I saw Glass Tiger live twice in the last few years. So they are still around, touring Canada.

They have two DVD's out. One is live from 1986 and another one is their videos, plus two new live tracks. I got both of them, they are worth getting. Especially the live DVD!

Caught them on the TV Series - Hit Be baby One More Time two summers ago which aired on NBC in the USA. I know they were hoping this show would spring board them back into the USA again, apparently it did not because I don't think they have done anything in the USA.....other than a new greatest hits package.

Underrated band. "Diamond Sun" was a great record, with seven killer songs.

Alan Frew. Saw him last week sing O Canada at a Toronto-Vancouver hockey game. He has grayed, but still has that cool folksy voice.

These guys have a treasure trove of unknown songs.

"Diamond Sun" is fantastic from start to finish - not a dud on the whole record. Some really heavy, deep stuff there...Suffer in Silence in particular.
