TORONTO – The vocalist of the Canadian rock band Glass Tiger has suffered a stroke, according to his Instagram account.
Award-winning singer-songwriter Alan Frew, 58, writes that he had the stroke on Thursday.
Frew, who also plays guitar, writes that he doesn’t have brain damage but has damaged the right side of his body, including his dominant hand.
He writes that he is “fighting the warrior’s fight” and promises his fans that he will release his latest CD and perform live as soon as he can.
