Instumentalistobit: Drew Glackin

We've just heard of the death of Drew Glackin, New York based multi-instrumentalist who worked with bands from the Hold Steady through to Crash Test Dummies, while functioning as bassist for the Silos and lap-steel pedal player for the Jack Grace Band.

Glackin was just 44; he lost his life to heart damage caused by an overactive thyriod. A memorial fund has been opened in his name; you can find the details on The Silos MySpace.
