Glass Tiger’s Alan Frew Suffers Stroke

Alan Frew, lead singer of Canadian rock band Glass Tiger, announced Saturday via Instagram that he suffered a stroke last week.

Frew said in his statement that he wanted the news to come directly from him, and not “from the rumour mill.”

“This will now be the fight of my life. I am alive, obviously , and have all my brain power,” wrote Frew. “I have suffered right-sided trauma but I am fighting the Warrior’s fight already. I AM A WARRIOR make no mistake about that and I WILL release the beautiful CD I have worked so hard on and I WILL perform it live for you ASAP ….this I promise you.”

Glass Tiger formed in 1983 and had several hit singles including “Don’t Forget Me (When I’m Gone)” and “Someday“. They were nominated for a Grammy Award for Best New Artist in 1987.

This my friends is one of the toughest stories I have ever had to write not only because I am right- handed and I am typing to you with my left but because what I am going to tell you is very difficult for me but I want you to hear it from me directly and not from the rumour mill. On Thursday I suffered a stroke. That’s right. A clot in my brain. This will now be the fight of my life. I am alive, obviously , and have all my brain power. I have suffered right-sided trauma but I am fighting the Warrior’s fight already. I AM A WARRIOR make no mistake about that and I WILL release the beautiful CD I have worked so hard on and I WILL perform it live for you ASAP ….this I promise you. Those of you who pray by all means do so and those of you like me who don’t send me your energy and I will use it all to return to you as soon as I can. Stroke is NOT an age disease be you 15, 25, or 55. Stroke is a human condition . I am lucky and I will treasure that . I will see you all soon enough when I PERISCOPE one day and I WILL sing for you again, fear not. You guys are a major part of my journey back. Peace & Love Alan
