Drew Glackin, a core member of the renowned Silos, passed away on Januray 5th, 2008 in New York after succumbing to a thyroid condition. All at Bloodshot are very saddened by the loss of our good friend, and extended our sincerest sympathies to his family and close friends.
This from some of those who knew him best:
He was unaware of an overactive thyroid condition that led to severe heart damage. He was surrounded by family and friends during his final days and hours and we are all still in a state of shock and disbelief.
Drew was adored around the world and his larger than life spirit and contagious jovial energy touched everyone he met, everywhere he went. He was a musician of the highest talent and made his mark in countless bands, record albums, and many thousands of live performances. He will be sorely missed and the memories of his music, his great humor, and his magnanimous generosity of spirit and love will be with us forever.
We will all keep Drew in our hearts, - Konrad, Rod and Walter.
From Bloodshot's Rob Miller:
The Bloodshot family and the music community in general is poorer, and less fun, with the Drew's untimely and unexpected death.
Drew liked having a good time and he loved making sure those around him were having a good time, too. I will sorely miss getting caught up in his joyful slipstream whenever and wherever our paths would cross.
