues, Tina Turner, and Journey -- their efforts paid off. They won a total of five Juno awards, the Canadian equivalent of the Grammy, and were Grammy-nominated in 1987 for Best New Artist.

    In an effort to keep pace with changing tastes, the band has evolved their pop sound into a heavier, stripped-down, and more rock-infused style. Their popular 1991 hard-rocker "My Town," featured a duet between Rod Stewart and Glass Tiger vocalist Alan Frew.

    Still recording and performing around the world, "Glass Tiger" remains a favorite in Canada and well respected around the globe.

    Glass Tiger is also performing:

    "Everything You Want" (Vertical Horizon)
    "George Oscar Bluth II, aka GOB, featured magician in the best selling videotape, "Girls With Low Self Esteem" invites you to enter his world.

    JLuvs, you and I seem to have opposite taste in music . I was just about to write double snore.

    If truth is relative, how do you know?

    Not a big Galss Tiger fan, but I love Everything You Want by Vertical Horizon so I'm hoping they can come close to doing it justice.

    Loved GT when I was younger. I saw them (I think in 1986/87) - they opened up for Journey. It's funny, when I saw them I only knew one song, but seeing them made me go buy the album, well...cassette. I was addicted to the whole tape for awhile.

    I hope they do well!

    Does anyone recall that Bryan Adams sang background vocals on their hit song? I can't remember if he was the producer or just a friend... and speaking of Bryan Adams.... I like to see him! But he is out on the road with Def Leppard this summer...

    He sang the background vocals on the Candian version of the single but not the American one.

    I caught the 3rd stop, I think, of the Bryan Adams/Def Leppard concert and it was awesome.
